That new oppy is seriously cool, i really like the new headtube too, the old hourglass shape didn't do anything for me. I reckon the new one would look even better with the carbon rims you had on the old one.

Those carbon clinchers are dead, they only lasted 5 months.
The frame is great, the BB is ridiculous, def improves the stiffness.
The previous frame was outstanding for long seated climbs, yet to see how the new one goes.

A different style of bike for your scrutiny - my Thorn Nomad with Xtrawheel fully loaded (~65kgs :shock: ) at Kulgera crossing the Ghan railway line.

I wore out the braking surface, and had ongoing rear wheel durability issues.
They didn't suit my style of riding more than the wheels being inferior.

re tires, I just don't like colour, and I'm a Conti man.

I whistled up Kinglake on this bike (unladen) on Sunday, leaving all my companions on their road touring bikes and roadies behind in my dust :twisted:

Have yet to touch the real road bike.

First time poster! Got back into riding a few months ago after a 15 year hiatus and grabbed this shot on the weekend after a ride out to the local dam. Enjoying every minute of it!

You sir need more drink bottles haha. I barely drink water when i'm riding so that lot would last me years haha.

65kg is a fair bit to carry around, thats like having someone on the back of a tandem and the other person not doing any pedalling. Very impressive indeed.

Do you get many flats on your journey?

Water? That's only 3 L in the bottles. On days like this one (39 degrees later) we went through all of that water and twice over !! You would as well. In the red panniers I had two 10L water bags with ~ 12L in them. This was enough for our overnight camping needs.

The total luggage load was a heavy haul. At the maximum load of 65 kgs, for about 7-8 days between resupply and up to 3 days between water points, I could not actually lift my rear wheel off the ground (without doing a serious back injury). 25kgs of all my camping gear, 23L of water = 23 kgs, and then food for up to 8 days = ~15 kgs.
