New Scorpion and Aidoo trailer for JaYoe world tour

Here is the awesome Aidoo fully suspended trailer, replacing several failed trailers that could not hold up to Matt Galat’s rugged needs on his planetary trek. He also has a new HP Velotechnik Scorpion fs20 trike (yellow replaces black), and some cool side seat mounts and bags from TerraCycle in Portland, Oregon. Additional photos of this new superior set-up can be found HERE, and scrolling down the page a ways.

  2. Well, his albatross is the fact that he is a professional cinematographer who is documenting this pedal-pushing tour of Planet Earth, thus what you see here is what is necessary for hauling a considerable amount of film documentary equipment. He does all his own filming out on the road, so must be self sufficient with his gear. If he was simply taking a tour of the planet, he could travel much lighter. I understand his conundrum because I plan on creating a documentary of my trek later this year, and already find myself debating about this or that piece of equipment to get the perfect shots for the film. To be able to make the best documentary, a rider has to carry a load of cinematography equipment, and on top of that, has to spend a huge amount of time setting up tripods and cameras for “ride by” shots and other cool images. The costly Aidoo trailer is necessary to keep his even more costly camera gear suspended from the inferior roads he rides during his five-year trip.
