    Handlebar bag and a medium seat bag should be all you need. There are some reasonably priced options at Velo Orange.

    If you are going to run the H bar, then get the troll. The LHT will have a shorter top tube intended to fit properly with drop bars. Both bikes will carry you and all your gear, but fit is going to...

    That bike should work. There are no guarantees with machine built wheels, some last and some don't. Get a good wheelbuider to tension them before riding to help the odds in your favor. Get rid of...

    Get a Cross Check. I here the Straggler is pretty good too, but I still like bar end shifters and Cantis.

    I would go 27.5 in a full sus. I am 5'8" and ride medium frames on my 29ers all rigid. Test rode a medium Specialized Camber 29er awhile back, cockpit felt good but seemed very sluggish and felt...

    I think it will do fine. I am only about 210, but I beat the crap out of my Cross check for years before I had rear wheel issues; jumps, drops, rocks, trees, loaded touring, and hopping cattleguards...

    You will get twice the punctures on the fatbike as with a regular bike. More tire on the ground and the casings are pretty thin because so many riders select tires based on weight. Even so I have...

    I ran them on my cross check for a few years. The rear will last about 1500 miles before it wears thin enough to start getting punctures. I used to change mine at the first flat, because they get...

    If you are scared of toeclips, you may be better off with a good set of BMX platform pedals. They will have a larger platform than your stockers and replacable metal pins that dig into your shoes...

    I do know cold, I grew up in northeast Ohio and lived north of Chicago for a few years. The original poster says he's from South Carolina. Shouldn't be a problem.

    It'll be fine. There are only about 3 models of 700c rim that are too wide for a 32mm tire, they are very difficult to find and don't come stock on any bikes except for the Surly Krampus.

    The solid axle may be stronger, but you will have to add a 15mm wrench to your tool kit. I managed to break a front axle on one of my mountain bikes a few years back, and put a standard replacement...

    20mph for short rides is doable. It gets tough to keep that average for more than an hour unless you are in a group. You will do yourself more good trying to get some longer rides in on the...
