MiniVelo Touring- Rack Help Needed
This is a cross post from the Touring forum.
I am helping a friend get into touring for the first time. She is wanting to tackle the Pacific Coast after she irons out some gear issues on our upcoming weekend tours. However, until now she has been using a back pack and I have been carrying the rest. She wants to get some racks and panniers for her bike.
We are both located in South Korea where mini-velos are pretty popular. However, touring is not so I am having a hard time finding suitable front and rear racks for her bike. Also, a lot of the information I have been able to find is not in English
Do any of the folder or minivelo people around here know of a product that can help us?
Also, what else would you consider doing to upgrade this bike if you were going to take it on tour? I am hopeful that we can find a set of Korean made fenders that will fit but I am just starting to research. Do you think those wheels are up to the challenge?
I am thinking she is going to need to drop her gear ratios a bit but I am not certain how best to do this because the smaller size wheels throw off everything I know about bicycle gearing.
Thanks ahead of time for all of your help!
