I bought the same bike, was looking for a Ritchey Breakaway and once I saw the color I knew it had to be British Racing Green! I travelled with it once to Guam for a week, a buddy and me rode the entire Southern tip of the island. They ride great and no chatter on mine either with Shorty Ultimates.

Love that color.

Out of curiosity, how is your frame pump attached?

yes, great riding bikes, and although i havent weighed mine, it "feels" surprisingly light even with a heavy phil wood BB and no other weight weenie parts on it.

frame pump is just held in there with spring tension. since the headtube junction is so tight, the head of the pump wedges in there tight, and the seat tube coupler bolt clamp is a perfect cradle for the handle section.

i've ridden over some super rough terrain and the pump never moves or rattles a bit.

I'm running SRAM Rival 1, not much weenie parts either and it comes in at about 19 pounds.

Very cool looking bike! Do you have any travel plans with it?

it is indeed a swift bag, not sure the model name anymore, bought it a while ago. i'd default to Paulo's instinct.

the bagman is a super solid support for it too. just rode over lots of rough terrain and it was rock solid.

while in practice, it's never been an issue in the least, i've never been super comfortable having a 24h wheel in the rear for an offroad adventure bike, so built a rear this weekend from a sweet i9 torch hub and pacenti forza offset rear rim.

also switched to bon jon pass tires to give them a whirl.

set-up is pretty sweet now, though we'll see if the bon jons prove the durability of the overrides, or if i even need that.

i like this photo because it shows so many of my favorite things in one shot:

-campy
-WH
-phil wood
-paul components
-pacenti
-i9
-ritchey
-king ti
-compass

Let me know how the tubeless experiment goes with the travel bike. I'm curious to do it on my S&S bike but don't want to deal with a leaky tire in the case (I have to deflate a bit to get the wheels to fit).
