Gear Talk / frame bag
« on: March 29, 2006, 10:22:24 pm »
I'm looking for a frame bag that fits on the inside of the main triangle of the bike.  I've seen the little triangular shaped  bags that fit under the top tube and seat tube but was looking for something a bit larger that hung under the top tube and went the lenth of it from the seat tube to the head tube.  I've seen a cyclist with this type of bag but have searched the web and found nothing.  Any suggestions?

Gear Talk / off road tires

It seems most of the tires mentioned under "tires"
are for road touring.  Can anyone mention any
ideal tires for a great divide tour.  If anyone has
ridden the great divide could you say what tires you
used and how many flats you had.  

Gear Talk / Great Divide Equipment
« on: January 09, 2004, 06:26:08 pm »
I'm planning on riding the great divide route this
summer and would like some feedback regarding
how I haul my supplies.  I plan on carrying
20-25lbs of supplies.  
If I just use a rear rack with panniers do you think
that would be too much weight for the rear wheel
over rough terrain.  Handling?
What about a rear rack/panniers and a handle bar
bag to put  5-8 or so pounds up front.  
A front and rear rack with panniers might be the
best but I don't want to spend the money on a front
rack and panniers and also don't want the extra
Anyone have experience with a rear (or front) wheel
failure while weighted down.  This is what I'm most
concerned with.  I ride a Mt. bike with Bontrager
Satelite wheels.
Thanks for the input!

Routes / NW U.S. to Alaska

Starting to plan a self supported ride from Spokane, WA area up to Faribanks, Alaska for this summer.  Any route recommendations would be appreciated.  Would like to go off-road but this may not be as easily done as in the US on the Great Divide so will settle for pavement.  There looks to be a few different road options leading up to and then after Prince George.  Any suggestins which would be better.  

Miles between services/towns?

Also, any recommendations on side trips, sweet singletrack riding, off road portions, must see attractions, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

And one more thing...any possible suggestions on getting back to the Seattle/Spokane area after ($$$), cruise ($$), hitchike, freighter??

Thanks in advance!
