Classifieds / Keen bike sandals - 11.5
« on: May 04, 2011, 02:34:38 pm »
I got these last summer, and barely used them. this summer it seems that they don't fit my feet as well as they did last summer when i bought them, so i would like to sell them since im just going to go with my pearl izumi x-alps. these shoes are great for commuting. the cleats are recessed enough that i almost never hear them click while im walking around.

they were originally yellow and black, but i thought the yellow looked tacky, so i blacked out the uppers as much as possible. i think they look much better this way.

i would like $60 shipped for them ($70 if you would like the used crankbrother cleats to come with them)

pictures are here:

Gear Talk / I need lower gears!
« on: May 03, 2010, 12:29:14 pm »
so, ive been training for a tour and im handling the distances well (50-60 mile training rides) but i can't seem to tackle this one hilly area near my place that has 8-10% grades (maybe even steeper). i have a 80's centurion Lemans with a triple front (48,38,32) and a 6-speed rear (14-28). i think if i could get a larger rear gearing or a small front chainring so i could get a 1:1 ratio maybe even a 28 on the front and a 30 on the back, i think i would be fine.

Does anyone know where i could get these from, or am i asking for something that doesn't exist?

Gear Talk / handlebar bags for DSLR's?
« on: March 31, 2010, 06:15:50 pm »
i was wondering if anyone had any opinions on a good handlebar bag that's just big enough to carry a DSLR camera with a normal sized lens on it (Pentax K100D w/ PENTAX-DA 18-55mm lens)? the only camera bag I've found is the Sunlite camera sport bag, and i can't find a photo of the inner compartment anywhere on the internet.

Im wanting one kinda quickly so i can use it on a ride in two weeks...

General Discussion / advice for setting my bike up for touring
« on: February 16, 2010, 11:02:22 am »
my bike is an old centurion Lemans 12, 62cm, which is a little on the large side for me, but i like it that way. I bought it with most of the stuff already on it. it has a salsa bell-lap bar, suntour bar-end shifters, a titanium brooks B17, and some 35cc panaracer urban max tires on 36-spoke shimano rims. The gearing is currently a 12-speed, but i can make it a 18 speed if i add a 28 tooth front sprocket for climbing. I added some fenders, lights, and a GPS mount for my garmin geko. what i don't like is the very aged derailleurs and cables, and the weak side-pull brakes. i really want this to be a rock-solid touring bike where i don't have to worry about having to fix anything but a flat mid-tour.

i was wondering if i could get some advice on thing that i should add or upgrade so that its capable of running smoothly for 300-400 mile trips (~40 miles a day) and touring comfortably in some very hilly terrain (with dirt roads too). I live in Fort Collins, CO and im going to be riding through rocky mountain NP and poudre canyon this summer, and maybe doing the utah cliffs loop too.

Also, any recommendations on a rear rack that will fit my bike well. The bike doesn't really have any way to connect the rack at the top near the seat. i can drill and tap holes, but i would rather avoid that if possible.

some pictures for reference, large to show detail:

Rocky Mountain / utah cliffs loop
« on: February 14, 2010, 10:39:51 pm »
hi, i was wondering if anyone had a better map showing the general outline of the utah cliffs loop. the one online is kinda small and doesn't show anything except the major roads.
