Cycle touring in Spain
  • Very understandable, doing the same route twice when touring somehow can feel like a waste.

    Stunning photo again! I opened it before I read the text and was looking for your bike in the picture for some time, since it’s a trademark ;) But now I understand. Have fun!

  • Man, that is a ridiculously good looking town. Sounds like a great time, how much of the montañas vacias route are you planning on doing?

    A good pizza after riding a bike is one of the great pleasures in life, enjoy!!

  • Rack suggestions.
  • Yeah I think the heel drag problem is bigger for me because I have the click-system pedals (shimano SPD), so the part on the axle of the pedal is relatively in front of the foot.

    I do love products that offer a good guarantee, it ends up really paying off.

  • Rack suggestions.
  • I think relatively low mounting option for panniers could be important, lower centre of gravity is important for ride quality/comfort. Also, important for you to be able to get the panniers sufficiently to the back so your heel doesn’t clip the bag. Stuff like a good light fixing spot is a nice-to-have - at least I always turn the lights on when it rains, for safety.

    If my bike had the mounting points I would have gone for something nice from tubus or a similar manufactorer, but since it doesnt I had to pay 300 euros more for a tailfin (which, as a product, is really great by the way. But prohibitively expensive)

  • Rack suggestions.
  • I’mnnot sure I’ll be of much help, I have a tailfin system. I have to say, I really love their rack top bag as it’s very convenient and well made.

    I tend to favour a durable and convenient system (usually unfortunately on the expensive side). When I’m not sure what features exactly I’m looking for Intend to buy the very cheapest option, and whilst using it work out what features are important to me. Then I buy the good stuff and give away/resell the cheaper system.

    What is the best way to safely and completely erase all data from old laptops?

    I have a couple of old laptops lying around and want to throw them away, but have been cautious to do so because of privacy concerns of data still on the hard drives. What is the best way to wipe them? Or should I take them out and physically destroy them?

    They are running windows vista and 10 I think.

    What are Lemmy's unwritten rules?
