    Thanks for your feed back. Not for praising aluminum frame. May be I should look at Cannondale, if I decide that I need a stiffer frame, for a more loaded tourer:thumb:.
  2. Have you ridden a titanium frame? May be I'm...

    Have you ridden a titanium frame? May be I'm being critical, but Cannondale made aluminum framed tourers that were not giving an inch to the 520. Same for Blackburn aluminium racks. Their...

    I asked this question on a local forum, and one tourer confirmed that even canti brakes are adequate on loaded bike on sharp descend. The tyre blown incidents were caused by not applying judicious...

    Thanks for detailed suggestions.
  5. Dear Barrettscv...

    Dear Barrettscv, I'm not really concerned with the brake fading problem, but rather from tyre blown from over heated rim. Nevertheless, I appreciate your advice. Dear Steve0000, thank you for the...
  6. Disc brake and canti brake together on same bike?

    I'm getting a new frame with provision for both types of brake. I've been reading posts from people who blown their tyres from going down hill and over heating the rim. Any advice on this matter...

    This is the one I have. It came with fiberglass poles, which cracked half way through my tour. I taped duct tape around the cracked tip, and survived the...

    Dear Machka, I clearly have a dilemma. A love/ hate relationship with your post. After reading your post, I raided my refrigerator and emptied what ever ice cream I had. And I'm not on a tour.:cry:

    Damned! I never had such luxuries on my tours. No wonder, I loose lots of weight touring, while eating about twice as much as I do normally. May be I should rethink, and eat ice creams and desserts...

    I'm a Thai, living in Thailand. The frame is from China, and the frame is chromoly. I've seen many bikes from China with chromoly frame, but with hi-tensile fork. hence my skepticism. The price is...
  13. WINDSPEED LONGRIDER / 26" Classic Touring 4130 Chromoly Frame Set

    Any body using one, or familiar with it? The local bs is quoting tempting price, but I'm a little hesitant. Nothing is said about the fork, and I wonder if it's 4130 Chromoly, or just plain high...

    I was going to comment that I had good long distance rides with Selle Italia :: SLR , but that was on my real road bike. I think the riding posture is quite different than touring. Nevertheless, I...

    Thanks again. I'm getting a new road bike with 52,36 chainrings, so may as well get suitable cassette. 34x25 is a bit too tough to chew right now:cry:. In other words I climb just as slowly on the...

    Thanks. I couldn't find a proper sub forum to ask questions, but your post answered what I'd like to ask.:) I'm in a predicament. I'm not a fast guy, but a pretender. I'm 68, but the...

    I'm a sucker for light bike touring, bred by my love for road riding. I tour on Bianchi Volpe http://urbanvelo.org/bianchi-volpe-review/ , and enjoy the ride very much. Yet I think the...

    I only put racks on my Bianchi Volpe CX, when I go touring. The bike (28mm tyres) is used so I keep in shape, and some times when I know my "opponents" will not be strong on their roadies.:roflmao2:

    Wow! Thanks guys for all your inputs. I'm totally amazed with cyccommute's prowess. I've 50/12 on my road bike and can hit 60 kph in peloton, but with my Bianchi Volpe, and 28C tyres, I can only get...
  20. Lowest top gear inch you can happily live with?

    What is the lowest top gear inch you guys can tolerate? While I can touch 60kph, riding my road bike in a peloton, I can accept 80 gear inch as top necessary for my loaded tour bike. Forty kph is...

    I do light touring with CX bicycle. Total load including rider is <190lbs. Currently I use Panaracer Pasela 700C 28mm tyre, and am very satisfied with it. I've come across Panaracer RiBMo folding...
