Added front panniers for the second trip. Just wanted a little more room to pack things in.

2 sets of Ortliebs! There's extravagant :D

I like to be prepared, even if I am slow. I even used front and rear panniers in the Alps this year.

BTW, nice setup with that Singular... what's the dynamo on it?

It's the SON 28 Klassik (i.e from before the current version). Front light is an Edelux, rear is a Seculite, with an additional bracket for a Smart on the bagman support, via a J82S.
Front rack is a Berthoud, rear is a Bagman Exp, which I'm thinking of changing to the new Bagman 2 because of the bounce I get with a full Longflap over rough tracks. This has put a dent in the Brethoud 50mm rear mudguard.

BTW, "2 sets of Ortliebs" referred to the fact that there was a different set of 4 on each of the 2 photos

"2 sets"...

actually, in the second photo, the front panniers are the same as in the first, it's just hard to tell.

the white-line panniers are classics, and the black ones are plus panniers, about 200g lighter. I now also have the plus front panniers.I bought the plusses to save weight.

but, talk about extravagant, your Berthoud rack and mudguards cost a fortune!!

I also have a Carradice Bagman, and yeah, you can't have a lot of weight on it, I'd say max 8kg before the weight starts bouncing around. I've never had that much weight on it except for the 1km from the shop to home.

The mudguards are only about £10 more than standard SKS (£40), but the Berthoud is expensive (€115). Unfortunately all the cheaper racks of a similar style attach to cantilever bosses, and I didn't have any. Sprockets UK import the Nitto M18 now (a mere £85), but at the time it was go to Japan for it, or there was a very similar rack from Rivendell in the US.
