2 Day trip to Bintan

A short 2 day trip to the island of Bintan presented itself as a chance to try out the ChangeBike in "credit card touring" mode.
Roads there are generally in good condition with lots of undulating terrain, heat and headwinds.
Day1 would be a 90km ride to the local hotel and Day2 a ride to the ferry terminal at 60km.



"Credit card" touring mode


The short trip did not need much in terms of luggage, so the bike was setup for its purpose.
A Carradice Pendel (total : 11 liters) would be far more than sufficient for 2 sets of clothes, a sandal and some toiletries (with the assortment of bike spares of course).
A Carradice Bagman saddle rail mounted quick release support provided the support for the large saddlebag.

I needed more real estate on the rails to mount the Bagman as well as keep a forward riding position for my sizing needs, so changed out the saddle to a Selle Italia Mitica.
