Gear Talk / Novara Safari to LHT 2013 project
« on: March 10, 2013, 10:42:41 pm »
I had an '07 Safari that was stolen, replaced with an '08. I hate the '08 frame. I am now moving back from Africa to Europe and am planning to replace the Safari with the disk trucker. I have not put many miles on in the last two years due to where I am living and am just going to swap all the components over to the LHT. My summer project...

Gear Talk / How to remove keyed steering tube sleeves?
« on: May 17, 2010, 07:13:01 pm »
Replacing the too low handlebars and non-adjustable stem on my new bike, which unfortunately for me, has a keyed steering tube and stem.

Anyone have any ideas on how to remove the sleeve over the steering tube without damaging the steerer?

Bike is a 2010 Novara Safari, replacing the keyed stem with a threadless riser and adjustable stem.

My Novara Safari was stolen today at Franconia Metro in Alexandria VA near DC. Three years of commuting on that bike and as a 2006 model no hope of replacing it. Ironically last night I just put a "Life is Good" sticker on the downtube.

Anyone out there have a line on another Safari? :)

Gear Talk / Front Rack for Novara Safari
« on: April 14, 2010, 01:28:06 pm »
Any other Safari riders out there have their bike fully racked? I have been using a bob and rear rack only but am now looking a front rack. I have tried the blackburn - which I had on two previous touring bikes, but it did not exactly fit very well.

Any other makes models you have found which work?

General Discussion / East Africa: Tanzania
« on: April 13, 2010, 07:48:50 pm »
Anyone have bike touring experience in East Africa or Tanzania? I am moving to Dar es Salaam this July and plan on touring by bike extensively.

I have spent a fair amount of time in Africa but have never had a chance to get out and bike tour. Looking forward to any tips.

Also, if anyone might be interested in touring Tanzania during 2010 - 2012 contact me via PM for my email address.

Cheers,
Brad

Gear Talk / Novara Safari Front Rack? and Fenders?
« on: August 26, 2008, 09:22:27 am »
I could not resist picking up the safari at $660, even though as my wife points out i have one ass and six bikes.

What front rack works with the disc brake and what fenders are any other safari riders using?

Thanks,
Brad

Gear Talk / Front Rack Problems on New Bike
« on: June 20, 2006, 08:19:10 pm »
I just bought a new touring bike, Trek 520. I also bought new racks because i sold my old touring bike and the racks went with it. I am having quite a time getting the front rack to line up straight with the wheel once i tighten it down. The rear is just a little off but i can live with that. Anyone know a good trick to make it so? My last bike did not have this issue when hanging the racks for some reason. I have a jandd low rider front rack.
