Classifieds / Wanted: Blackburn B-52 Bottle Cage
« on: April 25, 2005, 10:25:09 pm »
Blackburn used to make the B-52 Bomber Water Bottle Cage, which fits on a normal bottle cage mounting holes, but is large enough to hold a 1.5 liter water bottle.  They've been discontinued for years, but if you have one for sale that still has the rubber strap that hold the bottle on, I'm interested.  Name your price!

Routes / through Wash state/ BC any route suggestions?

Here's how I'd recommend getting from Seattle to Vancouver:

From Seattle, take the ferry to Bainbridge Island, then ride up to Port Angeles (stopping at Oak Table Cafe in Sequim for their excellent 49'er flapjacks).  You can climb up Hurricane Ridge (about 35 miles round trip, 5000' elevation gain), if you want a nice view and a good workout.

From Port Angeles, take the ferry to Victoria. Then ride the north on the Lochside trail. You can ferry back to BC at Tswassen, or ride further north on Vancouver Island to Nanaimo before taking a ferry back to the mainland.

I have Ortlieb bike packers, which have been in use now for 7+ years.  They have never leaked.  They are fabulous!  I also have the ortlieb roller bags for the front, but only use them for loaded touring. FYI, I live in seattle, so these bags have been through lots of rain.  Definitely worth every penny.

Thanks Dave.  That confirms what I've been able to research so far.

Any one know which provider has the best service on the Pacific Coast?  In particular, Oregon and northern California.  Any comments on your experiences (good or bad) appreciated.  thanks.
