    Lanovran, I have the same Axiom rear panniers and a set of the Axiom Cartier up front. They've got a few thousand miles on them and so far I love them!

    The front bags are late 90's Trek. They are ton too bad at all. They are water resistant not water proof. The rear bags are Bontrager waterproof roll top bags, they are a bit on the small side.

    What kind of pet do you have there?

    Holy Guacamole, Slack! Now all ya need is a team of 12 huskys to pull the durn thing. I'd
    flat drop dead trying to walk that rig up some of the hills around here. Ive done the PCH;
    it's not altogether level either. Didn't anyone tell you hoarding and cycling are not compatible.

    That saddlebag and rack combo is kind of heavy, but it's a lot of capacity, and handles waaaaay better than big rear panniers.

    Is that a pump attached to your front fork? Would love to see some close-ups for this setup. I'm a sucker for a Salsa with frame bags.

    Yes, it's a Topeak Road Morph. The mounting bracket is attached with zip ties and gaffer's tape. It has been rock solid through a lot of road and path miles, and some actual mountain biking. I have an anything cage on the left fork leg that I used for my sleeping pad and bag liner on that trip, which was Pittsburgh--Cumberland--Pittsburgh on the GAP trail.

    Garbletron! has some more photos, but no real closeups.

    http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-VSCBGfUC97...0/DSC_8830.jpg

    is the closest picture that I have posted anywhere online.

    The cockpit is dominated by Revelate stuff. A Gas Tank, and two mountain feedbags. The feedbags make removing the pocket on the front of the Sweetroll a pain in the butt, so I'll probably just stop using the pocket, since I barely had anything in it anyways, and it's hard to get into while it is mounted because of the outer loop of the Jones H-Bars.

    I really like the way you flipped the locations of the Ortliebs front to back on your bike. After a short trip with big rear panniers, I ended up a big fan of trying to be more balanced or even front loading my bikes.

    Yeah, I also like the panniers flipped, but I'll probably only use all four at once when I'm touring with my girlfriend, or if I'm doing some deep-winter touring. By myself, I can get by with just two small front panniers or the frame bags alone.

    You may be convincing me to get the Revelate Top Tube Bag.

    Thanks for the close-up; I see exactly what you're talking about now. I'll check out your blog!

    Cheers, and welcome to the forum

    Finished project, and it now has been tested a few times as well. I increased my low range to handle the hills of Pa or anywhere for that matter. But i now have a 10 speed range from 11 or 12 to 32. I'm pretty pleased. Although i do get a whistle on the front that i have yet to determine but riding into a breeze is starting to drive me crazy! But here's my rig.
    Details:
    frame and fork. Velo Orange Campeur
    stem: ugly as most people feel, but i chose an Uno adjustable. My choice.
    Handlebars: Nitto Randos
    Brake levers: Tektro
    Brakes: Avid shorty's brakes
    cages: VO
    Wheelset: VO RAID 700c
    tires: Soma C-lines 700x38c
    fenders: nothing fancy, black (which is what i like) and just some standard but durable plastics
    front and rear derailleurs: SunXCD
    cassette: 10 speed IRD, 11t - 32t
    saddle: Altair, they are very comfortable and i have come to love mine.
    seat post: TruTaviv
    front and rear panniers: Axiom Cartier Dluxe and Axiom Randos
    h-bar tape: Newbaums cloth.
    cockpit: some Minoura add ons for my Spurcycle bell and other gizmos.

    This is loaded up for 5 days out and back including a two person tent w/ trekking poles, about 3 days worth of food, and a big ol beach towel which could all be downsized easily. Its a fine rig for a trip through central FL to Rainbow Springs camping along the Withlacoochee River but I'm thinking if I do some sensible swaps and leave the towel at home I could easily get across the country on this rig.

    I know it's not technically loaded for a TOUR, but it has some essentials in my "commuter panniers." This is my love when she's in her commuting getup

    Velo Orange fenders
    Racktime front rack

    I have big Arkels for actual touring, plus a handlebar bag not shown. Will probably get a Tubus Tara front rack when I do some real long-distance rides plus a couple more panniers.

    2014 Switzerland - Grosse Scheidegg Pass

    Just returned from my 10 day tour of Switzerland. I started in Zurich and finished in Geneva. Below are some pictures of my favorite day of the tour. My ascent and descent of the Grosse Scheidegg pass. My route that day was: Brienz to Meiringen to Grosse Scheidegg to Grindelwald to Lauterbrunnen. Absolutely spectacular scenery.

    My bike is a Surly LHT. I recently added a new fork and disc brake. Very glad I made this change. My front disc brake was burning hot on the descents.

    Pic 01 - Clock tower in Brienz
    Pic 02 - Climbling the Grosse Scheidegg
    Pic 03 - Small bridge over the stream.
    Pic 04 - Spectacular views around every turn.
    Pic 05 - Enjoying a brief flat section of the ascent.
    Pic 06 - Mountain wall with the top of a Glacier visible.
    Pic 07 - Picture opportunity or excuse to rest. Many of each.
    Pic 08 - Bike at the summit of the Grosse Scheidegg.
    Pic 09 - Mourning view from the campground in Lauterbrunnen.
    Pic 10 - Picture of the Jungfrau, Monch and Eiger. Taken from the village of Murren.
    Pic 11 - I took the bike by Gondola from Lauterbrunnen to Murren. Ready to decent back to Lauterbrunnen.
    Pic 12 - A view back towards the mountain across Lake Thunersee from the town of Thun.
