    This is exactly the feedback I need, real world scenario's! thx!

    Thanks for the offer but forgot to state it’s an older rim brake frame couldn’t stand the uselessness of a disc hub. :(

    Budgeting has come to mind, but the frame needs a respray, possibly an other fork and when I’m at it, a custom stem and racks.

    If I decide to go the Ryde/Rigida route, I might aswell go for the fancy CSS stuff. Although I do want to keep the bike as light as possible while still being able to load it up.

    Looking to build some new wheels for light-ish touring but cannot seem to find any maximum weight limits for the Kinlin range. Maximum load while be about 130kg (75kg rider + 10kg bike + 20kg luggage + 20% contingency)

    I would like a dynamo front hub, probably SP PV-8 and a Deore rear hub (or anything bombproof I find second hand).

    Thinking 32 spokes front and rear, but undecided on the XR22/26/31 rims.

    I already have a set of XR31 wheels, but do not really need anything that high on the tourer bike. Unless I can find some valid points for getting the 31s over the 22/26.

    Don't really care about the ceramic bearings, but the c-bear bb in my Supersix has been silently spinning smooth af.

    It’s actually the route to and from that are really nice. :)
    Weather over here has been exceptional last couple days, it deed go below zero last light which fucked our magnolia.

    Went to the Muur (and the Bosberg and then back to Ghent) yesterday on a 110k trip and really happy about the Supersix.

    White bikes are shit to keep clean so it seems...

    Something like that yeah. But due to the placement of the mounting point of the Supernova lights being more in the middle of the frame, I was thinking about a C-shape that would go around the light.

    Once I have something usable I'll post it in the thread.

    Yeah, a mate is selling a complete etap upgrade set due to axs upgrade.

    I like the idea of etap on a travel bike, seems the best logical application. But as I would need a frame made specifically for this , i was thinking if disc could be a valid option over direct mount.

    Thinking of getting a S&S coupler "travel bike" built with old etap, but am thinking discs would also make sense.

    What are my options for mechanical calipers other than TRP Spyre SLC's that are also light-ish? Do I need to look at hybrid juin tech solutions?

    As said above, you can, but the beam pattern will be upside down.

    I recently acquired an Airstream 2 and will be 3D printing a mount (once I get back to work) that will be able to attach to the bottom of the light and has a gopro interface on top. Shoot me a dm if you want to test one, would be nice if the mount were universal for most Supernova lights.
