I can`t see much of your Missus, Kabuki. The sign behind your intrigues me, though. Where were you? Looks like the Castillian "os" with the Portuguese thing about putting "se" where I wouldn`t expect it as a Spanish speaker. Galicia?

Alde hemendik! is Basque. It means "Get out of here!" and is aimed at the figure to the right, a Spanish Civil Guard.

Ni se os quiere ni se os necesita
is Spanish for "You are neither needed nor wanted".

Obviously, not a very good Spanish speaker
The construction throws me for a loop. Thanks, Ekdog.

You're too modest, I'm sure. You're probably not used to the second person plural pronoun, os, not used on your side of the pond.

very nice. I like the second set of brakes. I also use two stems, but didn't think of using it for a mirror. Good thinking.

Thanks. I seldom ride on the drops so the inline brake levers get more workout than the main brake levers. I actually just finished replacing my mirror with a D+D Oberlauda Ultra Light Bike Mirror. The mirror on the extra stem kept getting in the way when I would move my hands to different positions on the handlebars.

Most of my trips are 2 or 3 day trips. I am looking at retirement this year so I will have the time to take some longer trips. Both of these are from Pine Creek Rail Trail in north central PA.

This was my 2011 setup.


This was the setup in 2012.

Me and my Croix de Fer (And mah dug) on a cheeky stop-off at home, on route to Findhorn then Inverness via the Cairngorms. One of the most lovely, although surprisingly lonely tours I've ever done.

(ie, touring solo is harder than I imagined!)

Ahaha, no (: I'm a photography student at the Edinburgh College of Art so like to indulge in shooting on film when I can. The whole trip was shot on a Rolliecord TLR, 120 camera. I will post a link to the blog post about the trip when I finish writing it (:

What kind of rear bag are you using? I like the mini-panniers.

I actually made those panniers. I have access to a clothing.textiles manufacturing facility, so g made them. They worked well for day trips and one night trips. I just upgraded to some axiom Cartier dlx. Bu

t these worked well. I made about three of them and sold the other two in no time. I was told i was selling way too cheap for USA made panniers. But i only did it as a fun project. I sold them for 38 shipped and do no have any plans to do it again

I see. I recently got the Axiom Paddywaggon (http://www.axiomgear.com/products/ge...ywagon-exp-19/), but the mini-panniers that come with that bag are not as large as the pictures on their website seems to indicate. I like the extra storage room the mini-panniers provide, without having to carry a full-size pannier.
