At the beginning of march i'm heading on a tour of europe, planning to ride my bike for a few days then catch a train to my next destination. I'm looking for the following gear but am not sure which way to jump.
Tyres: The bike is a cheap roadie, but quite comfortable. at the moment it has the 23mm tyres it came with which are crap so i want to replace them with 25's and something which will offer some better puncture protection. I'd prefer slicks (i'm not planning to leave sealed roads), but "all season" type tyres would probably suit.
Map holder: Not one on a bar-bag as i don't need any more carrying capacity. All the models i have found seem to obscure my computer, which i will need for navigation. are there any which project forward of the bars?
Elastic thing for my rack: To hold my TARDIS bike bag and jacketto the top of the rear rack. I don't even know what to search for to find something like this but there must be one out there.
Saddle: I rode 700km in a week last august on a jake the snake which came with a WTB Rocket V and found it very comfortable, but these seem to be out of production. Any suggestions
I think that's it. Will look forward to any advice.
