    Awesome Vaya! Super nice build. Ti stem and post (and racks!?)? I'm a bit jealous of your budget.

    How is the saddle? Any fears of that sucker creaking incessantly down the road?

    I think we ran into you on RAGBRAI this year. I'm riding an LHT, but my tour partner rides a Sutra, both of us fully loaded. I only saw one Sutra at RAGBRAI besides my partner's, I think it might have been you. We met at a HyVee store in Coralville I think! Anyway, it's a nice looking bike to be sure!

    I like that fourth bottle location! Currently on my 26" LHT I have my pump mounted there, and the front bottle mount I carry my stove fuel tank. If needed I have two more water bottles that I stash in my panniers. But yeah! I like that aft bottle location! I think a bottle will fit there, even though I have fenders. Now where to mount the tire pump?

    under the top tube? some mounts for some pumps can be zip tied there, at least there it wont get mud and crud thrown up on it from the front wheel.

    surely Shirley can settle for some sassy bike with a similar sounding signoff, si?

    LOL! That's so cool! I named my LHT that because my neighbor kept calling her Shirley. I gave up, and named her.

    Cool name though, no?! Picture?

    Just a quick pic of my Salsa Vaya before heading out on a "training" ride. I ride 150 miles a week, but on a carbon bike. My friend and I are setting out on the GAP trail in a month, so once a week, I am going to load up the Vaya in touring mode and put in 40-50 miles. A 17lbs race bike is a completely different beast than this pig.

    Your Vaya sounds like it needs a loving home...

    Indeed. Don't be surprised if you eventually find yourself loving your Vaya more than your CF bike.

    Also, my base kit for touring weighs less than your carbon bike. ;-)

    Nah....my Vaya and I have a good relationship! It is going to be my primary ride from Mid-October through Early April. Actually I built it over the winter to replace my old bad weather bike (CrossCheck). If I could only have one bike, it would be the Vaya. My carbon Roubaix is just a summer fling!

    I got in right at 50 miles on the Vaya today. Obviously it was tougher to get up to speed, but it really was an awesome ride. I stopped at an old train station a few towns away and took another pic. Notice the new saddle. I love the Selle SMP saddles, but I thought something a tad bit wider might make sense.

    My Paris Sport, fully loaded, on 1979 self-contaiend Trip from Winter Park to Durango

    I loved this bike. I bought in the early '70's in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, took it over at least 9 passes in Colorado in 1979, fully loaded. Sadly, my Paris Sport was stolen in the mid-1980's. Sorry, if this gets posted to the wrong place. I'm having a little trouble figuring out how to do this.
