General Discussion / Camping after Labor Day - Northern Tier
« on: August 01, 2011, 11:19:44 am »
Hi all,

My wife and I are headed to Maine from Chicago starting Sept 2nd. I have read that camping "might" be tougher this time of year? Do I really need to worry and call in advance?



Gear Talk / Salsa Fargo "on the road"?
« on: June 19, 2011, 08:48:03 am »
Hello everyone,

Charlie here in Chicago.

Anybody have any real world experience touring on a Salsa Fargo? I'm a 47 year old cyclist and have toured on a traditional touring bike, a mountain bike etc in the past 30 years or so. I like the "do-all" idea of the Salsa but wonder how it really might fair as a loaded road rig?

My wife and I are headed to Maine (via northern tier, mostly) and then down to Boston this fall, and I have a chance for a great deal on a Fargo. I am quite familiar with the pros and cons of all this but if you own one, and have done 1000 miles or so of road touring I would love to hear your experience both good and bad.

Thanks in advance.
