My summer’s start.
Pictured: day 1.
48cm steel frame Satellite Sport (CL for $500 w/ large Ortlieb waterproof pannier, fenders, rear rack)
700c wheels with 25mm Gatorskin Continentals (thanks big brother!)
Axiom lowrider front rack
Convertible hip pack/bar bag (Next Adventure, Portland for $10)
2 medium Novara panniers (CL- 3 for $50 but only needed 2)
I LOVE my setup. Smooth ride that lets me rocket down hills and stay grounded to power back up them.
..now if only it was a motorcycle
