Serotta w/ Kool Stop trailer - your feedback please

I'm considering a 4-5 day ride with my Serotta AL pulling a Kool Stop trailer which hold 6 panniers, the picture showing 4. My tires are only 23s so I'll swap those out for 28s or 25s I think. I've got an old Fuji with a rear rack that I could use, but I've never used the trailer before and want to give it a try, and if I want to ride without the trailer or any gear , the Serotta is my go to bike. I hooked it up tonight and rode it around a bit and it rode nicely. Having the weight so low to the ground seems to make it very stable.

So my question to experienced tourers - is the Serotta/Kool Stop set up ok for a short trip? Anything I should be aware of or watch out for?

Thanks for your help. Ride on!

FYI - Here's the riding I'm considering joining:

A group of Veterans For Peace, including some disabled veterans, will transport themselves from the Vietnam Veterans Against the War 40th Anniversary in Chicago August 3-5th to the Veterans For Peace Convention in St. Louis August 15-19th by riding bicycles. The goal is to demonstrate individual responsibility toward ending our addiction to oil and the wars for oil.
Here are accounts of last years ride:
https://www.vfp56.org/seattle.html
https://www.squadron13.com/RideforPeace/default.htm
We will transport ourselves along the route 66 trail:
https://bikelib.org/route66/
We are hoping that bicyclists along our route will join us in our riding, host us in our overnight stays and join us in the gatherings we enjoy in our hosting towns.
We would especially be grateful for a guide through your area, as we are not local and are not accomplished riders. We will stay in Brookfield but muster at Wheel Thing bicycle shop at 15 S La Grange Rd early in the morning on August 6th and could sure use a guide into Joliet. We also need a guide Joliet to Dwight or Braidwood on the 7th.
We anticipate riding just 30-50 miles a day, and our overnight stops will be in Brookfield 5th, Joliet 6th, Dwight or Braidwood 7th, Pontiac 8th, Bloomington/Normal 9th, Lincoln 10th, Springfield 11th, Litchfield or Waggoner 12th, Mount Olive (with a special gathering at the Mother Jones Monument) on the 13th and Hamel on the 14th. We have currently been offered camping/sleeping space in Brookfield on the 5th, in Joliet at the VFW on the 6th and in Pontiac on the 8th (in the VFW yard). We would enjoy hosts all along the way and gatherings in each overnight stop. Any assistance you can give us would be greatly appreciated.

Best wishes, Lane Anderson

Why do we not stop this incredible slaughter and waste and destruction, this sordid, interminable, and expanding war? I believe it boils down to one central reason. As a country we cannot bear to say that we have made a horrible, massive mistake. We cannot bear, in short, to lose face. What a reason for continuing. The one thing we might learn from this incredible tragedy is to gain a clear view of the enemy. If we peer closely through the blood and death and awful ruin we can see the enemy clearly. He is us.-- Psychologist Carl Rogers commenting on the Vietnam War....End The War https://thankyouLt.org

Ten points Black Shuck! You know your stuff. Its actually an East German helmet though (Basically Soviet)

Comfortable, not sure about the collision protection though...

Just finished rebuilding a 96 San Remo for touring and local shopping. Included a frame repaint and all new components. Have not hit the road with it yet but will be making a short shake down cruise to some local campgrounds to make sure everything works OK and get a feel for the bike before any longer trips.

Bike started life as a dark blue 1996 Bianchi San Remo but all the Campy components were gone when I got it. I just wanted the frame anyway. Paint and decals were in poor condition thus the repaint. Could not get a perfect match for all the original decals but it was close. The Celeste water bottles and bar tape are to add a splash of Bianch color. Maybe the Bianchi cops won't harrase me now for the repaint.

Rebuild included 9 speed Deore LX with bar end shifters mounted on Paul Thumbies, Trekking bar, Brooks saddle, Jandd racks, REI panniers and DiNoitte lights.



With panniers (empty) mounted



And with Charlie going for a neighborhood ride in his dog basket.

Hi,
Very nice bike. Love your work.
What wheel and tires did you put. What the largest tire the frame will get?
Is that frame is a touring frame?
Tnx

If you are refering to the Bianchi San Remo, yes it is a touring frame but not as heavy duty as the serious touring bikes. Largest tire I can get on it is a 700x32 without deflating the tire. If you are willing to deflate the tire to mount it, I think you could fit a 35 on it. Wheels are 36 spoke Sun CR18 that I built myself. Tires are Continental Contact. I wanted the Continental Top Contact but the 700x32 size is not available in the US yet.

Just got back from a three-day romp through the Massachusetts hilltowns and the Berkshires with my buddy. I rode this:

2006 Surly Long Haul Trucker. After almost a year of ownership, I finally got to take this puppy on a loaded tour. What an incredible bike! Highlights include the Nitto Noodle bar, Brooks saddle, and the most recent addition: a Shimano generator hub laced to a Salsa Delgado rim. This is a 32-spoke wheel, but that was no problem; I'm light, and the lack of dish makes for a very strong wheel. Touring with 1.75" tires is a wonderful experience - steep hills hold little fear with that much rubber on the road (backed up by the LHT's rock-steady handling). I topped out at 45.8 mph on a steep downhill on the way home! I will only warn against the Dia-Compe 287-V brake lever and V-brakes. The brakes are fine, but this lever is not too good. I'm switching to Cane Creek/Tektro levers and Shimano cantis sometime in the coming months.

My best friend was along on this journey, as usual, and he rode a bike too:

This is the mid-late 90's Bianchi Volpe he picked up for $300 this spring. Good find - now he just needs a front rack!

Enjoy!

Here's the latest morph of the mean machine. First I went the rear Pannier route, only to break a spoke, then I opted for a trailer and found the Nomad on sale. This bad boy is heading out for a 9 day tour in just about 3 1/2 weeks.
