  • Thanks for all your well wishes and support! It was Sunday afternoon when my ankle/fibula broke, so this week was pretty interesting. Luckily we do have some videos filmed from before the accident, so we’ll be working on those first.

  • This is one of my favorite episodes because you're showing someone who isn't an experienced mechanic how to repair things which is cool. I'm also an adventure rider and was curious as to how much his bike weighs loaded. You have to weigh the bike then put all the gear in a bin and weigh it on a bathroom scale.

  • Giving someone some of your time should be prized at highest regard. Im proud of you Seth for helping this dude out with tweaking up his bike. I will add one thing though, I HATED the idea of kick stands but after you go on a bikepacking trip, you will learn to appreciate one. Mackenzie if you are reading this, get yourself one that attaches to one of your chainstays, it will become invaluable the further you trek.

  • If you are into bicycle touring, you really should be able to service your own bike. Thank you for explaining everything on every step. When touring, I really loved those days when I have been in the wild, days from closest help should my bicycle fail on me, really brings in the freedom aspect of touring.

  • Ugh, you ARE wrong. Start at bar end, not top. Then again, what does a mountain biker know about bar tape?

  • Just popped in to say I love the color of those bags on an otherwise black bike. Looks sweet. [edit] 1) bars do not need to be more supple. He clearly has enough core strength that it was not a complaint. 2) bars were wrapped bottom up- no need for a barend on the right when touring unless it’s an easily removed stash cap. The left should be a mirror. 3) oh frick no. You wrapped top down. What the heck is wrong with you. 4) this guy is not going to have any use for any of those tools except for the bottle opener!
