    Your post reminds me of how great the riding is in Michigan. I completed a cross Michigan ride from Cadillac to Mackinaw and a "Lone Wolf" ride (off road) from Munising to Copper Harbor. Wonderful...

    It'll be easier to get advice if you give an idea of what type of riding you expect to do with this nice and very capable touring bike.

    It may take some work, but you might ask the bike company that you are getting the bike from to tell you what size box they ship it in (or ask your shop) and then have them give you the...

    Just sent my Vaya (56cm) to Iowa for $64 via FedEx and used a standard bike box. Seems a long way around to buy a bike to fit the box.

    For those of you looking at VO bikes (this or any other) I have to say I am impressed at how nicely put together the frame is on my Campeur. Great paint and welds. The bike also rides very nice on...

    I usually don't carry enough to warrant a set of panniers for a one day 80 mile trip. The backpack is a convenient way to carry what you stated and some snacks, as long as it isn't much heavier than...

    So probably mid April would be the earliest reasonable start date, with potential for rain and soggy conditions. Sounds to me like May should give me better/higher chances for better conditions. I...

    GAP Riding Window

    On the way back to Florida during a recent motorcycle trip, I got to stop along the C&O pathway and it renewed my strong interest in riding the GAP. I love the history of the area and the adventure....

    Maybe our curse - we are always trying new things and creating variety. I too at one time eyed the Varsity as THE bike to have back in the late 60s. The Collegiate was up there as well.

    Indexing works beautifully for me and has for about 50,000+ miles. I have recently switched to friction and simply like the smoothness of the shifts. I did ride my Vaya recently with the indexing...

    From the way people were dressed today on the bus (I'm riding the bike home) you'd think we were in Boston today. It was only 48 degrees this morning, and it was funny to see how bundled up they...

    Thank you spinnaker for boosting him up. At 51 Papa Tom I would think you should be having the money and time start opening up for MORE adventures, not less. Heck, I'm older than you and thinking of...

    We are not machines. Sometimes there is no rhyme or reason (at least that we can figure out) to the low spots in our rides and routines. I go with that low feeling and the high feeling whenever they...

    I went with the Nelson LF and if it proves too fussy to use the buckles - and - if there is room for the taller Super C I will return and reorder.

    Thanks.

    Thanks nun. I think the longflap gives the bag a lot of versatility. As far as the camping gear goes the majority will be on the front rack. I expect the sleeping bag in the bag, but will work...

    Yes, there will be a few other items and the sleeping bag is about the size of a can of coffee or a squished (lengthwise) loaf of bread - or something like that:). Sounds like the Nelson LF would do...

    I would guess that a light bungee or piece of line would hold my fleece as well as a "long flap," as the Super C does not have. I like the Super C, but for the lack of flap - but never thought of it...
