Bikes and equipment - Part 1

Traveling light is the aim

We will be staying mostly in pensiones, and albergues. so only bare minimum cycle equipment, spare clothes, toiletries, sleeping bag etc are required.

Bike 1 - Bens Bike

Bike 1 - Voodoo Wanga
Voodoo Wanga - 631 Reynolds chromoly tubing

Built up with 3x9 XT group set, and xtr race wheels

Most of the parts I had lying around from an old bike, so just needed to buy a frame to build up.

Chromoly ridgid voodoo brand fork

Racks are freeload - sportdeck model

Teamed with 2x Ortlieb back roller classic packs on the back

And an Ortlieb handlebar bag, to stash the valuables and some food whilst riding.

All up the setup weighs in at around 14kg unloaded, still to fully load up, hopefully it comes in around 18kgs which is still pretty light, but wont be as quick up the hills as the carbon race hard-tail!
