I am looking for opinions on mounting 4 Ortlieb Water bottle cages on my Ortlieb classic Back roll panniers (front and rear) .. I purchased the cages to carry extra water when I might need to. I was using a 100oz camelback .. But the combined weight on my back (15-18 lbs.)seemed to (maybe) contribute to more saddle discomfort ... That being said I ol was thinking about mounting 2 bottle cages on each of the front panniers .. Each cage carries 25 ounces of water weighing approximately 1 lb 12 oz. so I would be increasing each front panniers by about 3 lbs. 8 oz (if my math is right) . I could mount a single water bottle cage on each pannier .. Thoughts please .. Thanks Glenn

Gear Talk / Grand Trunk Bamboo Sleeping Bag Liner

I was wondering if anyone out there has used one of these or knows of anyone who may have used one .. I am thinking of pairing  it with a Montbell Super Sprial 30* Down bag and since the Montell boasts of "stretching" I didnt want to get a liner that would defeat the ability of the bag to stretch .. thanks Glenn

Gear Talk / Handlebar bag what to do ?
« on: June 10, 2008, 09:20:56 pm »
Folks, I'm at a bit of a stalemate My daughters bike is a cannondale t-2000 touring bike. We have equiped it with Surly front and rear Nice racks [sweet], a detours Bug on the top tube, and profile air strykes [for another riding position]. Our first choice is a handlebar bag [the detours shuttle] so she could take it off and on with some easy when we go shopping. I've got the minoura "T" accessory bracket but i cant really see anyway to mount it. the quick release bracket that detours uses will definetly not work on the handlebars so long as i have the air strykes on it. I have been researching rear trunks but have not come across any that are medium size and come with a should strap. any ideas out there will be appreciated glenn in phx
