How did the frame bag bladder work out for you? I’ve tried it before, but it took too much effort to suck the water up the tube every time (as opposed to having it hanging downhill over your shoulder).

I had great luck with it. I think some of it has to do with the sloping top tube of the bike. This allows gravity to do it’s thing with the bladder on a slight incline. It seemed as if the hose stayed full of water and was easily drank from whenever needed. Definitely worked out well, and I plan on sticking with this setup on my new rig.

Can you route this route using Also, where did you collect water? Would this ride be doable in September? I am looking for a good 1 or 2 nighter to do in the eastern sierras in mid September. Thanks!
