Save me some already!!!


Hey Gbro: what's your bike setup? I'm going into 2nd rifle via bike this year. Terrain is mostly old 4x4 roads:
giant Ranier
Single Speed: 28x23
panniers rated for 50lbs.
2.4 Tubeless captains.
Bob trailer (70lb rating).
185 rotors on my disk brakes.

I've done a test ride: 12 miles up the canyon on dirt roads with 65lbs of water in the bob and 20 lbs of water in the panniers in 2 hours 15. I can't go anywhere fast with that gear ratio, but you can get a lot of weight moving pretty easily.
I'm right about the metric system 3/4 of the time.
