I like your choice of bikes Boris. Rugged and basic. Not the fasted or most beatiful, but built to go anywhere and everywhere with a minimum of problems. Much like a Jeep

As you probably noticed, I don't have fenders on my bike, but when I'm riding in the rain they sure would be nice.

I have been camping while hiking, cross country skiing and by canoe, but have never camped on a bike tour. Judging from the pictures here and on your site it really looks like something that would be a lot of fun.

One of the important things for multi speed bikes is the transmission (number and order of ratios) just like in all the vehicle transmissions having an unfavorable relation mass : power (m:P). We call such transmissions (having at least 2 gear blocs - front and rear for bikes) complicate transmissions. Usually it is not known by bicycle producers, so often it can be seen overlapped ratios in bike transmission …. I have seen even 8 overlapped ratios in transmission having 18 speeds (as in my first bike).
There is a theory giving a possibility to choose ratios without overlapping, but I need 20 pages to describe it.
I will say only, that to avoid overlapping, the gear ratios Z/z = W (z – tooth number) MUST be ordered in a geometric progression. The index of this geometry progression for bike transmission is nice to be 1,03, or:
W1:W2:W3: ….. = 1,03. (in the transmission of my second bike, having 21 speeds, it is almost achieved).

But … it is a theory … it is much better to wander by the bike and camp in the wilderness … in fact I do not know anything better … Down is the situation in the end of the biking day … that in the plastic bottle is not juice, not nectar, not lemonade, not tee …

Boris, it's not all about quantity, it's also about quality

Almost everyone in Montreal has a bike, but I guess not too many of them know about this site yet.

Whatever you say Gramps

Sadly, I don't speak Bulgarian and can't write Cyrillic, so yes, it was Google. But the good thought was there.

Hm .... I did not know that Google translator is so wise ... I use it regularly and my opinion about it is not so nice ....
