That's the one, the X-RD3.What is the gearing? I thought it was the usual Sturmey Archer wide 3 (75%/100%/133%) but I could be wrong (edit: and of course it depends on the base used). I've toured on my 3 but nowhere steep and carrying less (not camping). I had to push up a 17% but mainly because I couldn't restart after pulling into a passing place.
Yep, replacing saddle and pedals was a priority for me too.I enjoyed reading this. I haven't done anything like this with mine but of course as soon as I rode it for the first time it occurred to me I could get some camping gear on it pretty easily. So far I've not ridden it beyond about 12 miles in one go, I need to replace the saddle and pedals to make longer distances viable.
Definitely need something to keep stuff in the front carrier of an Elephant Bike- I've lost items of shopping going over speedbumps. I've got a couple of wide luggage straps which I use, works if the load is in bags but a net would be better.
Thanks.Really enjoyed that. Great write up.
I found a pee bottle makes cold (or wet) weather camping much easier. Mine's a repurposed juice bottle. No need to leave the tent.
