The bike arrived and it took perhaps less than 2 minutes to become rideable. It rides good enough for my needs.

Thanks for the suggestion of a bike lock. It's annoying to not be carefree but last year it was not uncommon to hear of people having their bikes "borrowed" without their permission.

Body Paint - What kind?

Heya.

Which type of body/face paint will hold up against the BRC environment during the day time for the majority of a day?

Please provide urls as well, if you are able.
Also, please share your experiences with body/face paint use if you have any.

Danke.

Ahhh HAW! A fold up bike may be the best bet for myself! That is more depending on whom I end up setting a rideshare up with. I do like the idea of a compact bike to lessen the annoyance of huffing it away from BRC.

Soy cheese!

Purchase a bike between the Reno Airport and BRC?

Heya! Are there any close stores/shops that would be selling cheap bikes that would be easily accessed between the trip from the Reno Airport to BRC? My current guess is that I will be attempting to find a ride share that meets up at the airport Sunday night or early Monday if that matters in the av...

Bloody nose - weee

Did anyone start getting bloody noses at random (well, what appears random) at Burning Man? I got there on Tues and started having problems around Thurs. That was the only problem I had during the entire trip. The heat just gave me energy and the dust didn't trigger any of my old astma problems. Yay...
