Video: Getting Ready for WPER!

Team GearJunkie heads to South America and the Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race this week! People often ask about how we prepare for this event. Admittedly, it is a bit overwhelming. The WPER requires months of training, huge amounts of time preparing and packing gear, getting food ready for the event, and then crunching everything down — including a bike — to get it on a plane and fly across the world. This video, a lo-fi production filmed at my house, gives a peek inside some of the gear I will use this year in Chile + a look at the training regimen that has ruled my life over the past half-year as I’ve prepared my body and mind for the big race. —Stephen Regenold

Who makes the bike trainer that you’re using? looks like a pretty sweet set up!

jpea. . . It’s the same frame and fork as last year, but almost everything else — from wheels to seat post to brakes, etc. — is new. Shimano top end all around. Story to come on this “pimp my ride” bike project!
