You may recall from my last post that the front Reelight on the Amreicano was getting in the way of installing the front carrier. Well, after pondering about it last night, I finally decided to remove both the front and rear Reelights from my Americano and install the Front Carrier.
I will be installing the Reelights on the Cannondale T-800. The front carrier is also made by Tubus and it is a lowrider, Tara.
This installation took me about 30 minutes. I had to retrace my steps based on my memory of how I had installed it on the Cannondale T-800.
Here is GCMA (Green Co-Motion Americano) unloaded!
Here is GCMA (Green Co-Motion Americano) partially loaded! Once I add my front panniers, it will be a wrap!!
The bags on the GCMA are:
Arkel. I especially love Arkel because they are excellent bags and they are made in Canada, where I believe workers are paid a decent wage. It is NOT a sweatshop product!! Plus, I went to school in Canada.
I use The Bug and the Utility Basket when I am riding around town. For my future self-supported touring, I have the G-54 and I plan to buy a pair of GT-18 or GT-18BP for the front.
Well, this wraps up 50% of my recent project list. I still have to fix the scratches on the bike.
