Gear Talk / Bike box / carrier
« on: December 02, 2012, 08:24:49 pm »
Hello all,

Can someone here recommend a descent, durable, and not too expensive bike box or carrier.  I need a box for my bike as I intend to cross the "pond" in the not too distant future.

Thank You.

Hello All,

Routes / Santa Barbara to San Diego 08-18-09 (tomorrow)

Can someone help me select a route from Santa Barbara to San Diego?  I am traveling tomorrow, and seek a safe route / map.

Please help!


Have been thinking about a tour into Russia via the Alaskan Bering Straight.  Does anyone know if it is possible to cycle from the South of Alaska to the Bering Straights area, and then boat or ferry across into Russia?  Am planning a RTW tour and seeking to minimize crossing the "ponds" with air travel.  I live in San Diego.

Any other suggestions are appreciated.

Thank you


Gear Talk / New Touring Bike (RTW)
« on: January 29, 2009, 11:34:03 pm »
Can anyone help select the right touring bike (model and make) for a RTW tour?  I know there are several bikes available, and I am an experienced rider, but selecting the BEST bike for long term touring is outside my pay-grade (if you will).  Any price. 

Please help!


PS:  The local bike shop wants to sell me a SLHT  Surly :)  Good Bike?

General Discussion / MB Touring
« on: January 02, 2009, 11:24:33 am »

My name is James and I have been contemplating a RTW bike tour and seek "hardware" advice.

Because I have owned and ridden mountain bikes for several years, like the mountain bike style, and feel comfortable on a MB compared to a roadie (have owned Trek and GT MB's), I would like to purchase a MB that would be right bike for touring RTW.  Does anyone recommend a particular model?  I do not want to have hardware problems on my trip  :)  Price:  3-4k
