Touring article in August Bicycling Mag
Haven't read it yet, but hidden amongst all the Lance in the August issue is a story about "worlds colliding" - they outfitted an experienced minimalist/speed tourer with a complete set of stuff he usually doesn't carry and a comfort tourer with a minimal set of speedy stuff, and sent them on a bike tour in California together.
If you don't normally buy it, you might want to have a read.
Old MTB and BRAND NEW Cannondale T2000. Yipee!!!!!
READ IT AND LOVED IT!!!!
'Specilly as I thought long and hard about which of those two ways to tour to California, from Colorado, AND I have lived in Mill Valley and Healdsburg, the start and finishing points, AND worked at one of the wineries they featured in the article!!! I thought the article was written for me!
