My bikes are mine, not for public display. There is a section in Togoparts for people to post photos of their bike to show off to the world, go there to ogle.

There is this thing call privacy which is so lacking in people today, they publish their life in facebook and blogs without knowing the serious implications that cannot be erased.  Sheer foolishness !

yea, you just verbalised what i had in a thought bubble over the top of my head 're:who cares what bicycle he rides', but i do sense that just because people post in showrooms doesn't mean they are showing off. its interesting to see how others pick/setup their bikes, and see which parts work/gel looks great in any given combination

Hey Guys,

thanks for the interest generated. I do realise 1000km in 10 days is a damn siong trip (on knobbies). We are still in the process of setting up the bike. I'm riding a bizango or anthem x if i can get a full sus pannier rack. Panniers are using Ortliebs; just 2 rear panniers as we intend to do hotels / guest house / resort / shelters rather than really rough it out, we do have a tent. 

UNICEF is UN - Children fund
UNIFEM is UN - Womens fund

We will create a blog and add in more infor as we move up and whenever there is a chance to upload photos (of the scenery and ppl we meet).

One this is for sure, IF we hit the thai border, we will definitely pose a "been here, done that" photo.

pls consider changing your tire up to the Schwalbe Marathon supreme, in 1.6  ' if u are going primarily on tarmac... that is if u want a less 'siong' trip. either that or Panaracer t-serv messengers

Thanks Fudge. Will consider that... progress right now, I've just added a pannier. It is not so easy installing a pannier to a disk bike. The selection of panniers is important. It is necessary to bring to a expert installer to reduce pain and time.
