Classifieds / FOR SALE: Shogun Bicycle
« on: September 21, 2013, 06:55:53 pm »
Shogun Katana, 58cm c-to-c, made in Japan with lugged Tange tubing. Twelve speed, Shimano 105-Exage components. 700x25c tires. All components have been checked out to work well. Weight as shown apprx 23 lb. Very nice clean condition, except for rubs from transporting on one side of top tube. This could probably be color matched in oil enamel by a paint store and touched up to have frame be just about perfect. Vetta cyclometer included needs battery; should work, but no guarantee of its operation. $200 plus $25 for professional packing plus cost of shipping. More photographs on request.

Optional, highly rated Specialized Turbo 700x26c new tire for this bike, $15. Photo on request.

Size M (minor repair should not be noticed), for cost of shipping. Prefer someone who buys from my sell list, so I get something for pedaling eight miles to post office, but not a requirement.

Gear Talk / Trailer Plus Bags
« on: April 14, 2013, 03:08:31 pm »
In perusing photos I took of other touring bicyclists I met following Northern Tier I noticed all the cyclists with trailers also had bags on bike, ranging from four panniers on down. Not saying should use trailer, or if use trailer need also bags on bike. Just saying if you are thinking of using a trailer, all the cyclists I saw on trip had bags on bike in addition to trailer.

Gear Talk / Trek 520 vs Cannondale T1 or T2
« on: January 27, 2012, 02:05:11 pm »
Interested in feedback from anyone who has touring experience with recent models of both, to compare. Not interested in components, advantages of repairing steel over aluminum, choices in other brands, etc. Just these two, differences in handling and ride. (Yes, I know Cannondale has discontinued touring models for now.) Thanks.
