    It will be of the carbon variety. :) Not a carbon Bucksaw, although that would be amazing.

    I definitely trust and use MSR and Platy bags, but the only MSR bag you'd want to use are the lighter versions. I tend to prefer using two Platy Big Zip reservoirs and just cycle between the two. I...

    Close. Sorta. I don't want to count my chickens before they hatch, but I have some fun potential projects lined up for this rig should it become available for me.

    I've got a fatbike, and another hopefully on route. Not sure I have "the bug" but I do really enjoy riding them. I'm in Prescott but I've ridden my fatbike all over from Moab to Iceland this year.

    As much as I love what Eric and Andrew make for Bikepacking gear, I would still advocate using Ortlieb panniers for longer tours. Few panniers are more proven. Plus, they're waterproof, very light,...

    It's not quite like DWR. These new downs are treated on a nano molecular level, each microscopic plume fiber coated. DWR is akin to a thick (read easily removed) layer of heavy hydrophobic coatings....

    I think there's just a different culture of design and manufacturing between Shimano and SRAM. It doesn't lead me to believe SRAM is inferior, but just prone to more kinks during the production life...

    I have never, and I really do mean never, had issues with any Shimano components and I'm not a component loyalist. I'd go with the 105 crank.

    I spoke to another rider last August who just cancelled such a trip for 2015. Not able to find a route along the eastern coast, or now western coast, he pulled the plug. He had ridden several hundred...

    Overland Journal AT Tire Test

    Earlier this year Overland Journal completed and published an extensive and detailed test of the leading AT tires on the market. Months in the making, it consumed a full week of time for a full team...

    Sorry, I was just thinking of the new GSA. I recently priced them out for an editorial, and even with modest options and add-ons, out the door with taxes...$28,100. Average base is $23,500. Throw in...

    A $30,000 1200 GSA seems woefully overdone for a commuter. Same could be said of even a $14,000 800 GSA. You could have the same commuter comfort on just abut any adventure bike from a VStrom 650 to...

    Flip flops in summer. Pakems in all other cooler seasons.

    I love Pakems. They're easy to clean is one thing. They have a good sole, slip on in an easy one-handed effort. They come with a bomber...

    Another curiosity...for the better part of 20 years I used and loved Ortlieb cycling panniers. Their moto stuff seriously sucks.

    If you want to hike the canyon, you will have to get in front of the permit process at the appropriate time. It's complicated, but I can help with it. The Grand Canyon is really arduous hiking. The...

    One of the most amazing wilderness landscapes we have, and one of the most amazing on earth, is the Grand Canyon. The main trail systems swarm with tourists, by design, but other areas of the park...

    The Kriega 60 Overland system has been my preferred soft bag system designed to work with a rack, but they only interface with a handful of rack options. I think the Mosko bags are sharp in design,...

    I ride a 650 BMW GS Dakar. It's awesome. I picked it up for a song, under $5500, with less than 5,000 miles on the odometer. It's pretty awesome for what it is. You can read about that very bike...

    As Scott said, he's put a good bit of time on the Stelvio we have in the temporary fleet. I've only ridden it a bit here and there, not much off-road and I do really love it as well. I'm always...

    The marathons are incredibly durable, and most people don't realize how little tread is needed for most rides on gravel. It's more about tire volume than anything.

    I think much depends on how much you ride, and how much tread you need. In some years I'll log 4-5,000 miles of gravel and just burn through tires left and right. I chew through MSO's pretty quickly....

    Not much about his bike was known until today. Even now, we only have an idea what it might look like if it sees production, which looks likely given the advance prototype shown today in Italy.
