    This is my setup for my first overnight.
    It was woefully topheavy, live and learn.
    228002_10150551773515453_3240685_n.jpg
    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.

    Jesus Christ! That thing's quite the rig! Need some water-bottle cages and a front rack!

    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.

    Went touring this weekend on my single speed 1985 Trek 420. 44x18 gearing worked out to be perfect for the trip...Florida, so the only real hills were a couple of steep bridges, though we did get into some rolling hills about 50 miles out so that was a lot of fun. I'll upload a better pic once I sort through my camera, here's a cell phone pic for now.


    I got to use my Topeak Bikamper tent too which works well as long as the weather stays above 40 degrees or so

    I forgot to share this months back in August!

    I did my first century over a route I've done twice over two days. 228km in just under 12 hours. I went for a light bike packing, bivvy set up with no stove. Gotta love sandwiches for tea!





    More snaps to be found on my blog, amongst my other adventures, here!

    Touring rig for warm weather

    My rig on coastal Maui, August 2013. It was tropical weather and plenty of places to buy food, so I packed light. I have an ultralight tent and camping gear that I can fit into one of the panniers.

    Thanks! They're 700x43 'cross tires. I'm digging the traction, but with 70psi I'm not sold on the roughness. Fast on pavement, too stiff on the trail. Need something with a bit more cush-factor.

    Very nice set-up. I like your fenders. Can you tell me who makes these?

    70psi is a lot for 43mm tires, have you tried lower pressures for the front?

    I really like this Terry. I also like the drops with bar end shifters. I got my Ogre last summer and have its first loaded trip getting planned for a combo of the Prairie Spirit Trail in Kansas and the Katy in MO next summer. I went with the stock tires that came with Ogre and it is a nice ride of forest service dirt roads, a little spongy on the pavement when I use it for my commute but a fun ride either way. I'll post a pic when I get it loaded up. It will be a different feel thatn my LHT loaded I am sure! Good touch with the Yellow bar tape to match your panniers
