Gear Talk / Re: How is this rim for my wheel building plan?

I too am looking at all the options for front and rear wheels so I checked robert beckmans' web site to see what he uses on his ultra high dollar touring machines. He also uses Sun rims 48 hole rear and 40 hole front with Phil Wood hubs.Velocity Dyad is another rim i am considering .glenn in phx

Gear Talk / Handlebar bag what to do ?
« on: June 10, 2008, 09:20:56 pm »
Folks, I'm at a bit of a stalemate My daughters bike is a cannondale t-2000 touring bike. We have equiped it with Surly front and rear Nice racks [sweet], a detours Bug on the top tube, and profile air strykes [for another riding position]. Our first choice is a handlebar bag [the detours shuttle] so she could take it off and on with some easy when we go shopping. I've got the minoura "T" accessory bracket but i cant really see anyway to mount it. the quick release bracket that detours uses will definetly not work on the handlebars so long as i have the air strykes on it. I have been researching rear trunks but have not come across any that are medium size and come with a should strap. any ideas out there will be appreciated glenn in phx

Gear Talk / Rollers and trainers
« on: January 04, 2008, 12:09:24 pm »
I've been riding a trainer for the past several years and have found that being able to change up the resistance (from the handlebars) along with shifting down to harder gears gives me the opportunity to vary my interval training which I believe has shown up when I ride on the street. just a thought glenn in phx

Ray I have been reading your journal and everything you wrote about your SF to LA tour. It is great thankyou so much for sharing it, it is so informative. I have been cycling for several years now and will be retiring this August or
Sept. I have been thinking about a tour since 1993 when I bought my Cannondale T-1000 which has been kept inside my house while I ride my Raliegh Comp GS. The time is growing closer to my tour I started purchasing my gear and paying close attention to everything I  read about what and what not to pack. My plan was to ride from Phx Az to San Diego up the coast to SF (family there) then up and over to Lake Tahoe (family there also) I was going to depart from Phx sometime in April to avoid the desert heat and maybe avoid the possiblity of extreme cold in the Tahoe area. I will be self supported. I have a Major Question. Am I making a Big Mistake on Traveling South to North? Are there bike lanes and shoulders both directions or are the bike lanes mainly for southbound traffic. Should I reconsider my starting point? Any and all imputs will be greatly appreciated. Glenn in Phx
