Gear Talk / Pannier heel room
« on: February 20, 2006, 12:54:48 am »
I'm new to touring and am planning a cross country tour this summer. Right now trying to pick between panniers, BOB, or the nomad.  I'm leaning towards panniers, but am worried about heel clearance.  Is there generally a big problem with the heel hitting the pannier?  Will it matter that I am tall and have large feet?  Thanks

Gear Talk / Windsor Tourist? Is this a good bike?
« on: February 10, 2006, 05:52:52 pm »
I was wondering if anyone has heard or has experience a Windsor Tourist bike.  I need a bike on the "cheaper" side of touring bike costs for some loaded does this bike compare to others kinda close to its price, such as the trek 520, fuji touring, bianchi volpe, or novara safari?

Thanks for your help everyone

Routes / Midwest Routes
« on: February 10, 2008, 07:21:05 pm »
I'm looking for some official maps of good loops in the Midwest, especially in Iowa. All the official maps seem to avoid the cornfields of iowa :) I am definitely craving a trip, but need something that will take about a week or less (<500 miles).  

I know RAGBRAI is an option, but I'm needing a real TOUR and not a party. Thanks!

General Discussion / Is there anything such as cycling sunglasses?

I'm looking for a pair of sunglasses to wear probably everyday while on tour (road) this summer. Is there anything I need to know?  Is there a type of sunglasses just for cycling or does it really matter?  Unless I hear otherwise, I'm looking at maybe picking up a pair of wrap Bolle sunglasses.

General Discussion / Hygiene on tour

I'll be doing my first long tour (6 weeks) this summer and plan on camping at least 80-90% of the nights.  How do most of you bathe or shower while on tour?  I know it doesn't need to be everyday, but I don't want to pull into the final town smelling like i've been camping for 6 weeks. thanks
