2 day CDA forest bike trip starts tonight. This bike is so wonderful. With fatty Hetres or with knobbie Quasi-motos, it's a pleasure to ride.
The funny yellow turds hanging off the rack are a rain jacket and a synth down vest. In the bag goes food and a water filter. A tool set and an emergency bivvy live in the rear bag.
We'll be car camping, then riding all day, then back to fancy-pants camp with tents, an easy-up, two stoves, beer, ice.
Speaking of Rawland -- check out the discussion on the Rawland blog. Next version of the Sogn is going to use OS 747 and 858 tubing. This will be the go-to recommendation bike, but they're only doing a small run. I'm trying to talk Liza into the small (747) as her do-all bike and a replacement for her Rock. But that's a huge sell.
