Northern Vietnam Equipment List
This is an incomplete list of some of the gear that I carried, including the bike that I bought for about 80USD in Hanoi. I did not put a lot of thought into packing or the bike this time, but the whole set-up turned out to be pretty comfortable. The weather was a bit warmer than I expected, so I probably could have done without some of the leg warmers and maybe even a fleece jacket. Merry and Scott clearly had the superior set-up with the tricked-out tandem and super efficient packing.
