Did a ride from Seattle to Portland this last weekend. Two nights of stealth camping and some questionable weather. Was lots of fun. My first time riding with a handlebar bag and I can't imagine not having one. Love my Paloma

I have a 2014 Surly Disc Trucker. Here's what it looked like during my 4-5 month (first ever) tour in 2016. The big stuff in trash bags on the back is my tent and sleeping bag. Given what I know now, I probably could have not taken quite a few things and made room in the panniers for the tent. I also since got a down sleeping bag that compresses to the size of a cantaloupe. Live and learn.


On the ferry to Deer Island, New Brunswick (I think)




After getting into Ottawa in the pouring rain with no place to stay. Ate at a diner across the street and then a Warmshowers host saved my ass.

antmaster5000, I love that Centurion! It reminds me of this old Miyata I saw someone touring on in Nova Scotia. He said he wasn't able to put very big tires on it, but I guess yours was originally built for touring. How big are those tires? Does it have Suntour derailleurs? How well do those brakes stop in the rain?

Here is the new ride, not "really" a touring bike but it will do until I decide if I want to do more of it. Photo is taken fresh out of the shop, when I get back home in a few days I will edit and add a photo of it with the racks and bags on. 2018 Cannondale Quick 5 Disc.

Someone likes Ortlieb bikepacking gear

Is that the 2018 seatpost bag or the older one? I have the 2017 bag and I worry that it would stay raised if i packed it to capacity like that. However, you have a rear rack so it looks like you have that covered. Cool setup nonetheless.

Ortlieb now sells a support strap,which I use to deal with that issue. It's not perfect but it does help. I'm not sure which model year it is. What's the difference? I ordered it in June.

Yeah I use it in the winter as a road bike with 700c wheels hence the power meter. To hell with all the roadie rules with matching this and that, especially groupset parts. Currently I have an SLX cassette, XT rear derailleur, Ultegra calipers and FD, Dura Ace shifters(free warranty replacement upgrade of the Ultegra shifter pcitured here because Shimano didn't have any in stock), 105 crank arms. So it's all over the place in that regard.

Oof, 111 pounds, that's a spicey meatball!!
i reckon that must be 80lbs of stuff on the bike. Seems at the time of the photo you had lots of spare food on back, was there a lot of extra water as well?
I've found that study guys like you can perhaps live with this weight, but as a light guy, I generally haven't gone past about 60lbs, and that was at the far end of extreme with extra water and food.
hope the trip was fun.

Ha! Now I know why I like reading your posts in the mechanics section. Here I am at start of ACA's Great Divide Canada trip in July. I'd guess 80-85 pounds though and I have the blue masking tape on my stem not my seat post.
