The Bike

After taking Bruce The Bike on a few cyclocamping trials I came to realize that he was not the bike for this adventure; the U-brake isn’t strong enough for mountain descents, the shifters allowed for only seven gears in the back – and while that could be changed, it proved to be too much work in too little time, without knowing whether it would even work. Enter… the Surly Long Haul Trucker, with MANY thanks to Topanga Creek Outpost!
