    Blue sky also had this wheelset at $135. Better rims and hubs comparable to Deore but with 130mm rear spacing which may fit your dropouts better.

    On my 1980 Schwinn Voyageur which I converted to 700cc and modern cassette hubs, I used 36 hole Sun CR 18 rims and Tiagra hubs and they built up to be very strong wheels for touring. Very...

    I have a 1980 Voyageur 11.8. I purchased it brand new back in 1980 for $400. Apart from the Paramount line, it was Schwinn's top of the line back at the time. It was marketed as a "touring" bike...

    I am 5'8" and have a 56cm Soma Saga. The top tube was slightly long for me so I have me saddle as far forward on the rails as it will go and I changed the 90mm stem to an 80mm one. (the stem can be...

    I am about your size but a little heavier and have a loaded touring bike that I don't feel is harsh at all. Actually, just the opposite especially when loaded. When not loaded it may feel slightly...

    Have you limited yourself to Surley options? I have a Soma Saga which is billed as a loaded touring bike but is more agile than an LHT. It may be a good compromise between an LHT and a CC.

    I used it on my new frame. As others have said it is probably unnecessary but since I had a unbuilt frame I figured I'd be anal and use it. It is sticky and messy so be prepared to get it on your...

    No. Running a marathon makes walking the next day difficult. Yet a reasonably fit person can handle a century ride fairly easily.

    I have an Axiom pro tour inox which is stainless steel. Very strong and relatively inexpensive compared to Tubus racks. Unfortunately, I don't think Axiom carries them anymore.

    I like to bicycle tour and when I go into restaurants, etc. I put a pair of baggy shorts over my bike shorts and I also put on a fresh T shirt. Maybe it's my imagination but I don't want to be...

    I bought the saddle second-hand. I guess it is well broken in. It is very comfortable.

    You might look at Axiom racks. Some models come equipped with an attachment that allow you to mount the rack further back if you have shorter chainstays.
