Gear Talk / Aero Bars

Russell...thanks for the links.  Those are the good type of nick-nacks that are hard to come by in my LBS and that you can only find online.
I especially like the swing grip and the Profile Design Computer mount.  
Dave..The PVC sounds like an option as well.  I think I'm going to get a Profile Century this weekend and play around with it to see what works.  I do have a light, bell and wireless computer that I need to find suitable homes for.

Here are a couple more questions that I was curious about...
My flat bar is a riser bar (not sure what the technical  term is)and it curves up a bit on either side of the stem.  Is this going to stop me all together from  mounting aero bars?

Also, a handlebar bag would still be nice to have...
have any of you rigged a handlebar bag under your aero bars?

Thanks again...hope all of you are out riding and enjoying spring!

JohnLee & Russell..
Thank you so much for the replies.  I did check out a set of the Profile Cenury's but the guy thought that they would be too big a diameter for my flat bars.
Maybe I'll give them a shot.  
JohnLee, I'm especially curious about how you rigged your aero bars with that cross bar.  Do you have any pics?  I was wondering where I was going to put my computer, light, bell, etc! That could work...

Thanks again

I'm looking to put aero bars on my newly acquired touring bike.  I have it set up with flat bars.
Any suggestions on what brand/style I could use?
What about the flat bar diameter...or are aero bars
universal for flat and drop bars?

Gear Talk / 26" vs. 700c
« on: February 12, 2004, 08:07:25 pm »
Hello All,
I'm new to touring and hope to purchase a bike soon.   A big decision seems to be in tire/rim size.  When traveling, whether in the states or in India, what would be the best bet for finding a replacement?  Also, any suggestions on a bike? I've been looking at the trek 520 (700c only)or the BG BLT(26" or 700c).
Many Thanks,

Thanks for the link.  I will check that out.
Thanks for the heads up on Hwy 19.
I tried looking all over the link you suggested but could not find any maps pertaining to self-guided touring.  I would love to see those...could you give me more specifics on how to find it.
We will be heading to Tofino.  I have heard really good things about that reagion.  
How is camping on the island?  Do you recommend trying to do the whole island in just two weeks?
I've heard that there is not many bikable roads north of the Columbia river area.  Do you know anything about this?
Thanks for letting me pick your brain.

My girlfriend and I have roughly two weeks of vacation and we want to head out to Vancouver Island towards the end of August, beginning of September.
I would love to hear any and all recommendations about
biking the island.  I have only been to Victoria, but hear that the rest of the island is absolutely beautiful.
We will be self supported and don't have a set schedule.
Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance,
