Hi, I'm Eddie, starting a Croatia cycle trip tomorrow with my girl-friend Laura. We're from the USA.
First, I'm looking for a Tubus LM - 1 clamp, website http://www.tubus.com/product.php?xn=32 . Can anyone suggest a good bike shop in Zagreb which could order or might stock such a part? Is Decathlon good for such a thing? I need a clamp to attach my water bottle cage to my handlebar stem, the hose clamps I'm using aren't quite perfect for the job :)
I'm also looking for a good bike map of Croatia, should such a thing exist.
Second, we're cycling around Croatia, starting and ending in Zagreb. We'd like to visit the coast. Any route suggestions?
What is the situation, truly, with wild camping in Croatia? If one makes camp and dusk and leaves at dawn, are there any real issues with camping in the forest near a bike route?
Where are there real land mine dangers? (A good thing to keep in mind when cycle camping)
Is it truly necessary to register with the police when you come to Croatia? Does one ever truly have to register with the police?
Online one would be led to believe that it's necessary to get police permission to go anywhere in Croatia, but no one I've talked to who has visited has ever had to do this...
Any advice appreciated.
