looking to start a social ride/camp coffee group for the baltimore area. check out the link if you're interested
front rack + wald basket
Wald Wire Basket
i love having a basket
also it's a road bike but I turned it into a townie.
It's recreational quality so I figured a recreational buyer might want to know the size range.
I'd like to make the ad as informative as possible. Along with sizes, multiple pictures, and detailed specs, anything else I should include?
definitely. i've been thinking of starting something like this in baltimore

this thread is very relevant to my interests. been waiting for the weather to warm up enough to ride out into the woods for a leisurely camp coffee. i'm actually interested in how other people carry...
I know 700c is a smaller wheel but I would like to be able to fit 32s on my wheels but the kickstand plate won't let me.
I have a 27" Schwinn Traveler that is a great candidate for a 700c conversion but clearance is limited due to the kickstand plate. Has anyone here ever removed theirs for this purpose? If so, how?
you bring up a very good point but hopefully i won't be carrying much weight for simple overnights. i also have a bob yak but that is overkill, especially since i might need to do some train...
thanks for the reassurance, adventurepdx
We haven't actually done any tests at that weight as the attachment points are really there with rainwear and similar lighter loads in mind. However, the stitching on all the leather...
this looks exactly like my set up minus the frame bag and with a barley instead of a longflap. glad it works for you.

I'd looking to utilize the D rings on my Carradice Barley bag but I'm wondering about the strength of the stitching. What have you successfully attached to yours on tours? The bag is being supported...
Thanks it's a '88 615. I think it could probably squeeze 37/ if it had to. Ill have to update the photo since I put some tan walls and silver sks fenders
exact same thing happened to me this year. had to take a few weeks off the bike due to not being able to unclip without pain.
Forte 700x35 Gothams onAlex DA28 rims. Eventually going to put 32s and fenders on it
the ride is great! still working on my fit but it's very comfortable. really looking forward to doing some bike camping with it when the weather gets warm again
thanks! and it's familiar to him because he sold me the frame :)
just finished building this up. it's my "everything else" bike that goes where ever my road bike or mountain bike don't want to go.
what I added to it:
Nitto Noodle bar
Nitto Technomic Deluxe stem
Tektro RL340 brake levers
Brooks B17 saddle
Generic Ebay seatpost (original was a nice fluted one but not long enough)
