General Discussion / Saddle bags
« on: September 30, 2013, 09:22:12 pm »
Hey guys so I plan on biking across Canada next summer and I was just wondering what a good size is for saddle bags. I'm going to be camping most of the way so they have to be big enough to hold all my gear any suggestions?


General Discussion / Choosing a bike and could use advice
« on: June 04, 2013, 09:32:45 pm »
Hey guys I've been looking into picking up a used bike to tour with but I don't know exactly what I would need to do a tour across Canada. As I don't have a ton of money to spend on a shiny new bike I've been contemplating picking up an older bike and changing a couple components.

This is the bike I've been considering and I was hoping for a little input before buying it. I've done quite a bit of research on the model and components but I've come up rather empty. Does anyone know if this bike would suit my needs? Or will I end up high and dry beside the road 1000 km's in?

Thanks for the help guys

Thanks for your time
