Branch Winora Dakar with many alterations
Fork has been broken at the beginning of the journey and had been replaced by an improvised 28'' fork (actually 26'') in Chile
Brakes: Hydraulic Magura HS33. I had a repair kit with me that was never used
Generator: Hub dynamo from Shimano. Not used so often but worked well.
Carrier: Tubus Cargo. Unbelievable robust but LanChile managed it to get it a little bit damaged.
Lowrider: Cordo from Holland.
Bottle Carriers: Minoura from Japan. Very expensive but vital in deserts because it is possible to carry large quantities of water with it. Unfortunately they are of aluminium and can't be repaired.
Gear: SRAM 3.0 Unbelievable robust. The only part at my bicycle that I still use after 5 years!
Lights: Front Retro Halogen Plus, back Toplight diode with battery.
Tyres: Schwalbe Cross. Really good and unbreakable on bad roads but not so good for sand (too (too narrow)
Lock: Abus Manhattan. May have helped - I don't know...
