My Novara Viaggio. Novara Commuter panniers in the rear with sleeping bag and mattress on top. Set of tires and a camelbak tied to the saddle's bag loops. Trek Basic panniers in the front, and an army bivy on top of the rack with a topeak bar bag to top it off.

I finally get to post a picture of my rig with gear on it... road tested and all.

I have put about 45 miles into the luggage set up so far. I get paid today so new racks will be on soon.

loaded for the shake down ride before our tour in 2 weeks for the wounded warrior project Soldier ride. Bike with rear pack and small saddle 47# Bob loaded 51#, but I pan to lose at lease 10-15# after buying some lighter gear, and coming to the realization its a bike ride not a camping trip.

I like the discs... do you think replacing any spokes on the left side of each of the wheels would be difficult? I'd like very much to covert to a front disc sometime.

Hi,
What is the model of this bike? Is it kona sutra? I see it has barcons, is it an original part of the bike?
Thanks,
Kfir

Tate, what kind of kickstand is that on your trailer? It looks very stable.

Well they aren't loaded, but it's such a good picture. We had unloaded them to set up camp for the evening. Those are the Catalina Mts in Arizona, just outside of Tucson. It was a December Tour, and a frozen tent was instore for us that night.

Here's a shot of my lightly loaded touring bike before she got S+S coupling installed for a 1.5 year SE asia tour we've got coming up.

I was trying to find a better pic of my loaded bike, but I only have two fuzzy pics. Sorry I couldn't get a better shot, but these were taken the night before my first "light" tour in my college dorm room. I packed 4 days worth of clothes and then rode 64.5 miles to my mother's house. The bike is 1985 Univega viva touring, with 42/52 chainrings and 14-28 freewheel.

Ps. the Panniers are on backwards in these photos, but it didn't matter. The bags are not secured to the rack as I had to carry the bike down a spiraling staircase first thing in the morning.

As you can see was a little cold at the time.

Keep on Cycling

That was my friends ride, I was following behind, and when that the rack bolt broke, and the rack came swinging down, I started cracking so bad I had to get off my bike.

Zip ties are what we use to hold everything together, pretty much. One thing we made sure to pack was a bag of tough zip ties. The rack was attached with zip ties after I took a few pics.
