    Maybe if there were some really lightweight pop-up camper design. I'm sure something could be made out of a two wheeled trailer.

    I have a Cierra Professional 5000. As you've found, there is basically no information available on them. You can check the Classic and Vintage forum and see if there's anything from the past couple...

    Sadly, I cannot click on the bottom right youtube linky thing. There's some big ad in the way. I can't even see the right half of the video. Would you mind throwing a link in the original post so...

    Not everyone likes to wear the silly shorts. Some like a bike that they can just ride normally without the need for special clothing.

    I can't be particularly helpful, but a friend who rides regular Brooks seats recently picked up a Cambium. He said his ass was a little sore after the first couple rides, but he got used to it rather...

    Did they stop making Hypers??? I'll have to look into it and maybe stock up. If nothing else, you can still find them online.

    Edit: Hypers are still on their website, so hopefully they're still...

    Look into Velocity Dyads. I'm pretty close to your weight and gear/bike weight and researched this about a year ago when looking to build a set of wheels that were light-ish, but still stout enough...

    Tourist in MSN, that's awesome. I might be copying you there. I carry 550lb para-cord anyway, and I think you could also tie it through the bike's current chain. Basically I'd just be adding the...

    For the most part I agree, but you could save on some things. You can likely save taking rain gear. ...Or at least I wouldn't do a short, weekend tour on a rainy weekend. I also wouldn't feel the...

    If you're only doing long weekend type trips, you won't need much room.* I have a pair of Axiom Monsoons that are 35L. Those have proven themselves waterproof in multiple days of riding in rain. I...

    I, too, love my Vittoria Hypers. Of course it's all about what you want out of the tire, but if you're going for a nice riding tire vs. an ultra puncture resistant - practically feels like riding...

    What information are you trying to get at? I'm just over 30, but toured with several folks younger than me going down the US Pacific coast. Does that help at all?

    I think there may be more to this than just the material. I too have crashed several of both aluminum and steel forks. The only one to ever sustain damage was steel. I think that has more to do with...

    I don't carry more than 10-15lbs in the front bags, and I only weigh ~145lbs, so I don't think I'm going to stress a fork beyond it's capabilities.

    Thanks, Lee.


    Just never used those before and hadn't thought of it. Proper mounts would be nice, but that could be an option. Thanks!

    I agree of course that steel forks have a smoother ride than AL, but I think it matter much less on a touring bike with wider tires. I just finished a tour on 700x35c tires on an all AL bike and the...

    Steel forks are quite heavy compared to AL. I have considered fitting an aftermarket fork with rack mounts to an AL MTB frame. For that purpose too, it would be nice to have a list of 26" AL frames...
  22. Aluminum frame bikes with low-rider front rack mounts?

    Since aluminum touring bikes seem to be harder to find, and much more so in 26", I was hoping this could serve as a future search tool to help people looking for those options. Please post any...

    Koga has several 26" in their line-up. That's why I mentioned them before the MTB conversion route. In my experience, ride harshness isn't really an issue on a touring bike where you will be running...

    I think the old guy is talking about rocky, rough off-road stuff, not smoother dirt paths. Your bike is probably pretty much great for the kind of stuff you do. A fast commuter road bike would be...
