    tspoon and dukearcher, here in Montreal our neighbours are Kiwis, and part of the family were back home when it happened, but also were up on the north island. I havent followed the news too much for the last week because of family vacation, but it was being reported about how much of downtown Christchurch was going to have to be rebuilt due to safety concerns.

    Duke-where was yourpostprod.jpg photo taken? Just curious.

    This isn't mine but I love the spirit behind the setup. I met the owner while touring the West Coast and came to find that she has toured all over the world. Easily in her 60s, I was impressed she was able to manage this unconventional load along the hilly coast.

    This should be a lesson to all who are wrapped up in endless gear questions and always looking for the next best thing (myself included)--just get out there and RIDE!

    I HAD to go look again - then it took a couple of seconds. I wouldn't go to far as to call it a pannier - but what the heck..... if it works for her, who cares what others think.
    Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm.

    My Masi Randonneur (2011). From what I read they changed this year's model to include three chainrings and downtube shifters. I just added the Ortlieb panniers and love the whole setup, next I'll add a front rack and more panniers, woohoo!

    Two beautiful bikes posted today! I like each of them for different reasons. The Masi has a great classic look to it and is very affordable. I also like the semi-horizontal rear drop outs on it so one could run an IGH if they wanted. I might check my LBS to see if they have on in stock to look at. The Co-Motion is just incredible as well. Love the color, accessories, everything! I like the painted stem as well...great touch. Enjoy those bikes!

    My rig

    This was taken right before my first shakedown tour. Trek Hybrid 7.2 fx. I'll be upgrading to 36 spoke wheels.

    This was taken two days ago on a short tour (my first) from Birmingham (UK) to Brecon (Wales). I had to carry my mates stuff as well, but when i leave for Europe in a few weeks i shouldn't need quite so much stuff!

    Ant, everything looks so nice and green (over here the snow is still melting and today we are getting a surprise March 10 or 15cms.....)

    How long did it take to get from Birmingham to where you went. I ask because my sister lives in Aberystwyth and Im curious to your travelling time. I had never thought of taking my bike if I ever visited, but your post makes me wonder....I know its bloody hilly around her neck of the woods, so I would hazard a good 3 or 4 days to get there from Birm. I seem to remember its about a 3 or 4 hour train ride from Aber to Birm.

    cheers

    Birmingham to Brecon (95 miles) took one and a half days. It certainly got more difficult in Wales because of the hills but the views made it all worth while! I'd expect Aberystwyth would take 3 to 4 days. We timed the weather absolutely perfect. If the weather hadn't been so nice it may have taken us and extra day!

    ta for the distance and guesstimate to Aber. I agree on hills, hard work but lovely views. I dont expect to visit my sister anytime soon, but the idea to fly into Birmingham and then ride to her place is an interesting idea. All the best with your continent trip, you certainly have a good setup of bike and equipment, have a great time.
