I am building a bike to ride cross country, but not just any bike, I am building a tall touring bike. Yes thats right, not only am I going to ride a bicycle 1,000s of miles across this great land, But I'm going to do it on a vertically unchallenged frame. I'm leaving the beginning of May and most of my money I have saved is put into keeping me alive a.k.a. food and water.
What I'm asking of you folks is; does anyone have any panniers or camping gear they wouldn't mind donating to me or at least letting me use it for the summer? Maybe a you have a great crank or some touring rims that would do me well but are just sitting around in the garage, cause if so that would be great!
I plan on taking my camera and computer and doing a blog of my trip (one I still have to set up) so everyone can follow me along the way.
Anything that could help would be most appreciated
First stop 1,000miles to Chicago
