Seeking a good used touring bike, small size. 50 cm.  
frame or smaller (smaller would be better). Please  
e-mail me at anniebikes@mchsi.com  
I  really want to try loaded touring but a new
bike is out of reach right now. So if anyone has one  
not being used, please let me know. I'll take good
care of it, I promise! Thanks!!!!!

Small touring bike.  Try your local bike shop.  The new models are here and last year's models need to go.  Sometimes there can be a good savings this way.  Also ask them if they know of someone who is thinking about up grading their bike to a new one.  The old one maybe for sale.

Annie,

My friend's mother is ready to sell her bike - she is very petite - and it's set up for touring. She did several cross-country trips. I just saw them 2 weeks ago. She lives in Florida, but was going to let my friend take the bike to sell it - he lives in Pennsylvania.

I will ask him about it and post again here w/ info. Don't know what the price would be.

Sorry Annie,
My friend's Mom is having a hard time giving up on her biking and her bike! She's 79 in years, but 17 in spirit, and is enjoying the wonders of new drugs... so she has decided to keep her bike after all. Good luck to you!

Thanks, anyway! I think it is cool that a 79 year old
person wants to keep her bike and continue to ride!
Good on her! I'll find a bike one of these days.....

If my 55 year old cranium were to be opened there would be found a 21 year old asking "what the heck happened." If I'm blessed I'LL be riding when I'm 79!!!  What an awesome little story!!!  Enjoy the voyage......Mark of the Dalton Boys

Hey, I don't need that small touring bike anymore..... I've gone with a BOB trailer than I can use on the bike I already have. And I am liking BOB very much. We're becoming good friends. I even talk to him on hills sometimes..... is that a little odd?? :-) He slows me down but he has everything I need.

Congratulations on the BoB aquisition!!! I talk to mine too.....when climbing, and descending, on flats I tend to take it for granted - and I'm working on that. Two pieces of advice...use the flag, and really read the owners manual. Enjoy the voyage.....Mark of the Dalton Boys

Thanks for the advice, Mark of the Dalton boys. I am using the flag, for sure. I prefer being seen to not! And I've read the manual. Still, reading is one thing. Experience is better.Two more weeks and I'll be off for a week of riding with BOB, probably about 500 miles. I better be ready by then.

Thanks again for the advice and encouragement you pass on by your enthusiasm.
