Alan Jansen lives in southern California, and rides his bright yellow HP Velotechnik Scorpion FS in the high reaches of the southern Mojave Desert, which translates to: riding most of the year because the weather is nearly always dry, and the ground is mostly flat. I have ridden here with Alan, and can attest that the Great Wide Open is indeed still alive and well in these parts! Some guys have all the luck. Here are some photos of Alan and his German built triple:

Pannier Volume Conversion:One liter equals 61 cubic inches. Doing the math, if a pair of cargo bags is 60 liters, such as the Arkel RT-60 recumbent panniers, this converts to 3,660 cubic inches (60x61). Pannier manufacturers are known to express size both ways, which can be frustrating to a potential customer attempting to compare two different companies. Visualizing cubic inches may be challenging, thus converting to liters may help the mind's analytical eye.
