I need a second set of 26" MTB wheels with 6 hole disc brakes to mount some road tires on for touring. PM me if anyone has some they want to sell.

I drove a Austin 1300GT complete with a sand yacht on the roof in the UK in the 70s, was stopped but they just gave me an advisory warning.

Of course there is, anyone who thinks an Element is too small needs to give their head a shake. It just takes some imagination:loll

The first time I tried it

SR50, handy for picking up the car after a night in the bar

There's been an XCW 525, a CT90 and an '08 KLR jammed in there too:loll.

Any other bicycle fits in fully assembled including full DH rigs and even a 10' surfboard, but the tandem does need to lose a wheel to fit

From the Rivendell list, a peek inside the Waterford factory (images too large to link here):
Richard and Johanna at Waterford very kindly indulged my curiosity for their amazing workshop in Waterford. I got to see Riv's, Gunnar's, Waterford's and a Schwinn Paramount even in all stages of construction. I even saw a the wall of boxes with tubeset's already labeled with the future frames they were going to (one Atlantis in that wall I saw!). It was a brief tour but Richard answered all my questions and I can only say that if you are looking for custom geometry in a steel frame it looks to me like Waterford has a great system for delivering hand built bikes. Enjoy the pics, lots of Riv content I promise!

I follow the Waterford FB page. It's pretty amazing how humble the whole operation seems.

Dammit - now I just have to go look.

BTW, beautiful weather in AZ this weekend. I managed about 120 miles (58, 46 and 16).

It's worth it. The Gunnar Fast Lane is my kind of ride.

Yeah, I'm in shorts and a long-sleeved T-shirt, today. It's awesome.
