What's new:

1) A ride across the roof of the world - the Himalaya cycle ride 2010

2) Equipment list for cycle touring: Bike and parts (updated)

The action packed ride through the Himalaya mountain range was documented with photos and a HD sports video camera .

Felix tested the new 'Pinion' gearbox. See report and video in the German magazine "Spiegel": http://www.spiegel.de/spiegel/0,1518,714838,00.html

Right: Prototype gearbox with 18 gears, going through snow at 5300 m.a.s.l.
It was amazing to see how the 'Pinion' gearbox handled the rough roads. I was cycling with the 14 gear Rohloff speedhub while Felix was cycling with the Pinion 
gearbox.
The switching and feel of changing gears was quite amazing and compares well with the Rohloff.(http://www.pinion.eu/de/).
I personally will stick to the Rohloff 14 gear Speedhub on any long distance tours.

Felix was pointing to the range that we were going to cross the following days on the Manali - Leh highway with numerous passes up to 5330 m in height.

Below: The warm and friendly smiles of Ladakhi children, in the northern remote area of Kashmir (India) makes a cyclist feel very welcome.
