General Discussion / Trailer Preferences
« on: February 24, 2005, 12:11:12 am »
I am doing short trips with the BOB over 4 to 6 days each and it has rewarded me with points of improvement. First lesson was to remove unnecessary items. Look at everything bulky even if it's light. When the bag is at or below the BOB frame (as reccommended) the handling is greatly improved. It trailers very quietly.
Compared to panniers (front) the BOB is not slowed by head winds. As to one wheel at least I know when I miss a hole or bump, the trailer should also. Not so with two wheels back there. The trial period will better prepare me for the TransAM.

General Discussion / Trans-Am questions

I am looking forward to using Adventure Cycling's Trans-Am maps East to West. In signing on with the group, my question is: Am I to assume that each map that will cover apporximate 40 miles, be that days distance? I'd like to have a better feel for easy days and tough slow climbing days to know where I'll be.
