But also the bottles by Keego (titanium on the inside but squeezable) are great as are the other bags by Apidura, especially the food pouches are importand for me, as they are are always filled with sweet and salty snacks ;-)

Key items of kit: Due to the relatively small frame, I will opt to use a full-frame Apidura bag.

Those bags will be complemented by an Apidura top-tube bag for quickly accessible stuff and a food pouch which allows me to carry a third water bottle. In the darkness I'll be guided by a Supernova Airstream 2 Upside-Down.

The 8bar 27.5 wheels have passed the winter endurance test and the 50mm Schwalbe tyres will help provide comfort, softness and grip on gravel areas. The waterproof 8bar bags fit perfectly inside my small frame will keep all my stuff dry. Water and a couple of snacks I plan to carry in a small rucksack. Overall, this bike is my little pride, joy and just an extension of my body. My friend and comrade in all my past and future adventures!

Age: 45

Cap number: 19

Location: Ingolstadt, Germany

This bike is a "double mullet": mullet because of the different sizes of the wheels (front 29", back 650b) and mullet because of the mix of drivetrain components road/MTB. Drivetrain 1x12 by SRAM (Force / X0). Front wheel with SON dynamo hub laced on a light DUKE rim. René Herse tires with tubes. Good old Shimano XTR pedals. Lights (front and rear) by Busch&Muller. Helmet light by K-Lamp. Brooks C15 carved saddle. Tailfin Aeropack and cargo cage system. Miss Grape frame bags and pouch.

Key items of kit: I really enjoy the double mullet system. Quick accelerations, great agility and good uphill ability. I also love that saddle! Despite being a big fan of tubeless tires, I prefer the simplicity of tubes when it comes to a bike packing event like this one!
