Personal setups » Gordo’s “Changes”


Over the last few years I have been experimenting with a set-up. The order below shows the 4versions that I have used most. The multiday trip on the Yeti with the rack by far was the heaviest load. I am working on a set-up that will get the load more on the bike and less on me, as shown in the last photo.


2008 AZT PHX to Tucson


Arizona Trail 2007 Flagstaff to Phoenix

2005 AZT Oracle to Freeman Rd.

I think I found the right set up with this.

Generally, I think you need less stuff, and a much smaller sleeping kit.

yeah, I agree. look at the new set-up. It seems pretty solid.

I remember from your other post that you had made your own frame bag. If you made that new seat bag in your setup, I’d say your sewing skills are really coming along, since it looks to be a step up in difficulty. Overall, quite the evolution in gear and style.

yes, we made the seat bag as well.

How is the stuff on the handlebar held together & strapped to the bar? It must be sturdier than it looks.
