Bike & Gear

Everybody wants to know what I am riding and how much gear I’ll be taking… so here it is, my bike and gear run down!

The Bike

I am going to be riding a Custom Curve GXR Titanium Frame. This bike is the bike to take when you don’t know what to expect and I have no doubts it will get me around the world!

A huge thanks has to be said to the Bio-Mechanics Cycle and Repairs bike store in Adelaide for this bike (https://bmcr.com.au). The effort and thought put into it by Pete and the BMCR Crew is unbelievable and every single component has been chosen for a reason, because of those guys I have the bike to tackle the world!
