So cool! I love all these Brompton tourers. Got any "zoomable" photos (that collage is a litle pixelated).

My bike in St. Mere-Eglise, France, July of '16.



A worked-over '89 Voyageur;

Bontrager front rack,
Bontrager fenders,
Racktime rear,
Ortlieb panniers,
Brook's saddle,
Trekking bar,
700c Mavic 36 spoke A719 rims
Shimano 105 hubs,
Chris King Headset,
44 32 22 chainrings,
12-36 cassette

Overall plain but functional...

And just for interest, the two Euro-tech touring bikes in the background...

sharp, St Mere-Eglise is that U.S paratrooper stuck on the church steeple village isnt it? (too lazy to look it up) Did you get to the American cemetary nearby, I'm sure you did. Worth the visit. Pretty area Normandy, one of my favorite areas in France, have good friends who live there.

Mike, I might have seen you there!

I was there with a buddy (Trek and Specialized) for the opening days of the Tour de France...been many times have D-Day veteran ancestors.

Met a nice Californian couple at my hotel, conversation led to her talking about her Dad who was a Utah Beach vet'.

Did you visit the superb airborne museum there ?

John.

Tried a new setup for a short 3 day ride.

Rear panniers on a front platform rack with a compression dry sack on the rear rack. Worked great.

Taking a break at Chief Joseph Pass in Montana in during a loop tour from/to Missoula in June and just before heading out from Brattleboro, VT for a tour home to Philly earlier this month. Going ol' skool with paper cue sheets during the latter trip.

This is a picture of my first long trip, we did 40km each day and 140 overall, it was a fun journey, but that was our first trip and we did all the possible mistakes, rigth now i'm preparing for a new trip, wil post updates as i get ready to hit the road.
I don't have panniers so i strapped my backpack on the rack, and i have a small bag i used in the front (didn't know that was a thing to do, it just happened by accident)

Trek X-caliber 7

Here is my rig from a tour last winter, from Kathmandu to Goa and Bombay.
It is a 2015 model Trek X-caliber 7 with Ortlieb panniers and bar-bag. On the rear rack is a lady-size backpack. I don't camp in India.
Tyres are 28" * 2" Schwalbe Marathon Mondials.

(If you don't see any picture here it is because it is very difficult adding an image to a post.)

Ready To Roll

I did not see much in the way of pictures of "Touring Trikes, Loaded" so hope this is allowed in this section. Catrike Road, Ortlieb panners and Bar bag, Arkel trunk bag and the side water bottle cage, fits my BT Speaker perfectly for those long, lonely stretches. The first picture is a before picture if the trike the day I picked it up. The second picture is of the trike now.

Still singlespeed, still loving it. Packed for a quick overnighter. It's a little blurry, I have to get my camera fixed.

How the hell do you get things off the bike there?? I know panniers are bulky and can be annoying with aero, etc, but goddamn I would hate to pack and unpack 19 bags off my bike!
