    Halo Twin Rail 28's

    I highly recommend Halo Twin Rails...Universal Cycles carries them here in the states. They're made for both road and trail.

    In preparation for a tour beginning at the end of the year I'm getting in some longer rides with some weight in the mountains and messing around with various bar ends to see what I like. These Ritchey bar ends were pretty good but I still feel the need to get the bars narrower in order to have them feel right. However, having the bar ends at the appropriate width makes the regular grip postion feel very narrow and I'm not sure what compromise to make.

    You could put the bar ends inboard of your grips/shifter/levers so you could have the wider flat bar position and a narrower bar end cruising position. This might be an ok compromise unless you intend to use the bar ends for power climbing position.

    Or keep those there and put another set inboard to give even more options.

    My Latest Surly



    Surly Steamroller. 56cm. Gravel Grinder. Commuter. Dirt Road Explorer.
    I have already gotten rid of the stock Surly Open Bars. Currently running an Easton flat bar and will soon be running some Race Face drop bars. Just waiting on my brake levers to come in. I'll cut the fork down once i decide on my final stem/bar combo.

    Full specs. On my blog.

    Well, I sold my Karate Monkey. Fully ridged just wasn't for me once I relocated to Colorado. I tried to make it work by throwing a Reba on the front but it still didn't work well for me. Anyway, I built up a Spearfish to take over xc duty. And of course I still have my trusty daily, the Cross Check.

    Bikes with front and rear racks look great, very utilitarian. Nice LHT.

    Agreed, although I'd say the bike needs fenders. But maybe the poster lives somewhere where it's dry in the summer.

    Very nice looking LHT.

    LHT and Mt Hood.

    Went on an overnight bike camping trip with a friend into the Mt Hood National Forest. We ended up exploring a dirt FS Rd which was quite the adventure. Well, maybe not an adventure but a really good time. Stayed at an abandoned campground. The next morning we finished the rest of the road which spilled us out at High Rock with a fantastic view of Mt Hood. We ended up taking a gravel road down to Timothy Lake and then bombed down quiet paved FS roads to the Clackamas River. I love my LHT. While it was at its limit on some of the dirt sections of the FS road, it otherwise handled the trip just fine. I think one of the things I love most about it is its stability at speed. I've never experienced shimmy on this bike. I guess the one thing I'd change is that if I were doing it over, I probably would go with the 26" version.

    We rode FS Rd 4610 which starts right off of Hwy 224 by Prometory Park. Rds 57, 58, 46 and 42 are all fantastic paved FS roads. Rd 42 is about one of the best roads ever. Look at Google maps. I'll try and post a map of our route here later today.

    Lolo Pass is also a great road that heads up out of ZigZag and goes over towards Parkdale. From the summit of Lolo Pass it turns to dirt as you drop down towards Parkdale. It's great. Nice views of the Mtn. Just grab a map and explore. It's hard to get lost out there on the FS Rds as they all lead somewhere, or nowhere, in which case you just backtrack.

    Picked up a Pacer frameset for cheap on Craig's and built up with some new and used bits and pieces. Rides well and looks good.
