The Expedition Bikes

Both bikes were assembled for a previous cycling trip across Tibet. The basic configuration of the bikes was not changed for the Mountain & Bike expedition except for a few small details. For example we exchanged the back wheel rims (never again with Mavic!) and we mounted the offroad tires Schwalbe 'Smart Sam'. In addition, a climbing sling was mounted at frame below the seat to allow for efficient pushing and pulling of the bike in muddy terrain. This certainly turned out to be a very useful addition!
