There is a lot of good food for a dollar at the store we go to walmart all the time and I find a lot of good for that is very easy to make all you have to add is water maybe butter if you like of a little milk you can buy powder mike and only make what you need at any giving time.And oatmeal is another good morning meal to eat all finds of stuff that does not weight that much at all you can load up your bike and eat good too.I do like to try to eat one good meal if I can find a place on the road I like that meal to be the end of the day if I can and yes peanut butter and bread is good food too.This is what I will have on my trip to Maine in June 1 of 2014   this trip is about 1500-1800 miles one way.

Have you look at the Surly rear rack I have two of them on my other bicycles and love them they do cost a little but well worth it to me.About 135 dollards.

GPS & Digital Data Discussion / Re: PN-60

I also have the PN-60 great GPS for sure I would call them and let them tell you how to do it.I have called them on my PN-60 and they help me out.If you just send them an e-mail you may not hear from them at all.Calling is the best way.Do you still have the book that came with your pn-60 if so read and re read it.It may tell you how or do a search on the web some will know how.I hope this helps you out a little.

Gear Talk / Re: Opinions on refurbishing/re-equipping a 20-year old bike

Whit a 8 speed you can get a mountain bike drive train 22,32,42t chainring setup.With a 9 speed you can get a 22,32,44t chainring setup  either one is great I have both  I like the 11-32 cassette it just shifts better to me.With a 11-34 cassette it will shift ok but just not what I like but ever one is different so what I like you may not.I would also go with a salsa woodchipper 2 handllebar with friction shift only from velo-orange.I love old bicycles.And you have done the best you can for the frame now just get the best parts for her.I like shimano parts as well I use them as much as I can for a chain I like the SRAM PC 971 Chain - 9-Speed.I have just finish building my new Surly Big Dummy 2013 model with this drive train setup 11-32 cassette and 22,32,44t chainring running velo-orange friction shifters only with the salsa woodchipper 2 and just love it I am going on a trip to Bangor Maine in 2014 with this setup and yes my bike will be very heavy but with these gears it's easy to pedal even up hills.Hope this might help you a little.
