Looking for a used and cheap bar end shifter to use with my drumbrake on my tandem. THANKS!

Hmmm, plenty of good info. Maybe the drum...

I have a Santana Sovereign SE with the old style drum brake that threads on to the hub. I want to upgrade to a disc. Is there a disc brake that threads on to the hub like the old drum does or will I have to buy a new hub set up for a disc?

Thank you. Do you recommend a specific Koolstop pad over another?

Getting ready for a coast trip from SF to LA. Have a Santana Tandem with the stock V brakes. What are your suggestions for the best brake pads available to help stop the beast? I have an Arai Drum Brake that I CAN install but don't want to if I don't have to (weight).

Your suggestions?

My plan, then will be to arrive Saturday, stay the night and leave Sunday to try to avoid heavy congestion. THANKS!

Yes. We'll start from SF. Half Moon Bay the first night. New Brighton the second. Where exactly is Devils slide? Betwwen GGB and HFM or HMB and NB? Thanks!

Thanks Scott. Still unclear whether I will encounter Devils slide between GGB and Half Moon Bay or HMB and New Brighton? That'll tell me wether to leave Saturday or Sunday to avoid the crush as you suggest.

Getting excited. I retire in 3 weeks and my daughter is going to shift adjust so we can ride on T,W and TH's here to avoid the weekend crush and get in shape. YAHHHOOOOOOOOOOO!

Thanks! How far out of the way is the penninsula. I've ridden this six times but am taking my daughter this time who is a bit timid so I want avoid anger, hostility, close calls and worse and to make it as pleasurable as possible.

Thanks again CG

 >:( Well, thank you Scott for checking. If you know, how far from GG Bridge is this section? If we leave Saturday morning, would we encounter this the first day (saturday) or the second (Sunday)? 

We plan on making Half Moon Bay (short day) the first day and New Brighton the second and I don't remember where this portion of roadway is.

The horn blaring (and the finger) happened to me last time I rode that portion, but from a driver going North. Aren't some drivers ASSSHOLES! 

I hate this part of the ride. Going to do it again in June/July on a tandem with my daughter. Hence, low risk tolerance. Anybody know if this project had been completed? If not... can you offer alternate routes?
