Rocky Mountain Sherpa 10
Hi there, tourists,
I know there are some Rocky Mountain Sherpa lovers out there somewhere, because I've seen y'all sprout up all over the threads here.
I'm interested in having a look at the Sherpa 10, that's the one with aluminum frame & disc brakes. Not the Sherpa 30, which is the Reynolds 853 chromoly frame & Tektro cantilevers. The main thing I'm interested in is commuting with the occasional exploration
if I have the time for it. Sure you can call it touring, I call it exploring
The reason I'm lookin' at disc brakes is because I'm moving to an area well-known for its rainy weather and wet/damp environment.
Anyway, anybody have any experiences with the Sherpa 10? I'm not digging the aluminum fork, so I guess I'd have to have that changed if the road vibrations get too bad for it, huh?
