Gear Talk / Rain clothing?
« on: June 14, 2004, 03:29:39 am »
I've been commuting all winter in the south Puget Sound area and try as little as possible to wear rain gear.  My favorite combination has been a light wind jacket and wool tights and use a rain jacket only when it's really pouring.  The wool tights really surprised me, they're much better than synthetic in all conditions that I have experienced.  If I have to use rain pants I wear them only over bike shorts and try not to work up too much sweat.

Gear Talk / tires

I'm new to the touring scene having ridden mostly on racing oriented bikes.  What are the sweet tires for a touring bike?  Are any foldable?

General Discussion / Touring with a guitar

Has anyone toured with a guitar?  I know of a few musicians who have done musical bike tours but have not heard how they carried their instruments.  Is it possible without a trailer?
