Gear Talk / Bike Consideration
« on: November 01, 2004, 10:32:50 pm »
I am considering the purchase of a Waterford Adventure Cycle Touring Bike, M Series 1900, with Ultegra components.  Does anyone own such a bike? If so, please share your thoughts as I would be anxious to read what you have experienced with this brand and model.

May the wind be at your back.

Gear Talk / Sleeping Bag Recommendation
« on: April 29, 2004, 01:41:33 am »
Following my retirement two years ago I took up road cycling.  This has now inspired me to look into touring.  My first tour will be the American Explorer this September and I eventually want to get into self-supported touring.  This leads me to my inquiry/question of sleeping bag recommendation.  I have done some research as to down vs. synthetic, mummy vs. semi-rectangular, cotton liner vs. silk liner, weight factors, and temperature range of all.  I surmise that the final decision is based upon personal preference, but what does the experienced touring cyclist recommend? Most, if not all, of my tours will probably be during the months of April through October.

You are on a tour and camping, are you worried about bicycle security?  If so, how does one go about securing your bike from would be thieves?
