I left an early post about a trip on the north umpqua scheduled for four
days in late July. We will be biking two days in and two days out for
approximately a 100 mile round trip on the north umpqua trail in Oregon.
We will be carrying all gear on bikes. I was just wondering what to
expect. For example I have a Specialized Expedition (probably a cheap bike
on this groups standards) that only has standard brake pads. Should I get
disc brake pads or will my brakes perform well enough for some of the
declines? Should I bring any lubricant for the chain or fork suspension?
And also what about an extra chain link just in case (I have been told that
this is something I would not need). I realize the people in this group
are probably used to more advanced mountain biking than I am and based on
the responses to my last post my trip plans with two friends (who both have
better bikes than I do) seems to have been taken as a joke. If anyone has
some good advice for preperation I would really appreciate it.
don't be so touchy - all I did was ask if you were hauling a bob trailer or
taking packs. Chain lube for cascade dust is a Duh item, as is a repair kit
and the knowlegde of how to use it.
You should be prepared for ANYTHING. If you have to ask questions like
"chain lube?" perhaps you are not adequately prepared.
