    Mini Velo Touring.

    I have three bikes, but the steel rack I had sitting around would only fit my Mini Velo. So then it came to be that my bicycle tour would be on the Mini Velo Id previously acquired in Korea. Endeavoring to do the overnight trip on a minimal budget, I used the motorcycle panniers I already had.







    I was pretty happy with the results but I think I need to shake it down a little more before I commit to any big distances.

    Minis sure are goofy lookin. I want one

    Nice tour, Starship. I don`t quite understand the details, but what`s there sounds adventurous- hope you get your fit straightened out and have another go at it with the mini.

    lol@ motorcycle panniers. Can you put a front rack on it? That might help even out the feel. I never liked riding with all the weight on the rear.
    I prefer Eau de Tri-flow. Seriously, that shiz smells good!

    I raised the handle bars a little today but it still feels like I am putting a lot of weight on my hands. I think a different set of hangers is needed.
