Gear Talk / carbon fork or steel?
« on: June 03, 2010, 06:38:23 am »
I'm building up a 29er for ultra light touring.  I wondered folks opinions about carbon forks vs steel for this type of use.  Thanks. 

General Discussion / Youth tour on bamboo bikes
« on: May 18, 2010, 06:18:39 pm »
Next month I am taking a group of students from DC to Pittsburgh.  We want to tour on bamboo bikes that we make ourselves over the next 5 weeks.  We are in need of about 5 late model damaged frames from which we will cut the dropouts, bottom bracket and head tubes.  Why late model?  B/c I want the kids to have descent bikes to keep when they are done with our 9 day tour.  Touring frames or mtn bike frames with disc brake ready rear drop outs would be awesome! 

Our group of 12 is about 75% low income and first generation college bound.  They are good students and first time cyclists.  If you have any suggestions please let me know... thanks,
