    vik, that's an awesome photo, and akin to some of the views I'm used to while backpacking. Thanks for the tips. For some reason I figured BF would be my one stop shop for all bike related discussion....

    Yes, I have the 700 model. Although I can fit larger tires than what I've got on there now, a fully rigid frame can only travel so fast on rough trails; even worse when laden with gear. I don't want...
  3. On-Road to Off-Road: making the switch

    I have been using a touring bike (Soma Saga) for the past couple years primarily as a car replacement/commuter. I still have a car to get around when needed, just don't use it much for local trips. I...

    Haven't used toured CC but my backpacking experience tells me that hail is basically a non-issue for 3 season tents. The times you need a 4 season are in high winds and heavy or blowing snow. Hail...

    As you are already seemingly aware, it will be next to impossible to find cycling shoes in varying widths. The cycling shoe market is a relatively small one as it is, so they tend not to make great...

    I don't have 105 STI shifters on my bike, but my wife does. It's really gonna depend on what you put on the top of the rack or how wide your chosen bag is. For shifting, the end of the brake lever...

    I looked around a bit for you, out of my own curiosity. I found this item, which is pretty cheap (probably in quality as well as price) but it's a seatpost rack where the platform and the support are...

    The hole dang ride is gorgeous, but my favorite camping spots along that stretch are:

    Andrew Molera SP, no dedicated bike camping but it's walk-in only, cars park about 0.5 miles from the sites...

    Logo Evo here. Had the Logo first (older model) then was nearly t-boned by a motorist, the rack was destroyed but it saved the rest of my bike. I wanted to replace it but by then the Logo Evo was...

    Xtracycle Dimensions

    Hey Gang,

    So I'm looking at replacing the lower decks on my Trek Transport and am wondering if the dimensions are similar enough that I could just adapt the Xtracycle parts for my application....

    That collar you acquired replaces the seatpost collar on your bike. It keeps the seatpost in place but the design primarily transfers any stress from the rack to the seatpost tube (the frame...

    I realize there are a lot of posts about kickstands, but I would like to hear from any fellow longtail owners who have used both single and double leg kickstands on their bikes. I have a double...

    For rear rack, I have and am really happy with the logo evo. It's what you call...a nice rack. I've only done short tours so far and haven't had need for more capacity than what two Backrollers and...

    There's one very similar to that (Dero Fixit) in front of the gym at my school; only the one at my school has (or had) a pump attached. I really do like the concept because most people don't have...
