    Most just Rohloff hubs. You wouldn't see many 3-spd or 8-spd hubs on a fully loaded tour.

    Light Loaded Cross Check

    I haven't done long tours ... generally just a few days at a time. Here's my Cross Check ... taken last week on a two day over night trip.

    I love the saddlebag. Very nice. In in the process of designing my own... It's a long ways away though.

    My custom Berg touring bike, with a bit too much stuff attached to it and Mt Baker in the background. Saddle was replaced with a Brooks B-17 recently .

    Do yous want to see a TON more pictures of touring and long distance bikes? Here's a link to a German website very similar to our 'Bike Forums', and there is the equivalent sticky thread called "Unsere Rader - Teil 1(2)", which means "Our bikes - Part 1(2)"

    http://rad-forum.de/showflat.php?Cat...&page=0#280529
    http://rad-forum.de/showflat.php?Cat...&page=0#134686

    at the bottom and top of each page, look for the text called "Seiten 1 2 3 4..." Seiten means "pages", so you can continue by clicking on the next page number.

    I think it's interesting to notice some of the general differences between their setups and ours. It appears that they use a lot more internally geared hubs than we do, more generator hubs, front suspension, and trekking bars.

    Here's my Trek 7.5 fx, named Roark, set up as a touring bike:



    And here's the dashboard. Note the big bell:

    I allowed for no chance of running out of water this time. (There's a fourth bottle in the panniers as well.)



    Oh, and Neil B's new bell is impressive as it is annoying. We must now refer to him as The Bell Boy.

    Just a suggestion, some people carry plastic water bags (dromedary bags?) which they fill up when venturing through dry areas. This way you can carry a ton of water (like 7 liters) when you want to and it doesn't take up much space or weight when not in use. Useful at the campsite too.

    Thanks for posting this link! Very interesting mix of old and new touring setups.

    Here is a picture of Fong Huo Lun, one of two bikes my partner and I made for our Beijing Paris expedition
    We also made the panniers. They were OK, except I need to improve the water proofing.

    I left the baggage at home but here is my unladen short tour bike... I did several century rides on this bike last summer and
    plan on making longer rides when the weather cooperates.


    1955 Raleigh Lenton Sports fixed gear.

    OMG! My hat is off to you. I see a guy locally riding a P/F bike around town and it looks like a challenge, but to Everest(?).

    Very nice conversion. My dream is to find a nice old steel touring frame and convert it for a fixed, short-tour bike.

    Many people have thought that this bike is a conversion but it is just as it was when it was when it was sold in 1955...
