Our touring hacks. Daughter #1 (21yo) wants to go touring solo in Scotland, her mother insists that she needs some practice accompanied before she's allowed off on her own. So I built the above as cheap as possible to get on the road with her. Aiming to get rolling for a few days in the springtime. Before the midgies!
Hers is based around a 2005 (ish) Kona Smoke mountain bike in a 16" frame. Front wheel is laced around a tasty SON dyno hub which will charge her gadgets. It's not light.
