Abu, your photos are good but they are a bit big. Any chance of scaling them down by, say, 50%? They take a while to scroll through, especially on a tablet or phone?

No, No, it isn't bandwidth, which would be slow loading times. Many of your photos, mostly the portrait ones, are simply way too big to fit on the screen of my large monitor, let alone my tablet or phone, which rather spoils the viewing experience, that is all. If you chose a smaller size to upload to your photo server it wouldn't be a problem and would make for a pleasanter viewing experience, that's all.

It wasn't my intention to upset you, so apologies if I did, just trying to be helpful.

Sweet setup Abu. How much weight are you carrying in each of those bags? If it isn't too personal, what are you carry in each bag? Also, what is the rear hub? Internal/derailleur combo?

The Topeak seatpost/saddle bag has a limit of 5kg while the Tern Luggage Trus in the front has a limit of 7kg. Factor in the weight and weight capacity of the Tern Kanga rack, i can carry 6.5kg in the front. So limit-wise, 5kg rear, 6.5kg front.

Now, i am not carrying nearly as much as that. On the pics I was carrying about 2.5kg per bag. The bags were filled with dirty laundry for testing purposes only. I am actually contemplating ditching/leaving behind the seatpost/saddle bag. I'll be adding a triangle bag containing tubes, tools & first aid stuff, and mounting a bottle cage on each side of the head-tube. Money, credit card, battery power bank, mirrorless camera (Canon M3) and passport will go in a hip-belt bag or shorts pockets on my person.

The rear hub is a SRAM DualDrive II mated to a 11-36T cogset via a Shimano Zee RD. 19 gear-inches on the low end, 113 gear-inches on the top end.

Have a safe trip! Do you have an itinerary for this?
I am trying to post sample itineraries on my travel website. You can also create a website with the hPage website builder, by the way.
