    Thanks for the discussion everyone. All good points against going this route, and ones I've been batting around in my head. The pinion stuff has been on the market for five years, so it's not totally...

    I saw that Hilite thread. That's a bit pricey for me, even though I'm already looking at some pretty expensive bikes. The pinion website has this page which allows you to sort through some of the...

    Pinion Gearbox with S and S Couplers

    In preparation for a long upcoming tour I have been setting my sights on ever more and more fantastical and grander touring bikes. I have been interested in internal gear systems like the Rohloff...

    Thanks for the link! I'm looking at my route now so I'll let you know if I have any questions! Ok, enough thread hijacking. Back to discussing the merits of upright riding.

    I didn't take it that way at all. I think it was you who noted earlier that people tour in different ways.

    Sounds like you have a great trip planned. I'm doing Washington state to South America...

    Interesting with the other information. It certainly sounds like of the people you met on that tour, they might not have been stopping as frequently as you. It's just a bit of a leap to suggest that...

    Is this a joke or do you actually think they rode faster than you because they were uncomfortable on their bikes?

    I always find this line of reasoning interesting, as I have never found using clipless pedals to be any kind of stress or fight or struggle. I felt they were intuitive and simple to use from the get...

    You get about twenty different sized mounting brackets with the light, and four or five of the part that the light attaches to, so you should be fine ordering one light, as far as mounting hardware...

    I just received this light in the mail a couple of days ago and mounted it on the bike today. AS far as my very scientific test of looking at it flashing against the wall of my living room, it's...

    I think bikemig got autocorrected out of what he wanted to type, which was 'bikepacking.' This entails lightening your load and using smaller frame bags rather than racks and panniers. Not many here...

    That's interesting. I have a Disc Trucker too, and I find it to be incredibly easy to ride with no hands loaded or unloaded. Tubus something in the back and Duo on the front. It's definitely easier...

    You might be surprised to find out how quickly this becomes second nature. Maybe it depends on how stable you feel on a bike though, i.e. riding with one hand or no hands. After seeing a relatively...

    I've done it on my fixed gear commuter when I didn't have a wrench for the wheel nuts. It's not the most convenient, but it's possible, and not really that difficult. I'd definitely rather take the...

    Thanks so much for the help. Great information. The lack of campsites is a concern. I do a lot of free camping here, but I think I'll be hesitant to try it out straight away on this trip, not having...

    What about heading south on the old 195? Looks like it runs alongside the new highway and I can meander down to Lewiston before heading west. Is there any redeeming value to this or should I just try...

    Thanks for all the suggestions. Vantage Bridge sounds decidedly unpleasant. It seems like the best riding from Spokane is north, rather than south or west. That North Cascades Highway looks like it...

    Thanks for the response. I'm fine getting to Spokane. I'll actually be flying back to the US from Tokyo, and my friend who lives in Spokane will be picking me up from wherever I fly into.

    Thanks...
