Routes / Emory Pass - Southern Tier
« on: August 24, 2005, 06:33:32 pm »
We haven't ridden it but did follow the maps driving from San Antonio to San Diego at the end of an auto trip in March. IMMSMC you would have to cut south somewhere west of Silver City and ride the Interstate from there to El Paso to avoid the pass. Much of the route is Interstate anyway. We had planned to ride it this fall but our riding buddies can't get away before mid-Oct so we'll do the West Coast instead.

I googled up a couple of diaries of people who have ridden the ST but no longer have them. You should be able to do the same. My concern is finding water along that route. People have obviously done it and survived but there are long stretches between water sources.


General Discussion / Tire Liners for Puncture Protection

We tried the MrT's for a year or so and found they eventually sliced our tubes where the end of the liner lays against the tube. I suppose we had movement at that point each time it came to the bottom and was compressed slightly. Breaking the tires down periodically and moving the belts a few inches stopped the problem but we find the Schwalbe and Avocet kevlar belted tires protect just as well with less hassle.
