Well I have been looking to update my bike a little, would like a better frame! with 3 x bottle mounts, more room for bigger tyres, a little shorter top tube, etc.
Its looking like i'll have to get one made for me.. But the cost is to High for Me at this Point so i'm working on one of 3 framesets to run with?

  1. Are you doing (the rest) of the tour in 2013??

    1. Well I would like too. But will I have the Money and/or the time off to finish TDA next year.
      I have heard that there may be two Kiwi's riding the full tour, one finishing a missed part of the tour. So it would be nice to be part of Team NZ next year.
      If I do not go with TDA next year i'll be cycle touring some where next year, So this is why i'm looking at a new cycle frame!
      Short I would love to go back and finish TDA, I just have to go with the flow of life........
