Gear Talk / Rims
« on: October 07, 2003, 11:18:04 pm »
I'm rebuilding my 1976 Mercian touring bike and would like to know what people are using for heavy-duty touring rims. I have 27" Super Champion Model 58s on right now (used them to do the entire TransAm trail in 1981 - they're bullet-proof!), but the 700C version of that rim is hard to find (long out of production). I'm considering the Bontrager "Clyde" and the Mavic "T520". Any other options are appreciated

This is a combination question: First, I'm taking Amtrak to Jacksonville to start the Southern Tier route. Are there any hotels nearby the station (NW of downtown, Edgewood Ave. and New Kings Rd)as I will be arriving late afternoon/early evening (nothings a given with Amtrak arrival times!)and don't want to ride too far.

Secondly, once arriving in Jacksonville, is there a preferred route to St. Augustine? I see Hwy 1 heads directly there but would likely be heavy traffic. How is Hwy 13/San Jose Blvd (goes along the St Johns River, then heads east towards St. Augustine)?
