I've had a short dirt overnighter planned with some friends for awhile. It's in a couple weeks so the obsessing is starting in earnest now.
It's all dirt roads. Logging roads mostly. Lots of climbing. Hopefully some nice views. I plan on taking Phil's RB-T.
And I don't plan on making a bunch of changes. I put a Brooks on there last week and I've taken the bike for a few rides. It pretty much works out of the box. Since we'll be all dirt and I've guaranteed no rain to my friends, I plan on removing the fenders and putting fat WTB knobbies on it.
I thought of swapping out the bars, but they'll be fine. I'll put some different pedals on it. The shifting seems ok. If I was more thorough, I'd overhaul the hubs and the bottom bracket, but I'll gamble on those. I will clean and lube the chain. Otherwise it's good to go.
Question. What the hey is this:
I've never seen that before. Anyone?
