current touring setup

This is my current touring setup… minus the touring bags of course.
I just geared it down to 39t upfront with the 11×36 in the rear. Yes, it’s a mountain cogset. Geared beautifully in the hills of SW Ohio. Most of the time I have a 46t up front but I think I’m going to leave the 39 for the winter. Putting a set of ice tires on my other wheelset.
I just updated my rear and front racks since my Ohio trip. The rear is a Civia Hyland rack, the front is an Axiom Low rider rack which has been creatively mounted. I’ve had many problems with the Axiom design at first but I’m now finally pleased with it’s placement and durability due my creative mounting modifications.

Note: I’ve added tons of notes on the photo if you roll over it with your cursor. At some point I’m planning on reviewing almost every touring item i’ve used this year on my blog.
