Staying in motels or caravan parks and buying meals?

My type of touring. Bugger struggling into head winds laden down like a donkey out of The Treasure of The Sierra Madre.

Holds the break on, stops the bike rolling forward when leaning up against something. use a section of an old inner tube ( mtb, road tube wont stretch) .

As above, stops the bike rolling when it's on the stand.

+1000. One of the absolute all time best tips anyone will ever get.

GraemeL, just curious, what is the thing you have attached to the top of the right seat stay?

I also do the brake trick, tip I picked up here, (with a bit of velcro) helps a heap when back pedalling to clean the chain. Although I wasn't sure if there was any negative aspects to keeping the lever applied all the time.

That looks like one of many different types of GoPro Hero HD camera mounts :)

How do you get Flickr links to show up as images ? ?? :evil:

Old: 2010 Oppy A4 selling for $600 - hopefully. A really nice bike. Done about 5600 km on it in a year.

Image

New: 2011 Berserker Green CAAD10 - 7.1 kg at present.

Changed the wheels - from Askiums to Pro Lite Breccianos Thanks - Jacks1071 on these forums

Changed Handlebar tape to Deda Green - but now changing to Fizik Green - don't like the clash...
Put in lightweight skewers
Changed Cannondale seatpost to Thompson Ultimate ...
Changed Cannondale handlebars to Deda Newton 42cm
Changing saddle to Fizik Antares
Might put Supersonic tubes in...

So be about 6.9 kg all up...
