    As I get to ride more fatbikes, I'm beginning to notice wild extremes in performance from entry level to top end. What this means within the scope of your question is thus: A beginner on a lower end...

    Best bottles out there if you ask me. In fact, all Klean Kanteen stuff is awesome. Such a good product, I'm suspect of anyone who doesn't like them.

    I have literally ridden 15,000-25,000 miles on 35-40c tires on gravel, mild sand, and loads of dirt. Not a problem for the vast majority of "improved" yet unpaved roads.

    Heh? Those tires are plenty big. You could tour endless miles of gravel with that bike. And unless you're under 5 feet tall, I can't imagine anyone not fitting it.

    I'm of the opinion that bikepacking is the domain of the tiny light. Speeds are lower, often just hike a bike speed to get up and over a hump. I like small lights with replaceable batteries, either...

    Just for grins, I wondered if my four person MSR Mutha Hubba NX tent would fit in my Bedrock Bags Entrada bar bag....and it does. So, if you were so inclined, you could have a massive tent on your...

    Awesome pics! Eeeks. :)

    I'm only going to be on 208 briefly before I turn west onto 210. That's where the bulk of my river crossings will be. Maybe I can just build a big kicker ramp and jump the...

    No filter for this trip. I'm relying on the fact that Iceland has the cleanest water in the world. Food....for my route....is a major issue.

    So, Jeepgc...

    Do you have any experience driving around the eastern and northern aspects of Katla? Namely the F208 and F210? How about these roads just south of the Fjallabak?
