So I have a grand master plan in my head and am currently in the planning stages, I need a little wisdom and input.
I am planning on taking a one way Pacific Coast ride from California to the Seattle area. I plan on camping out the whole trip.
I ride a Cannondale CAAD8. Carbon fork and seatpost, rest is aluminum.
Right now I am leaning toward a trailer for the trip. The reasons for the trailer being the obvious storage increase, minimal or no change to the bike as well as flexibility for the future. I also like the idea of easy unloading and packing, nice space for a solar panel...
I am wondering how well that will work with the Road bike. From what I have gathered there is some hesitation. Is it a "bad idea" or more of a "less than ideal" kind of scenario? What kind of downsides can I expect? Any strong feelings to make me reconsider?
I am not looking at changing bikes as this is my baby and owning multiple bikes isn't an option. I am essentially moving and am not looking at adding possessions.
I appreciate the help.
