XXL Cage: Ventura alloy tall cage
The ventura alloy XL bottle cage, another recommendation by Matt & Jasi from PedalPromise. This holder supports PET bottles with up to 1500ml content and fixes the bottles with a strap against wobbling.
Front light: Son Edelux II
A strong LED dynamo front light by manufacturer SON with up to 80 Lux so as a wide beam. There is a connection for the rear light, three different modes (on / of / automatic via sensor) and parking light.
Racks: Tubus Tara & Logo
Another classic! Tubus racks are known as one of the most robust / durable racks on the market. I use a “Tubus Logo” as a rear rack and a “Tubus Tara” as a Lowrider.
In comparison to the similar “Tubus Cargo” rear rack, the panniers are hanging lower on the Logo, which gives you a lower center of gravity.
Tires: Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tour
The most used tires in the bicycle touring world. Schwalbe produces the most durable tires and most effective puncture protection belt available for bicycle tires. I have chosen the Marathon Plus Tour 26″x1.75″ tires cause of the deeper profile.
Rims: Ryde Andra 30
Ryde / Rigida is known for their sturdy and well made rims. I use Ryde Andra rims, which are built for heavy loads. The Andra 30 rim has a double wall shape, is almost indestructible and has a load capacity up to 180kg per rim.
USB Charger: Cycle2Charge V2
Cycle2Charge is a small USB-charger which replaces the stem cap of the Ahead headset and is wired to my SON28 front hub dynamo. With this little device you can charge a phone or any other usb device, respectively a pass-through battery pack while cycling. Works absolutely great!
Handlebar: BBB Multibar
I mainly chose a Multibar (aka. Trekkingbar / Butterflybar) cause of the different grip positions. I appreciate to have a second lateral hand position as I’m used to ride drop bars from my road bike. Moreover the upper part of the multibar offers me enough space to attach electronic devices for my bicycle cockpit.
