March 27 - 1 x Drivetrains & Gigantic Superbad Imperial Coffee Stout

It's time again to sign up for 30 Days of Biking, a fun challenge to encourage people to ride every day of the month of April - which is known for dicey weather. Ben is looking to take the challenge again, but Chain seems a little hesitant..


  1. Old Spokes Home/Bike Recycle Vermont benefit fundraiser at American Flatbread on Tuesday March 29th. You can buy raffle tickets for an All-City Macho Man Disc bike online if you can't make the event.
  2. The Vermont Walk Bike Summit is planned for April 1st and 2nd in Rutland at the fancy Paramount Theater. Find Ben on Friday for an impromptu skid competition!
  3. Our friend Darren of Vermont Bicycle Shop is holding his grand opening brouhaha from April 1st to April 4th, and promises all kinds of deals will be had, so get over there and get in on the fun. 

With the announcement of the Sram Eagle 1x12 drivetrain system, BTH has a light discussion on the pros and cons of a "one-by' setup. Is it easier, cheaper, lighter, simpler, better?
