Lost, here is the windscreen I use:


Got it from ProCycle. Only sold with 7/8" brackets, but I didn't use them anyways... I made my own GPS protector and just mounted the windscreen to it instead of the bars. I really like it, it's small enough to not catch much side wind and large enough to keep most of the wind off of my chest.

APBlack, I really like my 17/19 wheelset for adventure riding. The wide rims and tires really give you a lot of confidence at speed on the pavement. I went for a 300 mile ride last weekend, it was a mix of pavement, gravel, and two track. When I did this ride on my dirt wheelset earlier this year, I was spent! The adventure wheels allow you to relax much more, they are so smooth with the heavier tires and cush drive hub. They really change the bike!

I am biased obviously, but I love my trailer! I'm building myself a new one, I'm still running the original prototype that I built. The new one has a black wheel, only the shock will be red.... should look a little better. It will also have a "backbone" to hang bags off of. The big tub I currently use is great for commuting, but it's a little big for day trips and it is not water proof. The new trailer will have Pelican cases hanging on each side or just one and roto-pax gas cans on the other side. I'll post some pictures up when I have it done.

Mike
