By far the most common item I have seen is 1 (not both :- ) work glove.I've seen one, not two, shoes several times along the road. I always wonder how that happens.
I was thinking about 70-90 miles per day, though that will obviously vary with terrain, etc.How experienced are you as a multi-day loaded bike tourist? That sounds like a very aggressive mileage schedule unless you have experience that tells you it's possible for you.
Since I masquerade as an engineer 40 hours a week, I have to concur.So did I before I retired and my recommendation was based on good engineering practice, not an assurance the bolt will fail if done the other way.
OTOH, it was easier to put my fenders inside, and didn't have any problem carrying too much weight across the country, so I doubt it matters. Just use some Locktite and snug the bolt down good.
Yea, I know the setup isn't ideal, but the question is can it actually be done with what I have.Can it be done? Yes, after a fashion, but I expect you will very quickly find it more of a chore than a pleasant adventure. Russ' response was a bit harsh but i agree with him completely.
Because I have nothing better to do, I decided to look up the temperature in Ohio in June. I picked Columbus since its in the middle of Ohio. The average low in Columbus is 61 degrees in June. Average high in June is 82 degrees.As a friend of mine is fond of saying; "climate is what you expect, weather is what you get". Averages are just that with the range being ±3 standard deviations.
In my experience, a 20 degree sleeping bag is overkill.No, a true 20 bag is not overkill even in the summer unless you are staying in the deep south and at low altitude. I've experienced low 30's temperatures in mid-June in Ohio and high altitude can produce low temperatures any time of year.
It's a long walk from CA to TN and back to save a few $ on gas. I'm not sure it's an appropriate comparison to the OP's situation.The comparison was apt. When you need the item and don't have the time to shop around or access to a lower price you pay the going price. The OP was away from his home LBS and needed the lock right then like I needed gas in CA. The fact it was available at as lower price elsewhere (like my TN gas) meant nothing at the time since it wasn't practical to get it at that price.
