Cycle tourers are positive people.
On this forum it seems we generally focus on the equipment that worked. We write about what we did right. We discuss the correct decisions we made.
Well, it is important to learn not only about what worked, but also what failed. So, here is the place for that.
Did you make a really stupid decision on tour?
Did you purchase a piece of equipment that really let you down?
Did you learn something the hard way?
Let's hear it.
