Yeah, they do Azesty! Here's the Trout contemplating jumping off a bridge and swimming upstream while on tour in Louisiana.

Not loaded, but at least one will be loaded for touring this summer!

The first one is my new LHT built for Touring


The second one is my girlfriends LHT built for day to day use, as well as occasional touring.

I just finished making my bags, so decided to take a look at the finished product all set up.
They are heavy canvas trimmed with leather and treated with a beeswax and linseed oil mixture for waterproofing.
They will be tested this weekend on my first trip.
I documented the construction of the 4 panniers and handlebar bag on my blog, More Than a Bike; A Journey into the Unknown.

Those panniers are Zimbale saddle bag that i change it to panniers for small but important stuffs during sunday ride/longer tour.

I also use their big brother(18L saddle bag) for daily use too.








And that top tube bag is Vincita, product from Thailand's company.(now they improve their product and change logo too.Their new products can be seen here.)

Duke-where was your photo taken? Just curious.
Sorry for late reply, this was near El Calafate in Patagonia.

Fully Loaded Hunqapillar

I got my new Rivendell Hunqapillar out for an overnight "shakedown" and it was a great ride.

Here are some photos of it loaded and most of what's on it.

Nice bike, but looks like your front rack needs to be leveled.

Taken 6am on my first tour after a night of heavy t-storms, and after 15 hours of heavy rain, not much is water proof.

Learned a lot that day.



I didn't realize how heavy the loaded bike was until I took my friend's mountain bike for a ride last week.

Marmakarm,
Great idea to use the Zimbale bags as panniers. I never thought of that. I wonder if putting the buckle inside the bag would allow you to cinch the straps down and make the bags more secure? Are you posting a journal of your trip?
