One of the most contentious and highly subjective subjects commonly found on bicycling blogs are gear reviews. They are often nothing more than personal preferences based upon unique experiences using individual products. Well dear reader, I will offer you nothing more than my highly opinionated reports based upon my very limited and unprofessional experience with just the stuff I have.

Bicycle Touring Gear

As with everything in the world..."shit is subjective". All I can do is show you what I've got and why I use it. The rest is up to you and your personal preferences. Go ahead and Google "bike touring gear" and fall into the black hole... however; the shear amount of buffoonery is mind-boggling.

Here's the basic list:
  • bike
  • tent
  • sleeping bag
  • stove
  • food
  • water
  • clothes

Want more? Just add whatever else you want. If you're looking for more expert advice, then check out this website: "Tom's Bike Trip". He's been there and done it... and there ain't no reason I (or anyone else for that matter) should bother any further.

Meanwhile I'll try to get some photos of my personal gear as I go through a Spring cleanup and inventory. How's that sound?

- cheers, cm
