Southwest / Albuquerque to enchanted circle
« on: April 07, 2019, 12:10:59 am »
In the early stages of planning a short tour in September.   Starting in Albuquerque.  Take the Turquoise trail through Madrid to Santa Fe.  Then the High Road to Taos.  Loop the Enchanted Circle, then back to Albuquerque.  Perhaps a detour to Ojo Caliente on the way back.

Thinking to take about 10 days, which would make for 35 to 40 mile days.  Hope to mostly camp with a few nights in motels.

I am not finding much info on the web about touring in these areas.  Most of what I find is for road centuries along these routes.  perhaps I am not asking Mr Google the right questions.   I would love to find a travel blog of someone who has toured these routes.

Can anyone point me to some good info?

Gear Talk / Rim advice - dynamo build
« on: February 08, 2017, 12:25:27 am »

I have just purchased a Shutter Precision PD-8 dynamo hub.  My plan was to re-use my existing rim for the build, but now am wondering if I should use a wider rim.

My 2016 Novara Safari came with Vittoria Randonneur 700x48c tires on Alexrims MD19 rims.   I like the wide tires given the quality of the roads and paths I regularly ride on.   A 19mm rim seems a little bit narrow for a 48c tire.  Should I be looking for something wider?  Recommendations?
