    The Internet tells me it is open so that could be an option, although I've always arrived after it closes at 5pm and it's a bit of an uphill ride to get there from the trail to the campground.

    STA is 73. HTA is 71.5. The plan is for a Force 1 group. I'm sort of torn between 1x and double. I'm sold on 1x for cx racing and trail riding but I'm worried that the gaps in gearing and limited...

    I've had a Soma Double cross (canti brakes) since 2012 and think it's a great bike for commuting and a good bike for gravel, light trail riding, and 'cross racing. When I first built it up it had the...

    Arundel Dave-O cages are carbon and sometimes carbon, like most materials, fails. I've seen plastic cages crack in extreme cold, steel and ti cages crack at a weld, and carbon cages crack because...

    I'm not a fan of factory wheelsets but for a budget wheelset I wouldn't consider Velomine a cheap eBay "hand-built." They're a real shop in IL with an online store and a solid reputation (lots of...

    Velomine is another good place to look for value-minded wheelets. They sell expensive stuff too but if I'm having a wheelset built with something like King hubs or Enve rims I'd have a wheelbuilder I...

    I'm pretty sure Mary uses Falls Creek Outfitters (don't quote me on that tho) which I've used myself and have been happy with. Bicycling Magazine had a cover story last year featuring a cover photo...

    Hey guys, sorry I wasn't able to make it to HH last night. Thanks to Dane for getting the ball rolling and taking care of team captain stuff. Dane, if you're looking to pass the baton, I'm cool with...
  16. Beerneuring #10

    As I mentioned previously, Sehkraft opened an hour later than listed so we had to take a pass during the Lucky 13 Brewvet. Since they are closing for good today ndubs and I paid a visit last night...
  17. Beerneuring #9

    We would bookend the DC and Maryland breweries with two in Shirlington, first stop being Cap City and the last stop being New District. I want to like this place more but the most memorable thing...
  18. Beerneuring #8

    Atlas Brew Works would be the last stop of the day in DC. By now it's pretty much dark out but the warming powers of alcohol are doing their job. They changed the setup of the tasting room since last...

    Next stop, The Public Option. Last year during BAFS we were the only people in the place but this year it was packed. I was glad to see that since I think the owners and staff are pretty awesome and...

    Continuing south we made our way to Right Proper Brookland. This is their production facility which has a nice, albeit small, tasting room. As Sunyata mentioned, they have some rad murals.

    By now the snow had let up and the stops were closer together. From 3 Stars it was a quick trip to Hellbender. It's like a two for one with these breweries they're so close. Hellbender filed for...

    From Denizens it was back into the city for a quick stop at 3 Stars.

    Next it was a long slog (but in the snow so it was pretty and fun) north to Denizens in Silver Spring. It was warm inside and they have a really nice hot air hand dryer that works great for thawing...
  24. Beerneuring #2

    Next stop was to be Sehkraft and we were there right when they opened at 11 am. Except they weren't open. A women came out and explained their opening would be delayed until noon. Not terribly...

    Thirteen breweries proved to be too lofty a goal but in the end 12 hearty souls joined at various points while four of us stuck it out from beginning to end for a total of nine breweries throughout...
