I could do the Tour Divide on this. I could carry waders, a fly rod, plenty of materials/tools to tie flies, a warmer bag, a nice pad, a comfy chair, good food, and even.........beer. I wonder if I would clench my teeth when I twisted the throttle? And I realized something else after looking at my Orbea when I got back home. It's also orange and black. Hmmmmmmm.
