    It is a 64cm frame. I took off th eorigional selle italia saddle and replaced it with a Brooks B17 Champion honey colour saddle. The origional pedals are also history and I put on some shimano double sided spd's. The other changes to the supplied kit are two chrome water cages and blackburn low rider custom front racks.

    The Panniers and bar bag are all matching Carradice overlanders. Tent is a decathlon Ultra light pro t2. I carry a Blacks xxxl sleeping bag, an Alpkit full length sleep mat and a blacks mat...yes two mats are more comfy! Front panniers contain the Trangia 27 cookset and all cooking gear...the other one is a dedicated washroom including a sports towel etc...it also has plenty of spare room for food bought on route.

    Nice one...you sure make the most of your bike...very good to see.
    the Brooks saddles are perfect for touring and amongst the best available.
    certainly a mile munching machine you have there. xx(

    You could have done about 50 extra miles rather than worrying about when, where to photo your bike

    I do the same thing with weird cycle paths when i'm abroad
