    Another trike tour went to the Icefields Parkway, between Lake Louise and Jasper. While being a short distance, we did it in 3 days, the scenery made up for distance. i'd love to go back there but for longer. Met 2 trikers from Austrailia
    husband and wife team. Going to cross North America from Alaska on.

    Loaded in Alaska

    Here are Pip (with Bob trailer) and James, Logo Recumbent Trikes proudly owned by my wife Joanne and I.
    These shots were taken after we had picked up our food drop in Coldfoot Alaska as we made our way down the Dalton.

    Thanks for the thread - lots of great pictures and inspiration!

    Impressive load there! Looks mighty comfy though.
    How's the rear wheels and tires holding up?

    Mike Melton touring bike

    Mike Melton touring bike

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Attached are pictures of my "new" refurbished 1981 Mike Melton touring bike outfitted for light credit-card touring. Mike Melton is better known for designing and building the custom race bikes that the US Olympic Team used in 1984 and 1988. He went to work for Huffy for the Olympic effort. This frameset was probably built in South Carolina before he moved to Ohio.

    According to the previous owner it is constructed of double butted Reynolds 531 tubing with Cinelli lugs and Campy long 1010 dropouts and was professional refinished using Spies Heckler paints and Melton Decals from CycleArt. Although it has 126mm horizontal drops, it easily accommodates a 130mm wheel built with a 36 hole 105 hub, 2.0 DT spokes and Synergy asymmetrical rear rim. The front wheel uses a 36 spoke Ultegra hub and Dyad rim, both wheels shod with Ruffy Tuffy 28mm tires. Fitting the SKS fenders was a challange and the rear still needs work. I started out with Tektro 538 standard reach brakes but had to substitute the Shimano long reach in the rear for clearance. Other key components are the Sugino R600 triple crank (50-36-24), XT rear der, 105 front der, Nitto stem, Nitto Noddle bars, vintage Campy headset and seat post, Tektro R200 levers, Nitto rack and Brooks B17 saddle.

    The panniers are Arkel GT-18's which although normally are used up front, accommodate 2200 cu inches and are perfect for credit card touring. The handlebar bag is also Arkel and is mounted lower with the help of an intermediate 80mm stem. I'd like to find a 60 or 70 mm silver 1" stem to replace the black CODA if anyone has one for sale.

    No issues with the wheels and the Marathon XR rubber was just fabulous!

    My Surly CrossCheck

    I have my Cross Check in somewhat of a touring mode. My kids and wife got me some goodies for Christmas that I have put on. The only thing I really need from this point is a set of Sport Packer Plus panniers with Tubus rack for the front. But I think I will ride it this way for a while









    Do any of you see any weak points in my set-up? BTW, I do have a black Ortlieb rack pack that is not in the photos. What is the best way to put it on securely?

    It is a Gamin Edge 205....I did not need the cadence feature of the 305 and saved a little money. It is good for tracking miles, speed, routes, and just about anything that I need to track. I like it alot and ride with it always.

    Lincoln, you asked for opinions, mine is that weight on the front end is better located lower and closer to the head tube. Either with low riders and panniers or a front rack with panniers or gear on the rack. Just an opinion.

    I intend to get a Tubus front with Ortlieb Sport Packers....just gotta get the $...I have seen many pics of many bikes set up similar to mine so for now I will ride it that way. But just until I get the money for the rest

    there are more affordable options that will work just as well. have you tried touring with the stuff you have? or have you just been riding about with your panniers empty? after doing a few overnighters or longer trips, you may find that front panniers aren't necessary. or, that you want to try something different.

    Boh, I actually will be doing a small 200 mile mini-tour shortly in which I will use what I have and see how it goes. If all goes well I may put off getting the front rack and panniers until I start the really long distance tours when they would make more sense. I am just getting into this and am not really sure what I will need. I will make adjustments as things pop up and hopefully end up with, what for me will be, the perfect touring set-up. I have had people telling me to go to a triple front, MTB rear cassette and derailleur, go with front rack and panniers, go with a trailer and ditch the racks and panniers, buy another bike like an LHT, and all kinds of other advice, which if I followed would leave me broke and destitute I think, for now, I will just run what I brung...if it ain't right I can always change my setup

    i did a 400 mile trip this winter along the VA/NC boarder with bulky winter stuff and a zero degree bag. i only used mid sized rear panniers. i think they're axiom champlains. maybe 60 bucks for the panniers and 20 for the rear rack? i think the rack is an axiom journey. i have front panniers, and a low rider rack, but i cant imagine having to carry enough stuff to warrant using them on a tour.
