This is Fidelis, thus named after it carried me 2000 miles on a roundabout path from DC to Utah. This bike really wasn't built for touring but we made it anyway, despite a bent rim and four broken spokes along the way. I know, I know, I really shouldn't have been touring with a bent rim but I was determined and made do with what I had. I even made my panniers out of backpacks, which was much cheaper and only a little more inconvenient.

This is me and my trusty Motobecane in Greece just before tackling the Pindos mountains. A photo from my European tour in 1984. I think the panniers cost me a grand total of about $20.

So that is what a Surly "blacktacular" bike looks like. Its the first photo I have seen and it is very, very sharp. Are you running 26" or 700c wheels? I cannot tell from the photo.

Thanks,
Bob

my bud and I don't have time to do multiple day trips, so we do a few overnighters a year. Here's this weekends ride from Meriden, CT to Salem, CT (41 miles) to camp at Witchmeadow Campground. We had a great time:



we crossed the second oldest continually running ferry in the country, the Chester Hadlyme ferry:




that's the Nashbar touring bike's last ride. Currently ganking parts off it that I prefer to put on the newly arrived Windsor Tourist. Hope to have the Windsor on the road this weekend. Nashbar tour bike will be sold. It's been a great bike.

This is my 2006 Jamis Aurora not far from Chinook Pass, in Mt. Rainier NP. I didn't actually need to go to Chinook, but since Cayuse was such a let-down after climbing for two hours, I had to go to the bigger, better one around a few corners! Besides, what's another 800 feet after a few thousand?

^ Nice, the traveller's check seems like the perfect all around bike.

It seems that now days the airlines are charging for a second checked bag, so you still have to pay to put the bike on the plane?

I did a survey about it a couple of days and found that if you travel with two bags (one bag being the bike) it's cheaper but once it gets to three bags (one being the bike and two being luggage) then it's nil. The third bag cost as much as a bike. The difference between two bags or one bag and a bike box is about $100 per leg. This is according to Delta and United fairs. I got the exact numbers somewhere and could post them (in a better thread) if you want me to.

Travelers check and one checked bag and carryon has been working for me. If i were truly minimalist i could try checked bike and carryon only but the bike luggage makes that a bit impractical as far as i can tell. travelling with a cheap suitcase or a duffel from a thrift store you can discard and buy a duffel for return leg.

some flights i've paid 25 bucks, someone was telling me with my american express card on some airlines i can book with luggage sans fee but i haven't investigated that fully.

I can fit a folding rack in the bike box; i may travel with two thin ortlieb frontroller plus panniers at the bottom of my carryon for a future trip.

pic of bike in hawaii without racks on a trip, as i was gentlemans touring .....condotocondo.

I still have a Long Haul Trucker for fully loaded touring and when i want to bring the lawnchairs or other recreational equipment....

can't wait to post this up loaded... It should be put together and tuned by this Sunday. Just picked up black handlebar tape for it at lunch. The Pasela's look better than blackwalls don't they?

edit:

did a 6 mile shakedown run to Home Depot for two gallons of Thompson's Water Seal:





It feels heavier than the aluminum frame Nashbar touring bike, but the ride is nicer.

On the pass between Kan Ding and Mo Xi Zhen at 3975 m. Wonderful road, with two lanes of beautiful concrete, a car every 15 to 30 minutes. Start at 2500 m, then over the pass at 3975 m, then down to 1700 m.
