I've been wanting to do a little local touring (3-4 day camping trips), and have been thinking I'd go with an ExtraWheel trailer and (depending on the route and the weight of the loaded trailer) pull it either with my Specialized roubaix (a triple) or a Specialized S-Works Tricross (compact double). I like the idea of this trailer, which of I've read good reviews. I have touyed with the idea of getting (yikes) another bike for touring, but think this is more suitable (and there is no room in the garage) The sworks tricross has no way to mount a conventional touring rack or I'd consider using it for touring.
comments? is this a viable combination for short camping trips. -
in the event I really get the touring bug, is it a viable combination for longer trips too? for REALLY long trips I could switch the tricross into a triple - wider tires AND lower gearing - though think i need different brifters to do this though - currently 2006 DuraAce compact double - they wont work for triple chainrings will they? .
