My previous off-road bike

Giant Sedona, used by police in some cities, very light. A friend liked it so much I gave it to him for a wedding present. It looks rough but I did all the tricks to make it mega reliable. I was once riding it through a forest and say two bald eagles perched in a tree. They were gone before I could get their pic, but many such great memories.

Knowing what - and how much - to take on a long ride can be a tricky buisness. We've taken the guess work out of it, and tell you what you need while traveling light.

There are three essentials to cover: fluid, food, and tools.

We recommend, if possible, taking two bottles and filling up mid ride to make sure you are not burdened with unnecessary weight. Take one piece of food per hour, but you need to find out what works for you.

Finally, take two inner tubes, pump and a multi tool to cover the basic mechanical issues you might encounter. Remember though that nothing substitutes a well serviced bike before you set out.

Broken Rear Derailleur? How To Make A Singlespeed And Ride Home


Broken Rear Derailleur? How To Make A Singlespeed And Ride Home

How can you fix a broken derailleur hanger or rear mech?
Subscribe to GCN on YouTube: http://gcn.eu/gcnsubs

Don't reach for your mobile phone! If your rear mech or hanger breaks when you're cycling, improvise and turn your bike into a singlespeed.

You will need: a chain tool, allen keys and preferably a a quick link.

This fix should work on all types of rear mechs: Shimano, Campagnolo and SRAM, although it won't work on a full suspension mountain bike.

First, you'll need to open your chain. If you're using a powerlink or other quick link, this should be easy. If not, you'll need to use your chain tool. Then, remove the rear mech and un-thread the chain from the broken mech.

You'll need to select a gear where the chain line is straight, put the chain back on, and reattach it with either the quick link or using your chain tool.

You should now be good to go. This system will be weaker than your previous set up, so avoid putting too much pressure on the chain.
