Wow, that is a really nice shoulder to ride one it seems.

CdCf 11-01-04 10:16 PM

Seems to end in a hedge just ahead though...

My Novarra Randonee in 2000 at Baraga State Park in the Western Upper Penninsula of Michigan. Looks like I had already taken the sleeping pad off the rear rack. Nice trip.

The shoulder was 3-4 feet wide the whole trip and clean too! In the pic with the guard rail, the shoulder was even wider as you can see, it was at a swampy area with a small bridge about thirty yards in front of my bike. Wide enough for me to stop & take a break and still stay far from the traffic of which there wasn't much on a Friday morning.

What front rack is that Clay?

clayface 11-02-04 09:23 PM

That's a Minoura, IT. This is of alu tubing. Very stiff and no prob so far, but I'm not 100% sure of it. I've always been afraid it may fail at any time, so am considering steel racks for my Club Tour (my do-it all ride these days).

I previously posted a picture of my Atlantis on this thread.
It now has its own page

There are also some pages on my recent Netherlands tour including some pictures of Dutch bikes

I posted a photo of my bike near the beginning of this thread.

Since then I bought a Jannd front rack and Performance panniers. Today I threw some stuff in the bags (Performance in front, Arkel in back, with an Arkel small handlebar bag) on the bike and rode it around town for awhile.

The bike handles better with the weight distributed this way. Can't wait to do another long tour next year.

Camel 11-07-04 03:32 AM

Nice. I have Jandd racks&bags. I like that the front has high & low mounting options, as well as the flat top platform (kinda heavy though). My bike handles better with the front bags mounted low, probably because I pack heavy/dense stuff up front in them.

Pic's to follow at some point when I'm home w/time.

Slow Climb...I love the Western U.P..I have a "Say Yeah to the UP,heah!" bumper sticker on my car..
Is not Baraga State Park in L'Anse? What did you think of the roads about the Upper Peninsula..? How are the shoulders...? Did you just wing it or get some good advice as to best routes for bikes to take? Seems U.P. roads are not the best? Been years since I was there...What all did you see/travel in the UP?
Get your fill of Pasties..?.That would be a good treat on a long hard ride...Supposedly the best Pastie restaurant in the UP is in L'Anse...
I could almost retire up there, but from October to May you would have to turn your bike into a snowmobile...

Here is a pic of my loaded Raleigh R300. I couldn't find one of my Waterford loaded, with the Jandd rack setup, bags low in front.

Found an obscured one of my Waterford.

Camel 11-07-04 02:28 PM

Note that rather than standard bidons, I just use 1 or 1.5L bottles that the bottled waters come in. Very handy for long distances. In Romania I found slim 2L ones that fit my cages.

On the way up to the same above posted campground, last July.

Camel, I just noticed the stand on the bike,Raleigh R300, placed where the weight is, very useful I bet . Is it a normal standwith a modified coupling. Please give details as that could be very useful

I'm the second owner, and you know, I actually never considered checking the year! I sent Waterford my frame # so they could register change of ownership, and I should have confirmed the year with them (but if I recall it is 2 digits of the frame#-I forget which, but I want to say it's a 2000).

It's a 1900 "Adventure Cycle" here are the spec's:

Frame: Reynolds 853 main triangle, 531 stays, size: 58 cm,
color: Candy Red(vy nice, yet subtle).
I've covered the decals&headbadge with thin black nylon ?zipper fabric.
Fork: Reynolds 531, 1" threaded steerer
Geometry
seat tube: 55.5 cm c-t
top tube: 57 cm c-c
standover: 82.5 cm
chainstay: 44.5 cm
wheelbase: 104 cm
Braze-ons:
3 sets bottle cage bosses
chain hanger
seatpost binder
pump peg
2 sets of eyelets, front and rear
Dropouts: Henry James stainless steel, vertical, 135 mm OLD
Headset: Shimano Ultegra
Stem: Nitto Technomic deluxe, 10 cm ext.
Bars: Nitto Dirt Drop (pretty darned comfy-they flare out at the bottom) , 46 cm at brake hoods
Saddle: Brown Brooks Team Pro (Harris Cyclery was out of honey the day I wanted a new saddle).
Brakes: Avid Shorty 4 center-pull cantilever, Kool Stop salmon pads
Brake levers/Shifters: Shimano Ultegra STI, black hoods
Front derailer: Shimano Ultegra triple
Rear derailer: Shimano XT SGS
Bottom bracket: Shimano Ultegra, splined
Crankset: Shimano Ultegra, 172.5 crank length, 24(generic)/38/48 TA rings
Pedals: eggbeaters stainless
Racks: Jandd Expedition front&rear
Fenders: SKS (I still need to make a mud flap!)
Front wheel:
Shimano 105 hub
32 spokes
Mavic MA3 rim, 700c
14g straight gauge spokes
Rear wheel:
Shimano XT freewheel hub
36 spokes
Shimano XT freewheel (11/12/14/16/18/21/24/28/32)
Mavic MA3 rim, 700c
14g straight gauge spokes
Tires: Specialized Infinity Armadillo

I also bought an excellent spare front wheel with the bike, built on an MA3 rim and a Schmidt Dyno hub. All three wheels are Peter White built, and his craftsmanship shows! I have yet to retrue one of them, and some of the roads I toured were pretty darned bad. The rear rim is wearing a bit, so its due for a re-build.

It was OK. The spring kept acting up-not "locking" when it was down, so it seemed to tip easier. There is a triangular reinforcing plate that bolts where the stays meet, keeping the stand itself from twisting. I realy prefer the pletscher double leg BB stand over all I've tried though.

Here a link to a picture of our fully loaded tandem. (From a thread in the tandem group of course)

I'm new to the forums and over night trips. This is my bike during my first over night trip, 4 days, 3 nights riding the C&O towpath. The picture was taken at the end of the ride, we started at mile marker 184.5

Camel 11-15-04 11:13 AM

Hey Rambo,

Welcome+Nice ride.

Is that a suspension fork? If so, did you put your bags up front during part of the tour-how did the bike handle?

Also- What's mounted on your handle bar? Radio, walkie talkie, cell phone or GPS?

Thanks

Rambo 11-15-04 12:13 PM

yes it is a suspension fork. Its a really old fork. Its made by specialized, I think they were called Duo-Shock.

I mounted the low rider rack on the front incase one of the other two guys I was riding with had problems and I had to carry their gear too. it didn't happen, but it almost did! One guys rear rack broke, but we held it together with wire ties for the last days ride.

Monted on the handle bars is my garmin 60c GPS.
