Gear Talk / Bike Mirror
« on: December 15, 2011, 11:17:14 am »
I'm having trouble deciding on a bike mirror to get.  I leave on the ST in a little under a month and a mirror is basically all I have left to get.  The mirror that attaches to the top of the handlebar doesn't work with my bike because it has no gap for it.  The bar end mirror could work but doesn't seem like it would work that well but I've never used it so I'm not positive.  I looked at one that attaches to sunglasses but again not sure.  Please let me know if you have any ideas or experience!  Thanks!

General Discussion / Why is it so difficult to find front racks?

Does anyone have any helpful info on where to get relatively cheap front racks to hold panniers?  It seems like all I can ever find is a rear rack :(

Routes / Best way (cheapest) to get bike and gear to the route start

I plan on leaving St. Augustine right around January 10th and am trying to decide the best way to get all of my stuff there.  I will be leaving from the RI area.  I found a cheap plane ticket, but what's the best way for the bike?  Thanks for the help!

Hey everyone,

I am planning on doing a solo trip (although a friend may accompany on a moped or scooter) alone the Southern Route from St. Augustine to San Diego.  I plan on leaving in early January and am worried about some weather along the way.  Most notably the mountain ride in Texas/New Mexico.  Please help with any suggestions or comments!  Also, I currently have a Wellington 1.0 road bike and hope that is good enough.  I have been looking at getting gator skin tires or marathon pluses.  Any thoughts would be much appreciated! 

One last note, any ideas on housing/camping.  I'm hoping to not have to camp outside very often but obviously don't want to go broke either!  Thanks!!
