    The front panniers are 30-yr-old Cannondale bags that I retrofitted with Lone Peak mounting hooks and bungee. I always liked the functionality of the bags but never cared for the original mounting system. The Lone Peak mounting system works great and was easy to retrofit. The details are on my tumblr.

    Here's my Trek 520 loaded up for a week of riding and camping in SW Ohio. I rode from my home in Cincinnati up to the Bicycle Museum of America in New Bremen, OH. That's a really cool place!

    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.

    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.
    Axiom front and rear racks
    front bag: VO
    crankset: VO triple

    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.
