I've been on the fence on this one but I'm pulling the trigger now. Trans-Wisconsin I will be going more as a tour ride than competing, but couldn't resist being in it the first year. The Masi touring bike will get it's first real action, well I'm sure I'll get a couple overnights in before that. I will need to practice some single track with bags and gear and my crankset (50x34) might get reconsidered for something more mountain bikish. The 34X28 being the lowest gear might come back to bite me.

The Super-Sekret Camping Rig is going to probably be rolling on either 2.1 Nanoraptors or some big 2.4's with as little knob as possible.

so Squirrel that pic tells me that the motorcycle didn't make it either. (they took a picture) and I don't think 2.55 tires would help in that. maybe a pugsley. Not sure on the rig but I think 35c and some lower gears. I can't carry 5 days supplies in my backpack. And Steve Fargos are cheating! Super-Human-Frankenbike.
