    Here is my pedalpowered baby, a Merida TFS 300D


    Since that Picture I have replaced the tyres with Specialized Ground Control 2.3 in the front and Fast Trak control 2.0 on the back. They have made such a difference to my ride, improved ride quality and grip.

    All depends on the race... when you have clip in pedals you need to use your weight, balance and learn how to clip out quickly. Long flat races with non technical hills, half tar and dirt.. clip in pedals are a big advantage.

    tecnical races use flats.. everyone says that you become a better rider using flats but I don't agree with that entirely. You tend to jump off as soon as things get rough but clip pedals use your weight balance to stay on and ride.

    I use both

    learn to 🐰 hop using flats wheels as you will probably crash using clips.

    enjoy riding... a good feeling drug that bites hard..

    In my case I found the stand either bumps against the frame or ground, so I didn't fit it again. (Had one on my 26".) I sometimes carry a 'stand alone' stand along when transporting bike to a venue.

    Affects aerodynamics and adds unnecessary weight... It's just not practical for the semi/professional. You do find stands however on bikes designed for the casual rider.

    So many questions.
    Where did you get that saddle bag?
    Are you taking a backpack as well or are you saving your back?
    How is that handlebar bag affixed?

    I'm working on a Bikepacking project with a few mates for next year, and realized that we know sweet blue nothing about the packing part.

    Edit: love the saddle

    Edit: love the saddle
    Saddle bag got made by a mate who periodically does a batch of them. Can also get them here https://www.tomtop.com/p-y4739.html or http://www.cycletouring.co.za/

    I do also take a backpack as this particular tour was in the middle of winter and more kit was needed.

    Handlebar bag is attached with velcro straps.

    Enjoy - it's a great way to relax.

    Edit - the saddle is worth gold to me
