The Kona Rove Ti frame is kitted out with a Kinesis ATR Disc Fork, USE 29er Carbon MTB Wheels, and a lightweight rear pannier rack. Luggage comes in the form of the Arkel Orca 25 Panniers, a Restrap Framebag, and Restrap Bar Bag. To finish the build, there are a variety of accessories from Lezyne, Wahoo, Bar Fly and USE Exposure Lights.

The Roving Machine


The rear rack holds two panniers, a make-shift frame-top bag, and a spare tyre


Tools and spares stored in the Lezyne Caddy


Food and supplies stashed in the Restrap Framebag (Small size)


Cockpit set-up: USE Summit Alloy Bars, Wahoo ELEMNT, USE Exposure Six Pack, USE Trace


Clement Strada USH Tubeless Tyres


The Arkel Orca 25 Panniers house my clothing and camping equipment


Two Lezyne waterbottle cages, with a Lezyne Road Drive pump


The Restrap Handlebar Bag houses my Nordisk tent and casual clothing


The Fabric Scoop saddle may be changed before the trip, but is on the build at the moment


The Gerber Suspension Multitool sits neatly above the Restrap Framebag


A short 80mm USE Race stem provides a more relaxed riding position


The Kinesis ATR Disc Fork provides a stiff and strong front end


USE Carbon 29er MTB wheels should provide lightweight strength


The Bar Fly DRT Front Mudguard for a little spray protection


A 40T front chainring with an 11-42 cassette will be my mountain gearing


Finishing touches like the Supacaz bar tape help to add comfort and style


A bike capable of going the distance. Let us go a Roving!

  1. Very nice set up. I have the same frame and plane to tour with it this spring. I did a 100 gravel Fondo and it really shinned.
    Cheers
