    Do you think there is much difference between the wire/TravelStar compound and the Endurance on the folding beads? I can't seem to find the folding beads, except for international sites (I'm in the...

    Topeak Masterblaster or Zefal HPX mounted under the TT or seat stay. I've used mini pumps like the Lezyne Alloy Drive, but after 2-3 flats, arms start cramping up from all the strokes. I'm a...

    Are there other heat treated frames for the same price point? I thought most steel frames in the $4-600 range aren't heat treated. The frame rides great either way though.

    I'd take my Big Dummy touring without a second thought. But that Bullit looks AWESOME!! I wouldn't mind one of those, either.

    Nice. Was getting the couplers installed a more economical option than selling the frames and getting a Trucker Deluxe?

    Are you stuck on 26" wheels? My main road/dirt ride is shod with Pacenti 650b rims and XT rear hub. Pretty light, especially when coupled with 650 x 42 Grand Bois Hetre tires. So plush and light. I...
  9. 26x2.0 "off-road" tires: Marathon Plus Tour vs Mondial

    I'm looking to pick up a pair of 26x2.0 rugged tires for both on and off-pavement rides. I came across these two Schwalbe tires, but I've no personal experience with either tire. I have had the...

    Old topic. Itstimothy - Did you end up trying the RnR's? I've got some RnR's, but don't have a NB frame to put it on to check clearance.

    Nice job. I haven't done a double yet, but several centuries. I train/ride on 47x17, but for the centuries, I gear down to 48x18. I am, unfortunately, still on the hunt for a good saddle. I'm...

    Frame with 32+ tire clearance

    Looking at *new* SS frames with 32+ tire clearance. Ones I can think of are:

    Surly Steamroller
    All City Big Block
    Kona Paddywagon (?)

    Any others I'm missing? I've got a Wabi that's supposed...

    You guys are right--I can remember one time I actually stopped and flipped the wheel for a big climb. Haven't done it since. I still leave the cog on there, though, just in case I mess something up...

    Bklyn - Hey, are you sure you've got the right elevation map?

    According to this, you're looking at about 3k ft for the 100 miler.

    I usually do centuries on 48x18, but I usually have between 2,500 and 7,000 ft climbing. Given that total gain is only 838ft, you should be fine with 48x17. Good luck.

    What's your Flop side gearing?

    This is more directed at distance FG riders. I am curious what your gearing is on the flop side (if applicable). Currently, I ride 48x18 and have a 17T on the other side (sometimes 16T). I know...

    Yes, slightly heavier due to lugs. Really, it's just for the "classic" look, as bowzette mentioned. Just personal preference. And a little bit of weight on the frame really doesn't slow you down,...

    I've had the Steamroller and Wabi. For rough country roads and urban abuse, the Steamroller was built a bit tougher and with more tire clearance. It was a little hefty, though. For longer road rides...

    I don't have an SE, but I love my Classic. I've done several centuries on it and plan on a double this year. Only complaint is I wish there was just a little more tire clearance to run 32-33's.

    Ah, didn't realize that. Guess that explains it. :D



    From what Richard told me, it is the new version with bigger clearance but doesn't have the hidden fender mounts.

    I'm fortunate enough to have multiple nice bikes, but if I were on a budget, I really wouldn't mind getting something like my '83 Trek 500. Frame for $40 and built the rest up for $150.
