Burn Baby Burn

We will be using our trusty Trangia as the main cooking stove for this trip. We are also supplementing more fire & cooking power with a self made cat can stove for those days where food need to be cooked ‘fast’ for the hungry cyclist.

Metho All the Way

Metho Powered Trangia

Post trip review: The trangia performed flawlessly as long there is enough metho to go around. As we were riding in the backroads of Australia, metho was easily found. A standard size metho cost about AUD 5.00 could last us two for about 10 days cooking once a day for dinner.

The trangia maintenance was low as guaranteed by trangia. Windy conditions also was not a problem as it comes with its own wind proof piece. Our trangia  was the duossal version. Its very tough and no matter how you abuse the pots & pan, scrubbing everyday it still performs well.

The only drawback of the stove was the speed. It takes longer to cook overall. This can be a bit of an issue after a long hard day of riding and you need a good warm meal in the fastest time possible.

As we cook fairly decent meals for dinner (i.e. veg-meat-carbs) to make sure we have adequate supplement, using the trangia can take a longer time as compared to a gas stove.

Overall its still a great stove and performs exceptionally well over the years.
