Planning a short trip on part of the Southern Tier, westbound, roughly from Tallahassee to St. Francisville.  Looking at maps and wondering if anyone has any experience deviating south of Elgin AFB and riding through Panama City, through Destin, and getting back on-route in Pensacola.

Suspecting hoards of beach traffic and general unpleasantness, and suspecting we'd be smart to stay on-route, but we have an opportunity to stay near Destin and want to make sure we wouldn't miss neat things out on the coast.

Thanks very much for any thoughts!


Gear Talk / Thoughts on 2011 Salsa Fargo Complete bike build?
« on: October 25, 2010, 02:27:55 pm »
I've been anxiously looking forward to being able to order a 2011 Salsa Fargo, akin to this:

Anyways, the 2011's are on their website now:

And the complete bike builds are now with SRAM 10-speed APEX with 27/40T front and 12-36T rear.  Interestingly ;) not a triple on the front, and only 40T up there.  I plan to use the bike for lots of stuff, including road trips and am afraid this might be a little slow. The 2010's had Shimano XT 26/36/48T front and 11-34T rear.

Thoughts?  Opinions on other parts of this build?


Classifieds / WTB: 58-60cm touring bike

Hey all,

Looking for a 58-60cm touring bike.  I'm 6'2" but shorter on the legs.  Salsa Fargo, Kona Sutra, Surly LHT; something like that.  Been on a couple of trips on my Specialized Allez and think it's time for a better suited bike. 

Located in SC.
