Gear Talk / wheel question: Hubs LX or 105?
« on: July 13, 2004, 06:36:16 am »

While building up my ultimate tourer, I'm shopping around for
700c wheels and am trying to decide between a custom built
front/rear wheels with a Mavic A719/LX combination, or a
slightly less expensive A719/105 combo.

I will probably be touring through SE Asia on these wheels
and want something reliable and bombproof.

Anyone out there have any experiences touring on 105's?
Any information would be appreciated...



Gear Talk / durable and wide touring tire for 700c?
« on: July 12, 2004, 09:26:56 pm »

I'm planning a self-supported tour through South Asia, and
will be taking a Surly Cross-Check with 700c wheels.

I'm trying to find a decent set of tires for this and was
wondering if anyone knew of any out there? I've heard mixed
things about the Conti Top Touring 2000's and some things
about the Schwalbe Marathons. Can anyone suggest some
good resilient tires that would stand up to many miles and

Also I'm thinking somewhere in the width of 40c, or even
higher since the Cross Check takes tires up to 45c with room
to spare.

Any suggestions?

thank you,
