How does one get a copy of the above magazine? I subscribe to Cycle World but have seen no mention of this special issue. Ive searched online and cant find much either. Even CWs website doesnt really mention it.
I believe there is a thread on it, and the magazine is on newsstands now.

My thoughts too. Holan makes a set, but from what I'm told they're just about unobtanium. I used to import them, and the lack of a supply was a contributing factor as to why I dropped the entire line.

Wow, that sounds like an awesome trip -- I'm very jealous. Please let me know how well they hold up.
