many thanks to hilleberg, for me the best tent maker. on my first round
the world trip, my hilleberg acto withstand any storm. the only reason
why i wanted a new one now is, i would like to have a free standing
tent. many thanks to hilleberg for providing me with the ultimates
of course, during the second round the world trip it proved again the high quality
of the hilleberg tent.
thanks a lot to magura. for such an adventure there are no better
brakes than the magura hs33. forget all concerns concerning hydraulic,
neither heat nor coldness or extreme altitude has an impact on the
also the brake pads last almost forever, which is very positive when
you are cycling in areas without (good) bicycle shops. for my second
round the world trip i got the “menja” front
suspension as well. thank you very much, i will write about my
|many thanks to reise
know-how for the maps of:
- central asia
- china eastern
- western china
- canada west
i will report from all these areas and even more.
I learnt my lesson! I did the big mistake not to take all maps with me. Only the kausasus map, the others I wanted to be sent on the road. Unfortunately it is almost not possible to get reliable postal addresses east of turkey. Especially I missed a lot the chinese maps. just before I entered the country i lost my GPS and in china you can not get usable maps.
sorry reise-know-how that I couldn't offer further feedbacks. .
|after the gears has lasted
perfectly more than 80 000 km, i don’t want to be without it
anymore. rohloff has revised the gears completely and sponsored all
other parts for my new bicycle. many thanks, i'm looking forward to the
next 80 000 km.
-- meanwhile i have more than 140 000 km on the hub.
|starting a bike trip early
february? in the snow? i was often considered a little bit crazy. why ?
- i got the schwalbe marathon winter with spikes! you can also use it
without ice and snow driving, then with noise. more experiences with
these new tires you can read later on my blog.
I was especially lucky because I had the lusury that schwalbe sent me new tyres whereever I have been on the globe, by DHL express. within 5 days I had a new set of tyres. Actually I didn't need this service very often. the schwalbe mondial tyres are lasting forever, up to 14000km . Thanks a lot.
|after the first velotraum
had nearly 100 000km I decided to get a new one, almost the same setup,
because I was very happy with the old one. Also the second round the
world trip with the second velotraum was a big pleasur. in the meantime
it got completely maintained in Weil der stadt. It's always a pleasure
to be there. Thanks a lot to stefan and markus.
