The Equipment


 

The main piece of equipment that I need for this event is a Bike....


Specialized Stump Jumper Mountain Bike



If you have read other sections of this web site, you will know I own a Marin Wolf Ridge (Full Suspension) which is stored in the United Kingdom. Since coming to the UAE, I did wonder whether to purchase a different model or ship the Marin over!


In the end, I decided to purchase this Specialized Stump Jumper from the UK (Second hand, hardly used) and ship it over to the UAE. The main reason why I purchase this bike was the fact that it was one of the last models to have fox front and back active suspensions. When I have used the Marin Wolf Ridge in the UK, one problem I experience on flat terrains is that a lot of the forward momentum is lost by the back suspension unit.


However, with the Specialized Stump Jumper, whether cycling flat, going up or down hill, the active suspension mechanism assists with keeping the rear suspension rigid on flat terrains and less rigid on mountainous / hills or off road. In plain English (not!), this will help in maximising the forward momentum and not loosing energy in a vertical manor.



Other Equipment
(Currently in place)

Other equipment I have in place to assist with this challenge is as follows:

  • Two water bottles (1 with insulation to keep water cool)
  • One Water Rucksack
  • Front and Back Lights
  • Seat pouch (for bike tools etc)
  • 2 inner tubes (in case of punctures etc)
  • One pair of fingerless biking gloves (which will need to be replaced soon as holes are appearing)
  • 2/3 sports tops and shirts with cycling shorts
  • Two pairs of trainers
  • Various sports socks
  • Sony Cybershot 3D camera (16 MPix, GPS, HD video, Manual and custom Settings)
  • Action camera (s) for mounting on a helmet or handle bars
  • GPS enabled mobile phone

Iím sure Iíll need a few more things, so any suggestions are welcome!
