As I am sure happens to many...the bike trip is off.

This bike is for sale in nearly brand new condition, less than 800 miles on it. It has never been dropped. No marks, scratches or anything. I would like to sell the bike with the accessories and gear I have purchased.

I am 6'2" and weigh 225 and the bike handles like a dream....even when loaded. Longest day I have done with it was a 103 miles through some fairly hilly terrain and I loved it. If I was still going on the trip I would keep it.

Specialized Avatar Seat (and original seat and post)
XLC Seat post
Power Grip pedals (and originals)
2 Bottle cages
2 Thermal large capacity water bottles
Avenir pump
Two sided kick stand (great for repairs and when its windy)
SKS Full Fenders
Planet Bike rear light
Delta Mountain rear rack
1 pair Seattle Sports "Titan"  waterproof rear bags in yellow
1 Eleven81 handlebar bag (quite large w/top map case,main and front pockets and two side mesh pouches)
GPS/SmartPhone handlebar mount
Catseye Enduro 8 cyclocomp

I have all paperwork and bike is still under warranty & still has a free tune-up available from Harris Cyclery in Massachusetts.

Asking $1000 for everything or $800 for just the bike. I will consider PARTIAL trade for a hybrid street/mountain bike.

Gear Talk / Re: "SKS" Fenders??

Here is a pic of my LHT and SKS fenders exactly as they were installed by my LBS.

I have ridden in some pretty heavy rain this year with absolutely no issues whatsoever.  No toe overlap, (I am 6'2" and the bike is a 60cm). No excess spray.

I called Harris Cyclery to see if possibly my fenders had been installed incorrectly and I explained why I was asking by quoting some of the posts in this thread. They laughed and said they have seen FAR MORE problems with fenders mounted too close than too far. I ask why and was told that having the fenders too close can cause small objects that would otherwise be picked up by the tire and slung off to actually wedge/contact both the fender and tire causing cuts and possible flats.

Works for me and that is all that matters.

BTW....my fenders were installed at my LBS, (Harris Cyclery...home of the great Sheldon Brown), and they have about the same clearance as yours.

I agree that the only issue with fender placement would be "toe strike" during turns and if you are not having that problem then ride on my friend.

I too, have a Surly LHT 26er.

I have the SKS full fenders installed and love them. THEY ARE NOT PLASTIC! as several posters have contended. They are metal coated with plastic and very heavy duty.

Although I have yet to need this feature I love the quick release in case of something jamming between the tire and fender.

Routes / Route 66?
« on: August 07, 2011, 06:50:16 am »
I live in Massachusetts and would like to ride to Phoenix, AZ. I am considering heading west on the Hudson/Mohawk trail......south on the Erie/Great Lakes system to Chicago and then Route 66 to Arizona.

How feasible is this?
