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.)

Thinking about getting a GPS. Primary use would be seeing where I am, not making wrong turns, and knowing how far I am from destination. Recommendation?
