Fully loaded I average 11mph. Hills are a beast with all the gear, but with my new gearing it is manageable. I want to find a truck weigh station and see my total weight.

Yep. Glock knife. I use it as my camp knife, latrine shovel, and for splitting wood. I like to keep it handy because some areas of the trail have a dog pack problem.

did a 120 mile trip in 8 hours of ride time in 2 days! Did some bike camping/training. Got 34 days before I leave on my CC trip. I could have gotten better time but it was the guy riding with me first time riding that far ever.

Did a three day trip to the river, wanted to go rackless. Not ultra light, about 18 pounds of gear not counting water. If I took my hammock and light bag instead I can get it down to 12.

Thanks. I leave in 29 days for my CC trip. I'm more anxious then nervous! I feel really confident in my ability to ride across and over any country! Just got a new camera yesterday!

I use that as one of my S24O camps, along with Jordan Lake SRA and if I have a long weekend Little Pee Dee State Park down near Dillon, SC.

You might want to try a run up to Jordan Lake, try and route through Broadway, NC the hills around there will give a workout, they are fairly short but steep.

yeah Ill check that out. I plan on doing one more over night before I start on my CC trip. I don't own a car a ride everyday. My commute to work is 8 miles both ways. And I got 3 hills that are 10 percent inclines or better. But yeah definitely gonna look into that thanks!

Here is a picture of my bike on my cross country trip when I stopped in Eastern Colorado:



There was still a fair amount of room in the rear panniers. I mostly got the front ones to even out the load. The dry bag on the rear rack held a small backpack (I'd take out when going into restaurants) and things like a windbreaker, etc.

Rear rack is a very old aluminum Blackburn rack. The front rack is a Jandd. Panniers are Ortlieb Classic rollers. I also had a sort of small handle bar bag.

Just finished my first true tour, 1000 miles across 3 states on this, my new Salsa Vaya. The biked performed admirably, not a single mechanical issue.

I have never seen front panniers and front rack. They are not widespread in Russia. I use two kinds of rear panniers. This is double volume 48-liter panniers.

And this is single volume 60-liter panniers.

I always use back pack and put there money, mobile phone, documents, and other valuable things.

Well, it seems that rear + backpack worked well for you.
Asphalt, I looked at the other pictures on the site you linked to. It sure looks like a nice trip, but I can`t understand Russian at all! What are the stone ruins starting at number 71? Temples, maybe?

Hey it's my first post to any of the forums! My son and I are leaving on or about June 5, San Francisco to Delaware. We may target Coney Island as our initial Atlantic Coast terminus. Here's my Soma Saga, unloaded. Once we're under way, I'll post loaded pics.

I've been itching to try some touring/bike-camping for a while,but just now getting geared up to finally give it a try (and I've drooled through this tread on many occasion,some nice setups! ). This isn't everything my son and I will carry,but plenty of room left in that empty Hoodie bag on the other side Planning our first over-nighter possibly in the next week,then I'll do some longer rides next month hopefully (pretty much all rail trails or gravel grinders for now),try out some new places for he and I (he's 10,BTW) The Trekstracycle...

Maybe are you interested in that or that? It's placed in Caucasus Mountains to south-east from Gelendzhik. It's called Dolmens or Russian Stonehenge. Thay can be found on all Russian mountain coast from Gellendzhik to Sochi and futher in Abkhazia, the disputable territory of Georgia. it's heritage of ancient civilization from 3-4 century BC. Now they are the subject for pilgrimage of esotericism devotees and simply of turists. The are many equipped parks with that temples with entrance for sale. You can read more about them in wiki.

1995 Trek 820 frame, 38/22 x 11-34 (8 speed) gearing, and Salsa Woodchipper bars and STI shifters.

Did my first overnight loaded tour weekend of 5/19/12 from the Willamette Valley (Corvallis, OR) to the Pacific Ocean (Pacific City, OR).

Day 1: 92 miles, with miles 38 through 89 supported as part of a charity ride, in 7 hours and 35 minutes total.

Day 2: 103 miles, unsupported, in 12 hours and 50 minutes total. Damn I was tired. In the future, something like this would be over 4 or so days.
