First post here! Figured it was time to show off my budget touring rig.

Picked this ol' girl up used last week and am setting out on a little 600km tour starting tomorrow, through the mountains of BC including the Duffy Lake Road. If you're looking for details and specs on the bike, I'l tell you up front, you won't be impressed. This is a budget build for my wee bit of freedom before the next school semester starts.

19?? Raleigh Serengeti: 4130 Chromoly frame made in Canada (woo!)
Biopace (yeah baby) 48/38/28 crankset mated to a 12-32 7spd cassette
Continental City Ride 26x1.75" tires
Replaced the cantilevers with basic Tektro V-brakes
Picked up the front rack and the full set of Norco panniers from around the right era for $20
Cobbled together a second bottle cage mount with zip ties and hockey tape
It has wheels.
Also has a seat.

All told I reckon I'm in it for under $300. The tent's packed. I've got a stove, food, and fuel. Time to get sweaty!
