And the end conclusion was to go "Touring"
So in the end I went around the metro to purchase these equipment for the coming double epic and a half ride.
|Topeak Drybag Panniers|
|Exustar Waterproof Top-Tube Bag|
|Continental CityRide 26x1.75 with Reflex|
and a seatpost mounted rack with pannier mounts
I'm so happy with my purchase despite the added 12kg. weight to my current rig. With the CityRide on, the weight was nothing. As I rolled faster than I was on Race King 2.0s
In the near future, I'll have my Diamondback Ascent converted to a touring bike, so that all my epic trips will be done on that bike. And all my trail rides on the Vision Pursuit.
It's actually very tiring switching tires and stuff every now and then.
