Hello travelers. I'm not an experienced tourer, but I'd like to try a trip down the West Coast at some point in the future. Even if it's just an overnighter. I'm a pretty experienced camper, so I think I have that part covered. I'm also a fairly experienced bike rider, although I've never attempted the distances that a Tourer would put in per day. But, I have a bike in my garage that keeps winking at me! I'll post a photo, and maybe some of you will recognize it. If not. it's basically an old steel frame touring bike that is considered worthy in it's day. My questions is, what it needs to make it worthy of a long distance ride "today". What does a Tourer consider the important points of a touring bike. Upgrade the hubs, the BB, the rims, the shifters, the tires? The frame is sound. Where would you go from there if this was your bike?
