Gear Talk / Burley vs Bob on road tour
« on: July 18, 2004, 08:47:12 pm »
Dear List'izens,
We rode the TransAm in 2002 on a tandem with panniers and a Bob.  The trailer worked well.  But the load on the rear wheel of the tandem contributed to a rim failure, among other problems.  So we're thinking about switching to a Burley Nomad for our next big tour.  The Nomad's two wheels carry 90% of the weight of the trailer, decreased the stress on the tandem's rear wheel.
Anyone have experience touring with a Nomad?  Any problems with the right Nomad wheel dropping off the pavement?

Routes / Getting out of airports on a bike

Dear Listizens,
We're planning a holiday in England and Wales in June.  Flying into Heathrow.  Any advice on getting out of Heathrow by bicycle?  And specifically from Heathrow to Guildford?
And, more generally, any good web sites on getting out of airports by bicycle?

General Discussion / Touring videos for training

With indoor training, the scenery doesn't change.  What would make it more interesting would be videos taken from a touring bicycle (or something going that speed).
Does anyone know of any such?
If not, might be a niche Adventure Cycling could fill.
