Status update…


Pannier rack..check (from ribble, disc specific)

Power -on-the-go…dynamo hub and new wheel built by Ronde. USB output purchased, and being fitted to bike tomorrow. Need to order an electrical connector.

Bike pump…check

Garmin…on bike.  Black zip-ties to install measuring device – maybe ask at EdBikeCoop?  Purchase new CR2032. Also look into US maps for it.

Bottles & cages…check (from Ribble, as broke my carbon one). One 750ml bottle, one 500ml one from Kelley 🙂

Bought a new 6-rotor disc and a converter as dyno hub was centre-lock (both from SJS). Ronde built a new wheel over wknd for it, using the existing rim, and recycled the spokes (trimmed them).  The converter hasn’t arrived yet; the rotor disc is less needed. But I suppose is a perfectly good spare.

Spare tyres..check (continental gatorskins, 2x from Ribble, and accidentally also 2x from SJS)

Light-weight summer clothing…check (a set of Rapha from Ronde, and a UCI WorldChamp jersey from Ribble)

To purchase next…

  • ? Did I order inner tubes yet ?
  • saddle bag.  Pick a medium sized one, that you can use regularly when you get back.

To purchase after some more analysis…

  • cycling shoes that are less hot!
  • front bag / front of top-post bag. Depends on how much space I need — need to pack panniers first!
