I am relatively young, 23. You see, I was a rider of big, cheap, ugly fat tyred psuedo mountain-bikes, even on flat roads. Before I got into touring I had basically never even seen a drop bar, until I was struck by lightning, three times, and miraculously mended my ways.

This is my new Trek 520, on its maiden tour along the Donau Radweg. The photo was taken just outside of Melk, Austria.

Here's my baby, a Cannondale Cyclocross Disc
I took it into the Rockies with default cyclocross gearing which proved to be a very bad idea, but I did it, and I averaged 85 miles a day

Shameless self promotion of a newspaper article, but it does have the bike in it!

Nice...Is that a 54cm? If it is, if you don't mind me asking, how tall are you? I'm trying to figure out if I would be better off with a 52cm or 54cm.

This is my second rig of the tour - the first one got stolen about 6 hours north of Paris, and the Gendarmes recovered it, but the theives had CUT THE CHAINSTAIS to steal the bike, so the frame was ruined. I spent 10 days in paris trying to track down a cheap/ suitable frame to move all the parts from the original over to - thank god I can speak french, though I had to learn an entirely new bike vocabulary.

She's a 1960s era pre/proto-cyclocross bike with canti bosses. Downtube shifters, as I prefer (simplicty = security on a long tour), and really pretty lugs. I did about 750km on my first frame and have put about another 750 on this one. Another 4000 instore I believe.

Rocking 4 panniers and a handlebar bag-
Front pannier L: tent & sleeping bag
Front Pannier R: clothes/ rain gear/ book & journal
Rear pannier L: FOOD! map bag
Rear pannier R: camping stuff (stove, cookset, mug, thermarest, plastic bags
Handlebar bag: easy access food, valuables, camera, keys, lights
Back rack - bike polo mallet, on road washing machine (tupperware w/ soapy h20), locks

However, you carry a polo mallet with you on tour? what kind of ungrateful bike polo players will not lend out a mallet to someone rolling in on a loaded touring bike?

Too true - the guys I played with in paris supplied bike AND mallet.

Having my east van mallet provides ample 'bike lunatic' credentials upon arriving in a new city, but I'd say its highest value is as a conversation piece!

This is as loaded as my roadie has been so far, and on the longest trip/short-tour I have done so far (Toronto -> Niagara Falls and back the next day):

Before I left Niagara Falls:



Last but one major stop for a food/rest break in Burlington at Lakeshore/Lakeshore.



I kept bananas and TP bungee'd at the very top of the rack for ease of access - I know from two short weekend trips now that I would *really* appreciate a handlebar bag with a route/cue sheet window. Having to stop just to get a snack or take a quick look at the map is incredibly annoying and as I found over the hours, time consuming. All good learning for when I plan to get a dedicated tourer (this roadie is my everything bar snow bike including daily commuter).

This is my 2007 Cannondale T2000 just as I was heading out on a 9 day 1050 km
tour around Lake Ontario. 1 day of riding in the rain, 1 day trying to cross Toronto and surviving it but 7 days of perfect cycling weather.
