    There are some great looking rides on this post. I have a photo of my loaded single but I like this photo better. Here is a photo of our Road Runner (2000 Vision VR85) just before leaving for a long weekender.

    Here's my not yet loaded bike. It's an early ninties Jamis Dakota I modified into a tourer. I don't have all the panniers and other stuff but that's coming. I was just excited about completing the build and it rides like a dream with the new Brooks Conquest saddle and 26 x 1.25 tires.

    edtrek, did you find it difficult to get used to a saddle without "nose"? I have only briefly tried riding one and to me it felt fairly awkward. It seemed make steering and handling more difficult.

    Good question about my Easy Seat, it does take a bit of getting used to. It moves as you pedal and you're not mounted on the bike as much as you're dancing with it-- that was my early impression, but after 10+ years on it I'll never ride anything else. But you can't take you hands off the handlebar.

    This seat was recommended by my doctor after I encountered an injury due to a slightly nose-up conventional saddle. This is probably TMI, but if you want to read about it I have a page dedicated to this seat at: http://www.thirdwave-websites.com/bike/easy-seat.cfm

    I'm a bit of an evangalist for this seat- I think all the people with bikes unused in the garage because the seats weren't fun should try one of these. They cost around $25. I put 2000 miles a year on mine.

    Cheers, Ed

    My Gunnar Crosshairs loaded for Mexico to Peru trip.

    Fully loaded with tent and stuff for 6 months

    Neat bar bag i found to put my maps and GPS in so I could see it all while cycling

    How the bike is now, battered but still going strong. I have changed the rack to one that take a kiddy seat for my daughter.

    My 2002 San Remo, outfitted here for grocery shopping, not touring (I just got my camera), and soon to be replaced by a more appropriate heavy tourer--a Mercian King of Mercia custom.

    Hello, Love your Atlantis, that's my dream bike. Your setup is comparable to what I want. What is your height? I am 5'6" tall and will need a custom sized frame with 26" wheels.

    Rivendell Atlantis, Cannondale Crit bike, Bianchi Incline, and soon, a Kona Kula Deluxe. Oh, and a Lemond Buenos Aires frame, and a Bridgestone MB3 frame, both awaiting some sort of build-up.

    Thanks.
    I am 5'10" and the Atlantis is a 54.5. Unfortunately there is no such thing as a custom-sized Atlantis frame. They are production bikes, not custom Rivendells. The wait on a custom Rivendell is something like 18 months now. However, at 5'6" you should have no trouble fitting on one of the production Atlanti. And at your height (and mine) you'll be getting one with 26" wheels. Only the larger sizes (above 56 I believe) have 700cc wheels.

    More info, including how to size yourself for an Atlantis, here:
    http://www.rivendellbicycles.com/htm...tisframes.html

    Good luck.

    Here are two shots of my rides. The Bianchi is loaded for an dry run to a local state park. I busted the seat stays, and had to abandon the trip is was planning. the Trek is semi loaded, a day trip into Paris, a stop at the Eiffel Tower just to say I was there. What a cool trip.

    Here's mine... working on a low budget. This will be the setup for a trip this spring. The long thing on the rear rack is a camera tripod. I'm still debating on whether to carry the gray camera mount with me. It's made of wood, not weatherproof, weighs about 1kg, and obstructs my hands. But the view is uncapturable anyhow else.

    No the bike was steel. I learned after I'd gotten rid of the bike that I could have had it welded by the factory. Huh, the things we learn. I used the heck out of that bike. I commuted everyday for a year on that bike, through snow and rain, and began training for a tour on it. It is the bike that I started riding on and thought it would actually be possible to tour on a bike.
    there is one more bike that I have toured on that was a Gary Fisher Sphinx, that was just a bit small for me. I sold it to a friend who'd had her commuter stolen out of her mother's car. I'll try to find a pic of it loaded.

    Well according to many in this forum, your could have gotten it welded by any bumpkin in Nepal or any other BFE place. But wait, the frame is steel, how could it break? Oh, not lugged, that's why
    Just a few digs for the steel frame advocates, all in fun, lighten-up.

    Maybe you could get one of those helmet cameras, the small digital types. I like your bike, I think you may have more accessories than mine!

    Thanks I've gone through all the camera mounting decision making process, and decided to use what I made and nothing else Although I bought a Clamperpod and I may use that instead. Not for a long duration of time though.

    I love Way's bike. It's pure function, but it also has that postapocalyptic "Mad Max" element to it.

    My moots ybb in loaded touring dress last winter in Mexico/Guatemala/Belize: S&S couplings (great for packing up and avoiding sketchy areas - old inner tube sections keep the crud & sand out), Rohloff Speedhub & chain (troublefree), Brooks B17, old Marz Z1 fork, Ortlieb Front/Back Rollers, Old Man Mountain Cold Springs F/R racks, Schwalbe Marathon XR (no flats but _very_ heavy and slow), Outdoor Research 6-pack cooler (muy importante!), Cane Creek bar-ends, BMW Shinburger pedals with nice big platform for tropical riding w/flip-flops. Who's in a rush to get to the next sandy beach, right? Not as fast or as comfy riding position as a traditional touring bike, but suspension and big tires open up a lot of options for taking the back roads or trails to avoid buses and crazy drivers on narrow mountain roads. Also nice for unloaded leisure rides when staying in old colonial towns paved entirely with rough, gut-shaking cobblestones...

    cheers,

    That's a nice looking rig Richard. That's one thing I like about MTB conversions... they have the look......
    My stumpjumper conversion will be finished this Thursday, except for the racks which are causing me some grief.... but I'll get some pics of her up on Thursday in the "almost ready to tour" form...

    This was my first overnight ride and we went from Pittsburgh to DC over 3 nights (June 2002). Mine is the one in the front. My panniers were sewn together about 7 hours before we left. They were a mess but I got through it. My main problem was going on the C&O trail with thin tires. 4 flats within an hour on our hundred mile day. One tire on the verge of a sidewall blowout. The bike ended up getting stolen out of my basement while in a shipping box after it was sent back home. Now I have finally been able to piece bits and together to go out again this summer and I'm excited!
