Federico Cabrera has been running 'Their Only Portrait' for the past 5 years. 'Their Only Portrait' is a project where Fede bikepacks around South America and takes and gives photos to local people in their small communities, which may be the only photograph they may have of themselves and their families. You can read more details about the project HERE.
For his latest trip Fede rode this Bombtrack Hook EXT. The Hook EXT has plenty of mounting points which is essential for Fede to carry his camera equipment and printer. The front bag houses the camera gear, while a rear rack and micro panniers and full-frame bag house Fede's day to day items.
A 650b Adventure Dynamo Disc wheelset fitted with WTB Byway tyres gives a fast-rolling package, with enough comfort and grip for excursions onto the many gravel roads found in South America. The dynamo powers an Exposure Revo light and a Sinewave revolution USB charger to recharge batteries and gadgets.
A SRAM Rival groupset gives a nice wide gear ratio for those high altitude passes and Fede has opted for a dropper post to help with steep descents.
We have more coming fro Fede in the next few weeks so keep your eyes peeled for more on Fede's adventures.
