    Many places offer lesson rental packages. XC skiing is a sport where you do want lessons. Our nordic club has 2 hour lessons for $30...what's not to love about that?

    There is so much more than just trusting the tires. It is whole different skill set, more related to dirt biking (motocross style) than road bicycling.

    For gearing, it's really going to depend on type of terrain and riding you do. I'd go with what your shop recommends. Wolf seems to be "the" brand for add on granny gears. That's what I have and it's...

    Hybrids aren't good at anything, IMO. They aren't very good on road or trail. MTBs have different gearing that road bikes, so for a partner to not be on a similarly geared bike might be a problem.

    If you have calibre, you should be able to fix the formatting.

    Go to preferences> conversion > common options > heuristic processing. I've used this to fix a number of books with funky formatting.

    Teva no longer makes the Links. You can occasionally find leftovers on closeout. 5-10 is really the only flat sole bike shoe company out there, but skate shoes will work too.

    I think it was a special Interbike edition. There's excellent commentary coming out: dirt rag, Amanda Batty, some others..... I hope SOS loses its shorts on this as their response is reprehensible.
