What is the best bikepacking configuration to explore Laos?
After spending 5 days on the entire race course and many more days cycling in Laos, Axel shares some key advice to know to get prepared for the event.
The recon was done with the following bike configuration:
– Bicycle type: OPEN UP gravel bike
– Tire type and size: Schwalbe G-ONE Bite 40mm
– Gear ratio: 50/34 in the front – 11/34 in the back (a single-speed would be more comfortable with ideally a 0,75 gear ratio)
