an american company selling thailand tires with italian branding. brilliant.
2X2 Cycles rack? I really want one for my V-Strom. It just irks me having to drive a car to a bike ride.
Completed the 3 Gap ~60 miler today...great ride and a great time with my brother. There were 2,500 other riders, and kick off was at 8:30. Very well run event with good SAG's and LEO support.
Perfect weather with a few killer climbs. Over 6,000 total feet climbed for the day crossing 3 mountain gaps.
Finished it up in a hair over 4 hours and 30 mins riding time...averaging ~13.5 mph. Not a blistering pace by any stretch, but we passed a few folks and had lots of laughs.
Can't wait to do it again.
Winchester Applecross today
Short short version: well that didn't go as planned. More news later. No. Nothing more serious than my legs not wanting to work.
That woundn't be Wolf pen gap Rd, would it? great MC road,Of course there aren't many bad roads MC wise in that area. There used tobe a Moto only campground there where 180 hits 60 I heard it was not in business anymore.
TWO-two wheels only in Suches, pretty sure it reopened.
On a lunch break in paint bank, VA I spotted three cyclists. One gentleman was riding a Renovo appalachain series. By far the most gorgeous bicycle I have ever seen. 99% certain that will be what I build at some point. It was a true work of art:eek1 I cannot accurately describe the beauty.
Same road...180. TWO is the campground and just re-opened.
So I find you in this thread. Funny thing, I never noticed it until now. Ride this week? I knowi have a couple of ball games though.
Depends, near the end I was wishing for a 17 on the rear! I run 42c tires on that bike so the gearing may be closer to 41/16 or 39/15 on a SS with 23c tires. The 39/16 allows me to cruise comfortably at 20-23 mph on flat to rolling terrain, 25 starts to get busy and beyond that I start to bounce on the seat. I have 2 other SS road bikes (Trek T1 and 2nd District) but for some reason that old battle ax if my favorite.
That's great to hear. I've been there two or three times when I've traveled through that area.
I need to take a bike tour in that area, in the next couple of years. lots o climbing ,but pretty area.
Congrats on the 3 Gap. That's a tough one. There were a butt load of cyclists on Wolf Pen Gap a couple of weeks ago when I rode the 60/129/180 loop on the Tiger. No way would I ride those roads on a bicycle. Too many nutcases on sport bikes using all of the road.
edit: BTW, Bill has done a great job with the new Two Wheels of Suches. The food and the service is better than it used to be in the past.
Hey does any one have any revelate designs stuff.I thinking of putting some bikepacking stuff on the LHT and run smaller rear panniers. A Tangle frame bag and a large seat bag, and run less stuff on rear rack. Plus I could use the stuff on the Mt Bike.
Those frame bags look good presuming they leave enough room for you to keep water bottles. I know a lot of MTB guys use the Camelbacks for water so it isn't a big deal for them but I'd rather have water on e frame than on my back if possible.
I have a Tangle frame bag that I use for long unsupported rides. It's fairly roomy, mounts securely and my legs don't hit it while I pedal. I'd like to try some bikepacking and have been thinking about adding a Viscacha seat pack. Together with my Deuter 30L backpack, I should be good for a weekend. A riding buddy has toured quite a bit with several Revelate bags and raves about them.
I ride a huge bike, a 60 cm.I've measured the distance from the top tube to where I think the bag will hang( there web site says 6" ) I should have enough room for a tall bottle on both cages,but not a 1.5 liter bottle on the seat tube.One nice thing about the LHT is it has 3 bottle cages. I hate a pack on a bike,I don't like to were one when I commute. I figure, I've spent the money on the panniers I may as well use them.
Skinny-ish tire mounted on a fat tire ride... irony?
LOL You started up near Trenton?
I have two Tangle bags... a medium and small if you want to try fit on your frame. I should be close to home all this weekend... might even take a day off this week.
I thought these were badass.
