Waterproof bag bike 65L

Seeking new bags, I found what I was looking for at WEST BIKING.

Here is the contractual picture

The side bag is 30 cm high x 30 cm wide x 15 cm deep and weighs 620 grams.

The upper bag is 43 cm high x 30 cm wide x 15 cm deep and weighs 580 grams.

The positioning of the saddlebags is very simple, there are two metal hooks at the back at the top of the bag and an adjustable strap system at the bottom.

The attachment to the luggage rack is therefore very simple.

The top bag can be transformed into a backpack.

The set is connected by a zipper system.

I loaded this 1st side bag with 12 days of meal which corresponds to a weight of 7.5 kg.

The meals are composed of chocolate cereal bars, dehydrated fruits, meals with starchy foods, fruit pasta, all "homemade".

The 2nd side bag contains the small equipment and the rest of the meals for a weight of 8.2 kg.

The bag has reinforced seams wide enough. The canvas is thick and waterproof.

I will give you my last impressions at the end of the challenge.

The design is nice, the water tank and the cup are with a relief surface very pleasant.

Unscrew the water tank, from which the dosing spoon will be removed.

Fill the dosing spoon with the desired amount of coffee powder.

Dsc02136  

 

It is necessary to position the filter on the dosing spoon (I cup my coffee with the back of the spoon).

Dsc02137  Dsc02138  Dsc02139  

Then place the filter on the base.

Dsc02134  Dsc02141

Then screw the base onto the water tank.

Dsc02147 Dsc02149 Dsc02150

Hold the machine with the pourer down over the cup and start pumping.

Dsc02151

 

After about 6 pumping, the filter fills with water. Continuing to pump, we finally extract the coffee and we can enjoy his espresso.

Dsc02152  Dsc02154 

 

Clean everything, be careful the dishwasher is forbidden.

Treat yourself and come see me again at the end of the challenge, I will tell you about this new experience in bivouac.

Always in the worry of being visible, I found a powerful bike lamp that is easy to position.

I made this acquisition on the site of Ali Express.

Recharging the lamp is not done via a standard mini USB port.

The orange cover at the back allows good insulation of the port against the weather.

Mini bike foot pump with manometer

Hello all.

The previous challenges, I carried my good old bicycle foot pump with manometer, convenient, but a bit bulky. While ferreting on Ali Express, I came across a mini bike foot pump with manometer. This is the West Biking brand.

Dsc02183

It weighs 335 g

It measures folded: 17.5 cm high, on a base of 12 cm long and 10 cm wide.

 

Once unfolded it measures: 24.5 cm high, on a base of 25 cm long and always 10 cm wide.

Dsc02192

 

The folding foot is metal and serves to maintain the extension of the inflator in the down position when folded.

Dsc02191  Dsc02190

 

It is equipped with a manometer allowing measurements in Bar (10) or in PSI (160).

Dsc02184

The main inflation tip is conventional. It is a double nozzle, the lower one is for Presta valves and the upper one for Schrader valves.

Dsc02187  Valves3

It also has three additional tips for inflating balloons and others.

Dsc02185  Dsc02188

The grip very simple. The inflation tip is locked by the pivot system via the small gray handle. Nothing's easier.

Dsc02210  Dsc02211

My front wheels are equipped with Schrader valves, top end. I inflate to 4 Bar.

Dsc02212  Dsc02213

Dsc02214  Dsc02215  Dsc02217

 

For the rear wheel, I'm in a Presta valve. I will use the bottom end. I inflate to 4.5 Bar.

Dsc02218  Dsc02221

Dsc02222

I find it easy to use, compact which will facilitate its transport. But as in my other articles, I will give you my final impressions on my return.
