Cuyahoga Valley?

Nice. Grew up nearby. Rode in there long before it was the national park. Good memories exploring on my bike. Nice setup.

Bob+

This is just a bob ibex with the swingarm I made out of a troll fork. I also put in airshock on so it's more adjustable for the load I'm towing. I've also added the trailer break

This is my setup for my first overnight.
It was woefully topheavy, live and learn.

Its now sold and I'm getting a 2013 catrike trail with Utah trikes wheel extenders to equip a 26" rear. My wrists suffer horribly on an upright, my sights light up pretty quick on a trike after that 6 hours of hell
Will be equipped with rear panniers and a BOB trailer for a fully self supported tour.

Yeah it was a great bike, I just wish I had found this forum well before I went on that trip. The rack was a seatpost rack, worst purchase ever, stabilized with a conveniently bent steel bar i found lying around, screw clamped to the rack, taped like madness to the frame. Theres a pair of collapsible baskets on the rack that you can't see too well. All of it held together with bungies.
Bent the kickstand out of shape with the weight.
I did have a couple gatorade bottles strapped to the cages on the back. The red thing you see just below the seat is a bottle holster with a strap to sling it over your shoulder, nice for walks and hiking, (which we did, summited a mountain), and fits a gator bottle nicely, another on the other side.
A real hack job for my first time out but it held up.
