Bike and equipment

The bike is set! I have chosen the swiss bike manufacturer Thömus Bike. The model Long-rider is the perfect bike for my trip! Also, the question of how to pack all the goods (tent, sleeping bag and and and) is almost decided. In the last days, I tested a trailer and it did not convince me enough, which means that I will probably pack all my goods in low rider- / back packs. Ortlieb is one of the leading brands in biking bags and definitly my favorite! The new Garmin GPS is also ordered and will help me to show the way to California! On the multimedia side I go along with Ipod, Lumix cam and EEE notebook.
