Gear Talk / Ritchey Cyclocross Bike
« on: June 09, 2005, 07:39:39 pm »
Hi all!  I'll be doing some loaded touring in NYS in July and am considering a Ritchey Break-Away Cyclocross bike.  I've already got two road bikes (for racing, not touring) and need a 2nd cyclocross bike.  I also like the concept of the Break-Away for travel (cheaper than paying for a boxed bike).  Anyone with experience with this or another cross bike for touring?

Thanks a bunch!


General Discussion / What pump for loaded touring

Okay, this is a silly question, but I put air in my tires everyday using a floor pump at home.  I rarely ever get flats, and when I do, I use CO2.  I'm not a big fan of mini-pumps because they're not very effective.

So, here's my question.  I'm planning a 22 day tour (self-supported).  What do you all recommend for pumping my tires on a daily basis?  I can't imagine packing a floor pump.  If you use a mini-pump, do you have one with a gauge (like the Topeak)?  Any brand & model recommendations would be appreciated.
