The Resolutes are a rad tyre - I find they actually roll real fast because of the tight 1-2-1 knobs down the middle (which is very similar to the Compass Steilacoom...

You're smack bang in the middle of a size 56. The Renegades are a decently long bike (same reach as say, Jamis' race bike Xenith).

I'm tempted to grab a Jamis Renegade Expert/Elite - but want a minimum of 42mm tire clearance in the rear. Does anyone have a photo of a 42mm (or bigger) tire in the rear of their carbon Renegade?...

It's a Fabric tool keg. I had to use a Wolf Tooth B-RAD 2 to position it correctly as it contacted the chain ring (you can also use the Topeak Alt-Position adapter too) due to the narrow steel tubes....

I'm also running a 11-42t on my Renegade, but with a Wolftooth Tanpan and XT derailleur. WT advice that an 11-40 is a max for the 105/Ultegra med-cage rear derailleurs.

If you want lower gears I'd...

Can't see if you have anything mounted on the seat tube bottle cage bolts, but why not mount your 2nd bottle there rather than on the seat post? Looks like you have plenty of room, especially with...

Haha - it is an adventure bike ;).

I agree - for a day ride, a bag is overkill if you pack properly and wear a proper bike jersey.

Ha - nope. Escapade is mine, the Exploit is the girlfriends and the Expat is a mate's. We were on a recent backpacking trip and thought they were looking rather handsome all lined up matchy-matchy.

Ride quality I didn't notice a real difference - difficult to tell as they had different wheels and small changes in PSI would have made more of a difference.
