In two weeks time Ill be cycling down to Norfolk with @wildnorthlands and anyone else who tags along. Today I've been converting the dayride / audax bike into a light tourer.
Here's the before shot...
Ive swapped the back wheel for one with a lot more spokes, and a 28C tyre, fitted the Carradice Long Flap bag and bag carrier. Ive swapped the carbon fibre seat post for an alloy one to support the bag and fitted A Maxx Joystick front light and some Ayeup lights with 6 hours burn time . I swapped the bar bag for the bigger one from my touring bike but decided that was over the top so Ive stuck with the small Ortlieb. Just got to swap the pedals over at some point so that I can use shoes that I can walk (to the pub) in. Finally i put the race blade guards back on What have I missed out then?
