1985 Trek 720, 21" with Racks

I built this up for touring, did a 2K Midwest USA tour with it in 2019, but I'm now doing the N-1 (what?!!) thing as I let go of the Trek and a Miyata Twelve Hundred for a Kona Rove NRB. Anyway......

When switching to the fat bike, I would have a few weeks of soreness in hip muscles. I would eventually adapt, but it required a lot of riding. If you think it might be an issue, look at the Otso...

If you need more leverage

and don't mind spending a few bucks, I recommend the Birzman Damselfly Universal chain tool. Very precise, good solid tool.
