Bikepacking the Camino Portugal – Prolouge

287

After reading so many articles, having friends always dashing off on overnight backpacking adventures, I thought it was about time I got in on the action. Now I’m sure most sensible people would have their first bikepacking experience with their mates, on some local turf, within easy escape if something goes pear shaped. Yeah I didn’t do that…..

Ti Tuesday – Jones

I can’t believe I haven’t featured a Jones yet! There are a few people around this area that are lucky enough to have one. Characterised by their love / hate looks and truss rigid fork they certainly are striking. Jimbo

Ti Tuesday – Kinesis Tripster ATR

OK, so I admitted I have a titanium fetish, I reckon it’s time to show you one of mine at last! So here’s probably the most used of them, the Kinesis Tripster ATR. I rarely ride on the road anymore and if I want to cover some extra miles then this is the tool for the job, I can combine some country lanes with pretty much anything I would normally ride on my MTB.

I’ve added a few extras to the original spec, it has the Exposure Revo dynamo hub and light fitted, so I can commute on it and I never have to think about charging my lights. Stan’s Grail rims, so I can run it tubeless and greatly reduce the amount of punctures I get with the overzealous descending it encourages. Just to finish it off is a Tubus Airy Ti rack, which carries a set of Ortleib rolltop paniers.

Video – Cinelli off The Grid


I’m not sure what I think about this video, it’s certainly worth a watch. It’s not the adventure or the going where no one should that I’m not sure about, that bit is really interesting, it’s the other stuff, have a watch and see what I mean.
