Kit list

Several people via email, Twitter and Facebook have asked about the bikes and items that we took along on our Lejog. For security of our steeds we never said during the trip just incase we were tracked down as their value added up to many thousands of ££.

For those who asked here is all the detail......

Bikes from Colnago, Cube, Felt, Giant, Look, Specialized & 2 Trek's. Plus a spare from Giant.
Groupsets all came from Shimano or SRAM.
Wheels from Bontrager, DT Swiss, Mavic, Fulcrum & Paul Hewitt.
Tyres mainly Continental GP4000 or Gatorskins.

We all carried our own spares to fix roadside repairs - punctures, broken chain etc
The two support vehicles carried equipment such as track pumps, spare cables, wheels, cleaning kit and a workstand.

If anyone out there is planning the same ride and is wondering which spares to take along the following happened to some of our bikes - broken rear hanger, broken spokes and the usual punctures (although we didn't have that many of them)

A little sign we spotted one night after bike cleaning!
