Trailing Dreams of America: Conversations down the road

 

| Home | Idea | Route | REPORTS | Images | Gear |

 

I rode an Urbanite Touring Bike (awesome), fixed up with Brooks B-17 saddle and aero bars (crucial). Rear bags are huge Carradice; the fronts, Transits from Performance. I slept in a Eureka! tent in a toasty Slumberjack Bag on a Thermarest pad. For simplicity, I used regular clipped pedals and Specialized Sonoma shoes, leaving clipless gear at home. Rear rack is Tubus; front, Jandd expedition. LX derailleurs and hubs, Sun CR18 Rims (36h), friction bar cons. Conti TTs 700x32 to start, then Pacela Tourguard x32s, then Conti TT 700x37+47 to finish (damned invisible tiny wires on I-40 out west!). Gearing: 44.34.22 (f); 11-32, 8 sp (r).
