    Hi DJB,

    Thanks very much for your best wishes. I don't weigh much more, I barely tip the scale at 72kg and that was before I started the tour. Being my first tour, I suppose I was always going to be heavy until I learned what I could do without. I also no no different in terms of weight, so in some respects this is my 'norm'. Wheels were handmade in England for me (700cc, Rigida Sputnik rims, combination of Sapim Race and Strong spokes with Shimano LH hubs and a Shimano SLX 9 speed casette).

    Other than writing a blog, I have not done much with the cycling detail. The cycling is really a means to an end for me - the main emphasis is birdwatching. I rarely cycle the 'usual north/route, so don't bump into many other cyclists. I had never heard of CGOAB until you mentioned it, but thanks for the info - looks very useful!

    My son and I took a short trip in NY last week, fortunately he is the same size as me and was able to ride my my monstercross setup. I left it single speed as the terrain was flat , gearing low and we were traveling light.PA080062 - Copy2.jpg

    I know, this is kind of an old post, but just in case, what tires are those in your Trel 520? Those are pretty "fat" tires and they fit.

    Took my '79 Raliegh Super Record on a rainy 60 mile ride to my family's summer home in southwestern Michigan.. This bike wasn't very "Super" when I got it. I think it lives up to the name now. I swapped the beat up steel 27" 5 speed wheelset for a 7 speed 700c freewheel rear wheel from an early 90's hybrid featuring a 34t granny gear. I swapped the forged square taper crankset for a 90's 105 road triple and sealed bb. I replaced the friction stem shifters with campy clamp on dt shifters.

    I am planning on using this bike to do somewhat extensive touring next year, and will ride it extensively this winter to work the gremlins out. (Haven't found any yet)

    This is my Civia Bryant belt drive at the start of the Great Allegheny Passage (GAP) Trail in Cumberland, MD. This was a weekend bike camp trip with everything minus food and cooking gear. The GAP Trail has lots of good food along the way.

    Here is my 420 which made it 6k miles from DC to Washington State, the long way before the frame failed.

    another angle showing the "Dog" feature.

    This is the replacement 520 that made it back to the East,still the long way around.

    Here is another one leaving New Jersey, because I know people always wonder options for loading the bike with a dog. Yes, we had and are still having a hoot 10 Months later.

    Hey Wilson!! I rubbed elbows with you a bit in Missoula! I also talked with the guys at Angle Lake Cycle in Seattle later on about your trip! Where you at now?

    *Sigh* Maybe I'd regret it if I sold the old wench! ... But only if I didn't build something better.

    Notice how by the end of the tour I'd gotten down to two panniers...! If only I'd done that before going up that mountain range...

    I never cease to be surprised at the packing choices other tourers make! I met a very sweet girl who seemed to be touring with half a walk-in closet's worth of clothes.
