It is Aluminum, isn't that a little odd for a touring bike?

I'll probably end up with mountain shoes for that very reason. If the ATAC cleats are SPD compatible.

THANKS for all the advice peoples.





Now what about pedals/clip ons...?

I have SPD shoes and peds but everyone tells me there obsolete compared to the new LOOK's systems, and CRANK BROS. set up.....???


?
www.nashbar.com is having a sale on some baggy gel shorts now.

I usually go with the standard 6 or 8 panel padded lycra under a swimsuit or hiking shorts.

I like the newer gel stuff. I stop for river swims a lot on hot days and
it doesnt absorb a load of water like the regular padded shorts.

I like my Time MTB cleats, they have taken a serious pounding and still work great.
Cant comment on thier road stuff, but the design is simple and works great.

BASSO update -

found out it's seat post (dura ace) was a shorty, so had to get a new one, the cassette was shot, as was the chain, and all the cables.

Carbon fiber specialized seat post - $110
dura ace chain and 9 speed cassette - $200
Dura ace cables and full tune up - $225


Still needs a saddle, pedals, and a headset / stem. So I've figured out why I inherited it........

Will probably go with a threaded adaptor to threadless for stem, new stem from Nashbar, and Crank bros. road quattro pedals.

Went for a nice ride today in the rain, was cooking on it compared to my Klein.

Cheers!

This thread has been a bad influence. I ordered Paul's Touring Cantis for my Long Haul Trucker. They should be here soon.

I also ordered Surly's Nice Racks for my LHT. I am swapping out the Jandd AL racks for CroMo. They look better designed too. I hope to see them soon.

Feh.

I had a pair of the oldschool Northwave mtb shoes. Green with blue trim on the right, blue with green on the left.

I guess Italians have trouble with right and left? Gave up on the brand after breaking several soles, they were just too thin and light to handle the riding I was doing. Now I'm on a pair of Shimmy M223s - carbon sole, toe studs and a ratchet buckle. Near pure footwear nirvana.

New saddle (san marco)

New Vittoria tires (race/train)

Padded bike shorts (24.99$)

One problem found - front mavic axle kinda wobbles in the front fork....????? Adjusting tightness of quick release didn't help.

Nashbar has been good to me for 15 years or so.

Glad to see crank bros still in the biz, upgraded my MB1 with some
of thier stuff. Great design on thier MTB cranks many years ago.
