longjohn >> longtail

July 28, 2011
中国乌鲁木齐 (Urumqi, China)

My bike died.
No, it wasn‘t run over by that truck in Luang Prabang.

The steering on the long long-john broke. Again and again and again.

(We rarely had a day’s rest when we rode with the longjohn that we built in Wuhan.)

So we made a long-tail!

The Chinese junkyards are far from the city, but we got the parts for only a few yuan. Bruno and Ballaque got in some welding practice. The neighbors stared.

Now i just need to learn how to pack it . . .
