Good weather, a good trekking bicycle (no suspension), too much equipment (of course) and a question that I found was never solved: how do you take a medium to large camera equipment (big DSLR, 3 zooms, long telephoto, Berlebach tripod) with you on a bicycle? How do you protect it from a good (bad) shaking?
I tried a rucksack, but the equipment weighs about 10 kilos plus the tripod, the center of gravity is too high with it, and my back is too weak. Many photographers use backpacks and like it, I don't.
I asked my camera dealer: is there a camera bag especially made for cyclists, e.g. extremely padded to protect my costly camera gear and with a bike mounting. No, not really.
I asked my bicycle dealer: is there a pannier especially made for photo equipment, e.g. extremely padded to protect my costly camera gear. His proposals:
- a trailer filled with bubble wrap
- a new bicycle, full suspension, , 2000 bucks
How do you transport your camera equipment on a bicycle? Did you find (or invent) the full-suspension carrier that I can bolt on my bicycle?
