2000+ miles and all’s well

Posted on Updated on

My Travers Angus has now topped 2000 miles since I picked it up of Michael Travers early this summer.


The only changes I’ve made since new have been to replace the prototype belt drive (after the mud proof belt snapped in it’s first bit of gloopy mud, forcing me to walk the 7 miles back to my car) with a normal chain drive. I have changed the Charge Spoon saddle for a Brooks C17 which fitted my bum better and I’ve fitted Maxxis Chronicles for the winter gloop, but the Knards will go back on for longer drier weather rides and when the summer arrives.


Although I’ve tightened up the eccentric bottom bracket a small bit a couple of times as the chain has stretched.


Now with added Travers bottles


It’s been used on long rides, bike packing trips, short rides, trail centres and there is nothing I would change about it.

    Great bike, have exactly the same. I got the framebag from relevate, size small, but found out it did’nt fit nicely. Which framebag do use here? Alpkit? Custom made, or standard size? Your frame is also medium?
    Thx for the info

      It is a custom Alpkit frame bag, it works really well when I need to carry more that normal.
      I mainly use the thinner frame bags that sit above the bottles in bottle cages now a days
