All I packed is carefully chosen for its weight and quality. Besides water and food, the bike and additional equipment weights only about 35 kilos in total.

Surly Long-Haul Trucker (LHT) was chosen as a bike for this adventure. Surly LHT has a steel frame that is built for tough conditions. It is equipped with the most common parts from Shimano to facilitate repairs as are the regular tires, that hopefully can be replaced almost anywhere.
