    That sounds like a pretty big gear for any kind of sustained climbing. Have you checked your route to see the elevation profile? Even with a light load, that seems like a big gearing for your task....

    For me I never felt like I lost all that much efficiency changing to sneakers with clips and straps, so it was a non issue, but I understand that everyone is different in what they are sensitive to...

    For me it's not the weight of carrying a second pair of shoes, it's the space they take up. I'm planning a long trip now and have decided to switch to clips and straps instead of clipless pedals,...

    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...

    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...

    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...
