Re: Commuting and touring saddle alternatives to the old B17?

What about the Bertoud? I have B17' s and just last week returned from a 3 month Europe tour. Got my first ever saddle sore and rode with it for the last 800 miles. Not sure how I got it but during that period I was wondering about a Giles Bertoud saddle!

SKS chainguard question

Wondering if anyone has the Chainbow chainguard? Wondering how much adjustable length there is? Can't really tell from their website.
Thanks!

Re: Gates Belt Drive question.

Ivor, thanks for your reply!
Here bike has a split frame and is on Rohloff's list. Your suggestion about the Herbie is a good idea. I think I will give that a go.
The only concern I have is I can't monitor the chain to know when to take up the slack.

Re: Gates Belt Drive question.

My wife's bike has a Rohloff at present. But she has probation on her right ankle and she can't keep from getting chain lube all over. I usually use wax lube but we have been touring in Europe for 3 months and wax lube was not available when I needed more.
So thus the belt drive idea!

Gates Belt Drive question.

Considering changing my wife's touring bike to belt drive. Is there a website that would show the way to get a great inch range?

Re: Air Canada and Canada in general - well the flight was good...

Interesting as we rode across Canada 2 summers ago and the only province that had really bad drivers was Ontario.
So how far did you ride with that box on your bike?

Re: Archie's Camping??

I understand how to find lodging and camping on Cycle Travel. Maybe I was expecting more information when I searched for camping.
