[Tour] "Talk to Me" tour and Surly's Long Haul Trucker
This couple has been riding a "Talk to Me" tour; it's a great idea that I'd love to try sometime.
"We've been blown away by all the lovely strangers we've met and stories we've heard," said Wetzel, 25. "It's like a real-life chat room. It's really an absurd art we're learning, from when to say hello, and when to ask a question."Speaking of touring, I need to start thinking of a project to while away the long winter months. Building up a touring rig seems like a no-brainer, as I really want to do an EPIC (at least a month) ride before I get old. A good touring bike needs to have a good touring frame, and IMO the Surly Long Haul Trucker is totally sweet. Why? Touring geometry, all the braze ons, a long wheelbase, and it's steel.
