Pilot Vamos pinion 2018 - 2021

In 2018 we embark on our adventure on two bikes of Pilot Cycles titanium bikes, a top company from Nuenen on the outskirts of Eindhoven, the Netherlands. We chose the model PILOT VAMOS Pinion. PILOT bikes are made of the most indestructible and beautiful material: titanium. The VAMOS is made for long distances, great adventures, diverse conditions, to discover the most remote areas. And, not unimportantly, maintenance is limited to the absolute minimum. On the bike is:

  • Pinion P1.18 gearbox and Gates carbon belt
  • Supernova lightning and dynamo hub
  • Sella Italia Epoca saddle
  • Schwalbe Marathon Mondial 50mm tires
  • Blackburn Design panniers, frame bags, handle bar bag, and cargo cages
  • Patagonia Black Hole bags 30L
  • Revelate Design feed bags
  • Ortlieb handlebar bag Ultimate Six Pro
  • Quad Lock mounting system for iPhoneSE
  • Busch&Muller E-Werk
  • Garmin 810 Edge
  • SPOT Gen3

Trek & Merida MTB winter 2022

Without the camping gear we could pack light and took out MTB's on the trip to the Canary Islands. We liked the setup. The MTB however were a little worn-out. It would cost al lot to get the MTB's strong enough for the European Divide, the route we wanted to try on our next trip.

To go more often offroad we got ourselves brand new bicycles ans cycled a tiny part of the European Divide and a route based on the the Transandalus in Southern Spain.
