    If one were to look up my previous postings, in this thread, of this bike setup... one thing becomes apparent. It keeps getting -bigger-. Here is the fat goose, 10 months in.


    Be the change you wish to see in the world.

    Whoa! Tansy! That is quite the load. Where was that taken? Looks like Nevada. Are you a field hydrologist or making a film or something?

    I tend not to go for more than week-long tours (work) and mostly do S24Os and weekends. Here's my bike fully loaded, all I really need for a week long trip.

    Running the 6 and 7 speed wheels with 126mm dropout spacing also means that the wheels have less dish than an 8 or 9 speed wheel... the 7 speed on the folder is a Suntour Ultra 7 which is a closely spaced 7 speed that fits in a 126mm spacing. These are no longer made but I have a shop full of Suntour cogs and parts so I can build these up and service them as needed.
    good info, thanks man.

    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!

    what if you were to get one of these swivel cage mounts... would a larger bottle fit?

    Interesting... I'll have to check and see if there is even room for a 24 oz bottle with side access. I've read about people finding ways to mount a cage a bit lower on the seat tube as well, but I've been lazy. So far, 24 + 20 oz has been enough.

    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.

    Ya, well with that front basket you don't have to explain yourself to anyone. Love that style and manner of grace with which it simply gets the job done. Ride on and right on. dig it.

    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.

    Great pic! I've got to do this someday and maybe lay descriptions over the items - a visual check list to speak. But then again the dogs would probably be running around with my water bottles and trail snacks.

    I have spent a bit of time travelling around SE Asia and generally travel very light, just carry on luggage in a small day pack. I have a list I worked off for years, that slowly evolved. I nearly always took a photo like that.

    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.

    Very nice. I'm originally from the UP (Lake Superior side), and I love that little stretch of Lake Michigan just west of the bridge. We'd always stop near there for some smoked trout and a swim on the drive South from Marquette.

    Good eye. We had just crossed the bridge. We had a huge tail wind and were cruising at 18 - 20 mph most of that day...fun!! We didn't get very far west in the UP. From Petoskey we went north to Whitefish Point then headed east to the Soo locks, then looped back. It was a great tour and we can't wait to get back see the rest of the UP.

    Getting ready to do the very same thing this week, then load and go for a long ride to make sure everything is where I want it again. Headed out next week for 4 days in tri-country tour; Germany, Switzerland, and Austria with a few friends.

    Based solely on "mylenated fibre core" I'd say it's a Brit who got a bad grade in Physiology.

    That stretch of road is fantastic. We always stop for a swim with kids on our way back from Newberry, we have a cabin up there. Love the UP, hopefully will do a ride next year when I get back from overseas, ride from Roscommon to Newberry. Fingers crossed.

    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.
