I don't know if a rack will hold everything you need for camping. I guess it depends on how minimalist you are.
My suggestion is the BOB trailer

But but but... those are the best ones!

I'm rooting around on craigslist trying to find something to get for a reasonable price. I will be riding around in the city but would maybe like to get something versatile enough that I could take it to a trail or two.
Also, whats the deal with fixed gear and single speed bikes? When I was in Portland they seemed like all the rage...

Have you tried the fixed gears? They're fun but I can't do them for distance riding.
marmoset wrote:Chiggins, uNicedmeMan-
I noticed you are both running the Brooks saddles.
How much maintenance do you have to put into them? Have you noticed oily/greasy spots on your shorts? How long do they take to break in? I've read lots about them but everyone I know that has one just got theirs. They don't have many miles on them.

uNicedmeMan wrote:O and I've yet to try a fixed gear but I wouldn't mind.
uNicedmeMan wrote:Very. Baltimore has some shabby roads but the trucker rolls along and absorbs everything thrown at it....
Short answer- I love it more with every ride.
