Gear Talk / payment for gear
« on: February 05, 2014, 04:27:43 pm »
I have some camping and touring stuff I would like to sell.  What is your experience with payment methods? I have sold a few things in the past, trusted the honesty of the esteemed members of this group, and never been burned. I looked a bit at the suggested method by ACA, (an intermediate holder), but it seems pretty expensive.  So what do you recommend? Thanks, Tim

Gear Talk / Full coverage helmets
« on: December 24, 2013, 03:53:17 pm »
I'm due for a new helmet. I have about 5 years on my Giro. I think I'd like to try one of the full- coverage types from companies like Bern or TSG.  What's your experience?  Ventilation? Fit? Headlamp attachment? Thanks, Tim

Gear Talk / thunder jug

I  used a foldable plastic Nalgene bottle for a tj in a liitle backyard campout a couple weeks ago.  It leaked a bit.  This is not a good thing.  Do you have a favorite? 100% reliable?  No joking around, now.

Gear Talk / Surley Troll
« on: January 09, 2012, 09:19:53 am »
Opine me, please, on any experience you may have had with the Surly Troll for road touring. I like the idea of being able to fit wide 26" tires and mudguards on a sloping top tube bike.  My Kona Sutra is pretty limited that way. Are the chain stays too short for rear saddlebags? Thanks
