The Bike Shop / Road touring gear? Touring advice?
« on: November 11, 2016, 02:42:14 PM »
need some good touring gear  for my fairdale as I'd like to get into the whole bike packing thing. Northern California has some amazing wildlife and I'm finding my bike to be great for climbing and long distance. Maybe some of your can chime in on the gear you use, packing methods, supply lists, etc. I know it's a bit trendy judging but it's a whole lot cheaper than the whole VW van life bandwagon.

Anyways I really was needing good front rack advice. I have been looking at the Soma Porteur Deluxe rack. Pretty sure it is compatible. Would like something without fences and a big platform. Seems like a good "right in the middle" rack. Not flimsy and weak and not some handcrafted over built accessory.

Also been looking into Jandd since I have one of their saddle backs which is quite nice. This seems like it may fit my fairdale a little better style wise but I think I'll like a bigger platform from the Soma.

As far as the whole camping thing, I've never done it before let alone on a bike. I've been doing a lot of reading online into what different people do but I still wanna hear anything I can. Was gonna buy a small heat source to use a pot or skillet and bring small things like coffee, snacks(protein/carbs), dehydrated meals (trader joes has some good stuff that's shelf stable), and some thing sweet. I've read it's a good idea to eat but it seems like cheating. There are a lot of campsites around me but I'm curious if people lock their bikes when they nod off and keep the bags/gear close( this will probably be my course of action ). Could use a nice tent recommendation. Obviously something that packs away small and is affordable. I'll  be honest I'm probably gonna go get a book on camping because I feel a bit in over my head since I've never been camping but I'm very excited to plan trips for this spring.

Chime in here guys!

Have any of you used/owned any of those Chrome OS laptops? I'm looking to upgrade to something newer and more compact. Most of my work is web based but I am downloading a lot of PDFs for shipping labels. Worth investing in one of these or going with a more compact windows 8 laptop?

I was looking at this HP Chromebook

Bike Gallery / Bikes you miss
« on: February 25, 2011, 09:47:04 AM »
In this thread you will post bikes that have been stolen, sold, parted out, or are gone for whatever reason that you miss with all your heart.

Well I'll start it off. This was my 05 T1 SFA that was(im not proud of it what so ever....)stolen outside a Taco Smell a few months back. Awesome bike, had a few year old slams, some bluesix, fairly new rear wheel, BRAND new tires, and those awesome brown Fit seats. Not to mention Charles for b6 had this frame before me. Anyways I'll stop depressing myself.....

Some riding photos of me on it:

Post up that girl you lost!
