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.

Gear Talk / Panniers and Lightweight System Bags
« on: November 04, 2011, 10:08:37 pm »
Tried on another list to get recommendations of combination panniers and lightweight (rackless) system. Had a lot of referrals of lightweight systems, but no combination system as I want.

Problems with setups seen so far,

Not combination system, two panniers plus equivalent of two more panniers in lightweight (rackless) bags, which is what I want.
For mountain biking, rather than primarily road biking.
Include a backpack.
Not for extended fully loaded touring, camp, cook, weeks or months.
Include DIY (home made) items, which I am not interested.

Would would be best to start, panniers on front or back; my panniers will mount either place.
Then, what lightweight bags to add?

(Be interested in any problems with lightweight systems (many seem to make bike very top heavy.)
