General Discussion / sequoia for loaded touring
« on: August 26, 2005, 07:19:01 pm »
Thanks for the advice.  I put 35 mm tires on the bike.  I found a pair of carradice lippett panniers for the front.  I have used it for a loaded tour and credit card tour.  It is a good bike for all around riding.  Not great at any one thing but useful for most.  I also changed the front chainrings to be the same as the bruce gordon set up.  Erin

Hi,  I am still in the dreaming and training stage.  I have a mountain bike and the sequoia.  I use the sequoia for events and the mountain bike for commuting to work.  My longest distance ride is 40 miles. I hope to do a metric century by the end of august and an 80 in October.  I some gear but mostly just the day to day riding stuff.  Shorts, hydration pack, kid trailer, jerserys, helmet, etc.  I don't have any touring specific stuff yet, ie tent, sleeping bag, etc.  Any suggestions on where to get the best stuff for a good price?  How did you figure out what the best gear was?  Thanks, Erin

thanks for replying.  I know after having cycled for a couple hundred miles on it that the gearing is way to high for hills.  I live in Kansas and I have am in the lowest granny gear and still could use more.  I think  I will just use this bike as an event bike and light touring/credit card touring for awhile.  then I want to get a Bruce Gordon BLT for my touring bike.  First I want to see if I can do and like touring.  I also asked specialized about using the sequouia for touring and they were concerned about the brake system not being strong enough.  So I definitely agree with you.  How much was your touring bike, where did you get it?  and would you buy it again or do you have another recommendation.  Thanks again for the tips.

Hi,  I just bought a specialized sequoia sport and I was wondering if it could be used for loaded touring if it pulled a BOB or similar trailer?  I know it is great for light touring.  thanks for your help.
