    I have the Contrail TT and, so far, it works well. I haven't tested in high winds or in the rain yet, though. It is very large for a 1 person tent and I had no problem inside the tent moving around. There is plenty of room for my pad and bag and to set all my gear next to me inside the tent and still have room. Getting in and out requires just a little maneuvering but, if you move the tent pole a bit to one side, it is really easy (just make sure to move it back after getting in/out). It also packs down reasonably small to fit under my bars. I am debating adding stakes/guy lines to the sides to give it more stability in bad weather, though that would a little weight.

    I don't have any good detail shots of mine, but I can just tell you I used hose clamps and cut up sections of old tubes to keep from scraping up the paint (and helps the clamps "stick" better). Works great! With 1 litre bottles on there, I also had to tie some paracord sections to hold to tops close to the fork or they can bounce out of the cage (I was just using/reusing store bought water bottles as they are cheap and I can refill - an actualy large bike bottle might fit better). Very simple and effective.

    I got a lot of information also from bikepacking.net. This link takes you to a page with details on a bunch of peoples' gear setups, including detailed shots. Extremely helpful!

    This is not mine, but I have had the pleasure of meeting Tom and Sarah. Anyway I thought this might be of interest given that is a good write-up in my view of touring with a Surly Big Dummy.



    The full write-up can be found at Bicyclenomad.com

    My current "off-road" touring setup is a 2008 Giant XTC 2 which until recently was pulling a BoB Ibex trailer. I have now sold the BoB and replaced it with an Extrawheel Voyager. I have yet to use the Voyager in combo with the XTC 2. It is currently being pulled by my Surly Long Haul Trucker on road duties.

    I only called in for lunch. Found it too close to Nannup. I am thinking of doing the Manjimup to Jarrahdale next month as still to complete the newish sections.

    S24O bikepacking yesterday. Only about half my gear turned up on time so I had to ad-hoc my way through the rest of it. Worked pretty well. Didn't need cooking gear because there was this really good cafe about 15 mi from the finish. The tent was nice and is reasonably light, but I'll probably buy a smaller tent for just bikepacking (this is the one that my gf and I use when we go car camping - at 5 lbs it's still reasonably light though).





    Old inner tube ftw :P. The two straps were enough, but the inner tube was my "spare" strap and came in handy more than once with stabilizing the bike while loading it, or holding it against a pole or tree, etc. Even if I get fancy gear, that's probably going to stay as part of my kit.

    FWIW, the frame bag is actually empty; I had some spare tools in there and a camera, but everything I needed for the actual overnight stay was strapped to the handlebars. I also had a backpack that was also mostly empty. I had both in case I felt like the weight distribution wasn't good, so I could move it around if I thought I should.

    I broke out the sewing machine (actually, I stole it from my mom) and sewed up some bags for my bike.

    How does your Mom feel about you stealing her sewing machine to make the bags?

    Borrowed, stolen, what's the difference between family, right?

    She did ask me how many needles I broke in the process.

    I've got to go mow her lawn this week, and I intend to return the sewing machine when I do. I'll show off the results of my work at the same time and see how she feels about it then.

    I have a few tweaks to make and need to do some shakedown rides. Very happy with the work that Scott puts out from the Porcelain Rocket.
