The photos are too big for this download and I don't know how to compress them.  Please email me at and I will send you the photos.  If there is any particular part of the bike you wish to see, please let me know.  I made a mistake about the tires-they are Continental City Contacts, not Gator skins.  My apologies.

I have a blue Surly Long Haul Trucker for sale-46 cm frame, 26" wheels ( I am 5'2").  It's a great, solid touring bike that got me up and down the mountain of Colorado in 2011.  Selling because I still prefer my custom made Bob Jackson touring bike  :)

Great Lakes / Amtrak and walk on bicycles
« on: April 04, 2013, 09:27:55 pm »
I made my reservations and reserved a spot on Amtrak for a walk on bike.  I am leaving the station in Lincoln, IL and travelling to Chicago, IL.  The chart on the Amtrak website mentions that Illinois Downstate Services allows for walk on bikes.  I want to be sure that this means me.  Can anyone help me with that?

Next issue.  I have never taken a bike on Amtrak before.  What can I expect as far as bike rack on the train and advice on strapping the bike in during the train ride?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks Jennifer!  I have started to look through the article and links on the website and am finding them to be very helpful.

General Discussion / Mountain Biking the Colorado Trail

I would like to mountain bike the Colorado Trail in its' entirety next summer. 

I am a seasoned road tourer, but not single track touring.

I have questions about gear, equipment, food/water planning, and advice for traveling light but smart.

Is there someone who has done the CT that would be willing to correspond with me?
