"The first 6 miles was resurfaced by Lake County 2 years ago, this section now continues from Knife River to McQuade Rd. just past the 1/2 marathon start line. The City of Duluth may resurface their section next year, McQuade Rd. to London Rd. with…"
"I think we paid $135 for one night in a pretty large king room at a Super 8 in Superior, Wisconsin. There are some decent deals in Wisconsin that are close to the race. Just stay away from the Androy. They are trying to rehab that place, and the…"
"I usually don't stay down town, we look for smaller hotels in and around the area. I don't mind a 10 or 15 minute drive in the morning if ti means I don't have to stay some place for two days and it will be reasonably priced. I know…"

"Each have their pros and cons. K2 is a hi-low, which makes buying wheels harder, but this set up is supposed to have better handling. I think K2's bearings are better, they ship with TwinCam bearings that are serviceable. I don't think the…"
"The mounting on these frames is not standard such that you can change the frame with a product from another vendor. They mount with side bolts over the mounting point. To my knowledge, K2 is the only one that makes this kind of frame. If they have…"
