And for the bike nerd community… how to rebuild a 2001 Birdy folding bike, fit panniers on it, and prepare it for a massive tour - blogged:

@jonworth Great to revisit this.

I don’t remember if I told you about my luggage experiences with my Birdy of roughly the same period.

The rear rack - supported by a cable from the saddle - was a disaster. But the front rack was actually pretty good. And interestingly, with weight on the front it damped the suspension enough I could take my hands of the bars while riding.
