Here's our pair: Cannondale T2 (rented from http://www.naturalhigh.co.nz), and Little Miss Surly. Not shown is a handlebar bag.
My only complaint about the 42 cm frame is the inability to use whatever size water bottles I want!

Haven't seen many folding travel bikes on this forum, I have a rekindled interest in my 98 Dahon Mariner now. Will have to think about the gearing, what parts I have lying around, etc. Very fun commuter The bike schematic is just funny for those of us who have built our own rigs.

Gotta hand it to a lot of you, you certainly are neat for your "stuff" photos, the last time I had ny things laid out before packing, it was just plain jumbly and certainly didn't warrent a photo.

Wow! This is all great!
I had set a goal to go from New Haven, CT to Charlestown, RI next summer with all my camping gear. I was fully intending on bringing a road bike. seeing all of these is making me rethink that, and maybe a hybrid would be more appropriate.

However, I have a blog over on CGOAB and thought it would make a good pic there. I have seen a few pics like this, but it was often hard to work out what they had laying around on the ground, so I thought some labels would be good.
I realized that I forgot my Kindle in that pic Have added it to my list now.

Not exactly loaded being that the bags aren't packed. Just a mock setup testing out the trek interchanges in the front and the axioms in the back.

Here's an update on my original post http://www.bikeforums.net/showthread...1#post11094211
All the changes are at the front end, where I've replaced the stock Litespeed carbon fork with a Surly LHT fork and Surly Nice Front Rack.
That's allowed me to fit Ortlieb classic front rollers, allowing me to either carry more (not the plan) or distribute my gear more evenly across the bike.
I like the Surly rack as it has a shelf on the top for trips to the patisserie
Everything else works perfectly so no need to change. Still considering a new handlebar bag, possibly an Arkel http://www.arkelpanniers.co.uk/uk/al...-bike-bag.html
Picture of me and my girlfriends touring bikes. Taken during our tour of the Loire valley. Spec on request.
Compromise breeds adventure.
I have had those same axiom rear bags for several years now and they have really held up nicely. I like the size and versatility of them for touring and commuting and weren't at all expensive. Considering Delta compact panniers for front as I have a Delta front rack, anyone here have experience with that stuff?
