the fat bike is gone – sold on eBay and as an experiment it has been interesting. I discovered it wasn’t fat biking I liked but rather bikepacking so now with the experiment done it is time to think about the bike I want for bikepacking off-road.
So wish list would be:
29er or 29+ – I don’t need super wide although 29x 2.7 to 3.0 wide would give a similar footprint but quicker rolling. 27.5+ is interesting but not sure if widespread enough just yet.
Dynamo front hub – for electrical generator / phone charging on tour
Rohloff rear – but whether I need to share between the bikes or get a seperate one remains to be seen.
Jones h-bar handlebar …..
Simple really so a cartoon to fill the space
