This is our first time out on a bike, and I have just one kid, so that makes things a lot easier. Last year we went yurt to yurt ski touring, so comfy accomadations every night, but he loves camping so that part's not a problem. We'll see how it goes.

Yep, Topeak Road Morph, the best portable pump made IMHO. Can get road tires up to 120psi without any trouble. The also have a Mountain version that is slightly higher volume, but I don't think it has the gauge.

Nice set up Skyler! How do you like your handlebar grips? I have the Brooks perforated tape myself.

I really like my Velo Orange elkhide bar covers -- they feel good and look great. However, they are a pain to install. I'm probably slower than average, but it took me almost four hours to install them. If I did it again I could probably cut it down to two or three hours, but I'm not sure if I'll want to invest that much time the next time. Hopefully it will be a long time before I have to make that decision.

yeah I just rode through them in August on my cross country tour, thought that view looked familiar! Did you go over from Buffalo and then down the other side into Ten Sleep Canyon? That place was amazing.

Yeah thats what we did as well. The Canyon was gorgeous. I know alot of people go West to East, but I think thats one area where we definitely were going the right direction. That view was worth the long climb.

Funny, I'm from Delaware as well and it sounds like we were going through that area close to the same time. Small world.

I live close to Seaford, in Southern Delaware. Yeah, we had the same experience. Climbing up the mountain we were chilly and even considered wearing a coat while at the top. But coming down it got real hot real fast. Supposedly it was 114 in Ten Sleep that day.

That looks to be all kinds of awesome, and certainly less expensive than regular brooks bar tape.

>17.3kg means greater than 17.3kg, it was just a random number pulled out of the air as a joke.

If it was a country fair though and I had just paid a pound for the chance to win a free carvery at the dog and duck I would bet
80.1 kg for the load.
