The saddle appears to be tilited up too far because my seatpost splines stripped during this trip. I was unable to get the saddle to stay in any other position, so I had to get a new post.
That is the most unusual radical seat angle I've ever seen!

This is an unloaded picture of my new LHT. I live on the entrance to the Joshua tree National park and have started training with this heavy beast!!! This shot is from the Keys view over look. 40 miles round trip and 2500 feet of gain from my house. It's not a great picture.... the view is really spectacular.

I love love love riding in the park.. been doing it for years and I never tire of her

40 miles. Is that the loop over to JT & back on the hwy? I used to really enjoy blasting back down the hill to the main entrance (this was in the day when it was only JT National Monument).

It's been a few years...

Hey Roger, That's the route from my home on Quail Springs rd to Keys and back. Yeah I'm afraid I am old enough to still call this palce a monument too. Most of the roads have been re-done several times in the last twenty years. The road from Cap rock to Keys view is brand spank'n new. really sweet.

Somewhat loaded at destination:



Single day solo tour from Shelby Twp., MI to Ipperwash Beach, ON. Hot as the devil, but it was fun and I learned a lot about touring alone. The route was roughly 98 miles through mostly semi-rural (and flat) MI and ON. I met a family member at the campsite and drove back the next day. I felt like I could have ridden home, but the heat was worse than the day before so it wasn't worth the risk.

On the rack I had the Ortlieb panniers and a trunk with a tripod strapped to it. The front is a modified camera bag.

Yeah, I was out there when U2 made "Joshua Tree", & returned for a visit in '02. Your pic really brought back some good memories!

Thanks.

A few pictures of my Fuji Touring from my recent Lake Michigan circle tour:





That's as fully loaded as I've ever needed to carry a tent, sleeping bag and mat, clothes, and food for a vegan cyclist.

Good day - this'll be my first post, and this here seems a good place to put it. Here is my bike, surrounded by the morning sprawl, on the second day of an 5 day tour in my home state. Picture is taken in Wyoming, Minnesota.

Since it's hard to see, I'll just go ahead and admit those are some $36 nashbar panniers in the front. They get the job done, but they are a bit cramped and likely to be replaced next year.
