Looks absolutely wonderful, Julien -- top marks!

Please, can you favor us with some photos showing the bottle mount behind the seat tube? I'm sure interested in your mount.

Thanks for the updates; your Camel is the very picture of Adventure!

All the best,

Dan.

Great looking bike! Congratulations on all your work.

I really like that frame bag behind the seat tube. I seem to remember that you had it made especially for you.

When I look at where your Edelux headlight is mounted, it seems that you might get water spray from the front of the mudguard going onto the back of the light. I hope that the light is mounted sufficiently to the side so that does not happen.

Yes it's called "custom bag"

First you need to make a pattern

Hi Dan ,

As you can see it is a simple assembly, with aluminium of 3mm thick




It is enough rigid to support 0.5 liter of fuel or water ..

About the "Surly 8 Pack" rack, i'm satisfied of his manufacture.

Around 650 gr of steel, it can carry almost 14 kg. All fastening system is stainless steel !

It seems "fat" and strong ! (the same width than the Thorn front rack) so they are meant to be together   :)

It is sold only for the Surly fork, but i adapted for our Nomad fork without difficulty.. and it fit perfectly !







yeah looks great Julio, that surly rack complements the thorn carrier. is the steering twitchy fully loaded up at the front?
i see surly also have a 24 pack rack!
