Questions before my first tour



Great! That’s exactly the info I needed. Thanks a lot!


@Matthiass I forgot to mention one thing, if you have time before you take off on Sunday, go into the shop that sold you the bike and have them do a check of the bike.

Drive train, your other wheel, anything wrong with the frame that you haven’t noticed or loose bolts/screws. You never know!


@ranlee, sure, he checked all the crucial stuff when mounting the rack. Said he didn’t touch the spokes though…


Spokes was probably a bad strike of luck or too much wattage coming out of your legs.

Good to hear you got a check-up before embarking on your journey.


Broken spoke might mean the wheels need trueing? I’d guess the bike has el cheapo training wheels on it.
