Not much to say here. The bike and its components held up without problems during the tour.
* The Marathon Supremes just ate up the kilometers with no flats or punctures at all. They've been on the bike since October 2016 sans flats.
* I spent a fair amount of time at 19 gear-inches on the climb to 1,200masl on the Northern Cross. This put a bit of strain on the SRAM Dual Drive II hub which does not shift into the granny band as instantly as it did before the tour. It will engage no problem, but just not as crisply as before.
* i had an intermittent creak in the BB area. No functional impact, though.
* wheels still true. The 14-spoke front wheel just keeps on rolling.
* SLX shifter mated to Zee RD keeps on shifting crisply and accurately time and time again. No a single mis-shift or ghost shift.
