You can practically hear the Indiana Jones theme blaring away . . .

The axe really makes it somehow.

didn't realize you posted on here anomaly. Such an amazing looking setup. Brooks leather tape though maybe? Gum colored brake hoods? Can't think of what might make this look better.

I post everywhere. Something like 5 bike message boards, and several different forums here on BF.

I've found a folding camp saw is much lighter and just about as useful as an axe. Sure is a beautiful setup though. Makes you look like a modern day prospector.

The axe is a nice touch! "Speak softly and carry a big stick"

A plastic one is. My mom's touring bike from the 40s or 50s had a metal battery powered lamp on the stem, it looked a little like a miners lamp.
