    Sounds good. Any recommendations for places to stay? It looks like the only hotels with availability in the area are the quality inn and the microtel inn/suites in manfield. Do you know if either of these are clean places that you would recommend?

    I was thinking of doing the pine creek gorge this week as well. Coming from Philadelphia area, I was thinking of staying in Williamsport. Is that a safe area? Also, is there parking at the Slate Run trailhead? Realistically, I will drive up from Philly, then bike from Slate Run southward...

    How does the Abus 540 U Lock mount to the bike?

    Hi, I am looking at buying the Abus 540 U Lock and was wondering how the mounting shackle affixed to the bike. Does your bike need a straight section of round tube for the mounting adapter? I have a BH Rebel Lynx Full Suspension bike, and was not sure if I would need a pannier to carry the U Lock.

    How are you guys lifting your ebikes over your truck tailgate pad?

    Looks great. I have a 5 foot truck bed. How long is it when folded up? Would this ramp work with the tailgate closed, to get the bike over the closed tailgate and onto a tailgate pad? Any pictures?

    How are you guys lifting your ebikes over your truck tailgate pad?

    What you suggested with the ramps is basically what I am already doing. Currently, I have a 2x4 piece of plywood that I keep in the bed. I use the plywood to wheel the eBike up into the bed, and then strap it down with a couple ratchet straps. I use a Gorilla stepstool to help me get into the...

    Good evening, I have a BH Rebel Lynx, size Medium frame. I am shopping for a bike bag that I could use to bring my eBike into a hotel that does not normally allow bikes to be brought inside. Think Bed and Breakfasts that would be horrified at the thought of a muddy eBike ruining the new...
