One Sweet Ride
I met Daniel yesterday at American Cyclery. He was kind enough to talk to Juan and I about our travels and then show us his amazing travelling machine. He has a custom Inglis, with a Rohloff rear hub and the SONdelux disc front hub, something I got to see on Errin's Ti Fargo a couple of weeks ago. It makes so much sense to have one of these dyno hubs as you have power and lighting at all times. Daniel uses this rig both for ultralight weekend trips, with the Carousel Designs rear bag or with panniers for fully loaded trips. Both he and Juan absolutely love the Rohloff hubs, something they say is worth the high cost.
Daniel has a really cool blog, pushingthepedals.com where you can read about the bikes he works on and his travels. This year he has a big trip planned for the Himalayas, which I personally can't wait to follow.
