I'm still spending alot of time thinking about a long distance bike tour. I don't know if I'll be able to do it this year but I'm enjoying the planning process. I loaned my Trek 930 to a friend a couple of months ago. He returned it to me the other day. I've decided to build up the 930 as my touring bike. The frame is just a little small for me but I'm very comfortable riding it.
I've been spending lots of time browsing the forum and journals at crazyguyonabike.com. I was reading a question on the forum about carrying water while on tour. I don't remember the exact question but it had to do with increasing your carrying capacity, bottle cages etc. Somebody mentioned carrying 2 liter water bottles and suggested that you could adjust the positioning of your water bottle cages using an adapter from Mount Skidmore (a small Austrailian company). I'll be ordering two of these.
