Gear Talk / LHT with 26 Inch Wheels?
« on: February 27, 2016, 08:34:41 pm »
I am looking at the LHT but they only sell the bike with 26 inch wheels in the 50cm size.  I wonder if the smaller wheels will affect me riding mostly paved but also some gravel and single track routes.  Can I put 700cc wheels on this bike?

Also, it appears the stem changes very much between the 50cm and 52 cm bike.  How will this affect me?

Also, bar end shifters would be a disaster for my riding style.  What other shifter/brake system could I put on a smaller LHT?

Also, what is a good alternative to this bike?

Here is the link to the LHT site.

Cycling Events / Trying Out For Ranger for Pacific Route

I am really excited to be part of this forum and in advancing the cause of cycling for all people.  I applied to the Blackburn Design program #beablackburnranger2016.  As I understand it, Blackburn Design supports this organization.  I certainly do.  I am really excited about the challenge and if chosen, hope I can live up to it.  This is a huge trip for me!  I have a video for anyone who is interested.

Cycling is part of my life.  We have made great strides to create cycling safe areas in Colorado, though there is a lot more to do.  We have several trails which allow people to ride near the edge of wilderness trails, and to see the magic of the out of doors.

I hope this is a good introduction.  I would love your comments and feedback about the Pacific trail and the GDMTBR route, which is my second choice route.  Thanks, Tim
