Hi All,

I just listed my Arkel GT-54 set complete with rain covers and shoulder strap on eBay. If anyone is interested, the eBay page is:

I chose to do it this way because everyone gets "Buyer Protection" and you get to see my eBay history (100%) so the transaction should feel better all around.

I started the price at $225 for the panniers, covers and strap.

These were used only for one trip from South Florida to St Augustine then for a trip on the GAP from Pittsburgh to Cumberland and back. Total of about 600 miles on them. Never in the rain without the covers.

They are in GREAT shape.

Sell via PayPal only and ship ONLY to the USA.

I also have a similarly great shape Arkel Handlebar bag and an unused Arkel Tailrider Trunk Bag I'll be listing soon.

THanks Guys!
I apprecite the info!

Fred, what model of Lake do you use? I see a lot of different ones.
Dave, WOW, I really appreciate the Frog info! I was off the bike for 3 months due to a "water on the knee" issue that ended up being an internal injury and the "water" being old blood, yech) so I now know I MUST have the rotation/float for my knees so I will have to have the Frogs.

I was looking into more of an MTB style shoe; like the Shimano 034, 038 and the 021 but will try to find the 092.. Problem is that the LBS's have zip for touring and that 092 is a touring specific shoe. cool (if I can try one on!)

Thanks again! great info!

HI All,

Newbie here so be gentle!
I am new to touring and have a question about shoe stuff; I use Sidi road shoes and Speedplay on my Kestrel but for my new touring bike I obviously wwant to be able to get off and WALK! ;)
What do most folks do? Clipless? old toe clips? Nada? What kind/style of shoes? MTB style? I LOVE my Speedplay (knee issues) and IF I was going to use clipless I would want to use the Speedplay Frogs but, like I said, I want to be able to walk, easily, with whatever I use. Can you really walk well in the MTB shoes??? I am unfamiliar with using the MTB style shoes on a bike so can you guys who have done a lot of road touring tell me the good, bad and the ugly of my options?
Thanks MUCHO

Routes / Florida East Coast

I am interested in riding from somewhere around Miami north to St. Augustine along the coast in FLorida this spring. Adventure Cycling doesn't even go there in the guides! I know there is a lot of traffic but I had some questions I was hoping someone could answer.

Are most of the traffic problems below, say, Palm Beach or Ft. Lauderdale? is it a good ride north of Palm Beach County?

Anyone have any experience in this area?

Many Thanks,
