We would like to say a big thank you to the good people at Carradice and Brooks for sponsoring us with panniers and saddles respectively. And a special thanks to Kat at Recycled Cyclist in Ashville, North Carolina for keeping Rose looking cool where lesser dressed folk would succumb to lycra domination.
It is still a work in progress but here is the kit list , I have linked the products to the sellers we got them from.
You will see that the name John is mentioned quite a lot, this is because almost all the kit we have bought second hand was sold to us by someone called John. Strange but true.
The dotted underlined ones are linked to their source pages, these will open in another window.
