Nancy I have both been riding Surly Trolls, hardy little bikes I’d have no hesitation in recommending for unbeaten path travel.
I’m planning a rundown on kit and setup at some point. In the meantime, California has provided some colourful backdrops to show off our faithful steeds.
Surly Troll – versatile steel frames ideal for unbeaten path travel
Porcelain Rocket – finely crafted, made-to-measure framebags for all your bikepacking needs
Tout Terrain Mule – high end, suspended trailer with a nifty built in kickstand
Rohloff Speedhub– luxury uber hub for big mile riding
