Well done Chad. I read you blog and found this website, good stuff. Congrats on finishing in such a short amount of time! I heard you just recently started to ride a rigid ss!

Is your bike custom built for you with that very short non suspension corrected fork? I don’t think I have ever seen a 29″ frame with a fork that short before.

It is a 26/29 rigid fork, 445 vs the 465 normal length.

Loved reading about your trip. You’ve got some really nice gear and bike. Some day I would love to do a trip this amazing, but I will have to train up for it obviously.

Those osprey packs are nice, eh? My friend’s uncle owns Osprey and I have always been a fan of their gear.
