Gear

On this page we will little by little introduce our gear and answer questions.

We decided to use two Patria Terra – a classic among travel bikes. Thanks to the Rohloff Speedhub, a steel frame and 26″ wheels we should be able to handle the whole route without major incidents (fingers crossed).

 

 

Most important details:

  • Steel frame – stable, more flexible than aluminum and can be welded more easily if necessary
  • 26″ wheels – worldwide more common than 28″, also more suitable for high system weight
  • Speedhub Rohloff CC EX OEM – solid and low-maintenance (hopefully)
  • Hub dynamo SON 28
  • Saddle Brooks B17 – the classic saddle by far. Hurts the first few kilometers, but is quite comfortable after that
  • Rack: Tubus Cargo & Tara
  • Tyres: Schwalbe Marathon Mondial 55-559
