BIKE SET-UP

In order to have a bike that perfectly fits my specific needs, desires and price expectations, I have configured a completely individual bike with the great help of the experts of the Radspannerei – a bike shop in Berlin, Kreuzberg, wich is specialized in steel frames.

MY TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT

Im very interested in film and photography. Unfortunately, you are taking a major risk, if you are taking highly expensive technical equipment on your trip.  In addition, I had to focus on thing I really need and a really good tripod or a bigger camera is definitely not necessary for „survival“. Nevertheless, we have decided to document our trip as beautifully as possible…

iPhone 7 128gb black

Action Camera

GoPro Hero 4 silver

Laptop

MacBook air 13″

Drone

DJI Mavic Air

Power Bank

MY CYCLING CLOTHING

By choosing my cycling cloth, I mainly focused on Vaude, because of their convincing price performance ratio. another really really convincing argument to choose Vaude is the environmentally friendly production of the materials.

Main Jacket

Bike Shoes

Rain Jacket

Vaude Men´s Sky Fly II

Bike Shorts

CAMPING

We will experience temperature differences of about 50 degrees Celsius during our journey. This makes the choice of camping gear quite  complicated. After all, it is a compromise between the lowest possible pack size and weight and retaining robustness and comfort.

After all, this equipment will be my home for the next 10 months.
