http://sheldonbrown.com/harris/tools/cassette.htmlThe other one (the Unior) works fine too
At the top of the first page above they have two tools designed to undo the lockring on a cassette using the chainstays and turning the cranks/wheels backwards. I have the original Pamir Hypercracker mentioned on the page and it works perfectly well.
The rafting in Idaho...what river out of what town? Also, was it a one day raft trip?In our case a day trip on the Salmon river while we were in Riggins ID. It would have been better with higher water levels, but was still fun. I think there are multiday options depending on the time of year and the water levels. A local said to use a particular company, but I forget the name. It was out of town a few miles to the east. They were very accommodating and had a place to lock up our stuff.
Make sure to swing through the Adventure Cycling office in Missoula!Yeah, I forgot that one! It is worth a stop. I assume there is still free ice cream, cold drinks, and a floor pump. That makes it pretty close to heaven
My bike is set up a little sportier than most tour bikesGood choice. That makes for a more comfortable ride in my opinion. I like the same aggressive position I have on my road bike. I really think that the more upright posture is a handicap on a long tour. It is less efficient in a headwind and puts more weight on the butt, and stresses the lower back. To me is just generally less comfortable.
We are biking the TransAmerican trail in 2010 from first of June to ? going from Oregon to VA. We want to also enjoy the country on the way and can take 3-4 months to do the distance. There are 4 of us, and two are going to switch off driving a small RV, so we can go slightly off route for side trips. I'm looking for things that some of you who have done this route either did or wish they did that we can add to our plans. A raft trip? Great side trips in Yellowstone? Particularly great hikes? Unusual places to eat, visit or see? What were some of your best memories? Thanks!We went rafting in Idaho and that was fun. If time were less tight we would like to have seen Glacier NP, Rocky Mountain NP, and more of the Tetons.
unless you can no longer buy a 9 speed STI style shifter ?? Does anyone have an idea if these will still be sold in 15 years?No but it seems likely since you can still buy 7 speed STI shifters from Harris Cyclery or at least could last time I checked.
Like most things you get what you pay forSometimes, but often relatively basic gear is as good and in some ways better than the high end stuff.
