Hello-I'm doing the TramsAm route starting June 20 from Astoria. I'm doing my own personal fundraiser with proceeds going to the Alzheimers Association. I am not part of an organized group just doing this on my own with my Sister and her husband as my SAG team. Not sure if this is what you are looking for but just giving you the information.Yes, this is exactly the kind of thing that interests me. Do you have a web page or blog explaining your connection to Alzheimer's? I know that MS will actually host a page for you to help you fund-raise. Is Alzheimer's the same way?
I'm on an 11,000 mile, 2 year ride to raise awareness for MDA. (Ride between the Stars) http://tjforrester.blogspot.com/I'm interested in the story behind what drives a person to do this kind of ride. I see that you're a lifelong adventurer, and your substantial blog answers my questions.
I might be indirectly in this category. Plan is a 2017 transam with efforts to raise funds to endow a scholarship in memory of my mother who had MS. Honestly I'm not very good nor comfortable asking for donations so I'm still working through my thoughts/plans on this.Unfortunately, I don't have experience with the logistics of setting this kind of thing up. Maybe someone at your bank could advise you on how to set up a proper 501c(3), so you could be a verified, tax-deductible charity. It always looks better to me on places like GoFundMe when someone has that verified status. I'm certain that you're sincere, of course. Your reluctance to solicit donations is proof enough. I think you'll find that people are astoundingly generous if you're the type that generally doesn't ask.
Good luck with your search... mark
His crank may be one of Shimano's "Trekking" cranks and, if so, would have 104/64 BCDs and take a 22T granny chainring. 22x36 with 700c wheels is 16.5 gear inches and you can't reasonably get any lower.I have a Surly Disk Trucker with 48-36-26 chainring and 11-36 cassette.
Comment on crankset. Your crank will almost certainly take a 24 tooth inner chainring. 74 mm bolt circle diameter. So you could change the 26 ring for a 24 tooth ring easily. $15 and 15 minutes. Little bit lower low gear. Probably won't make much if any difference. But it will be the lowest you can get with your current equipment.
