I find myself looking at mountain bikes lately. Especially hardtails that are designed to carry enough gear for self contained tours. While I own a Trek 1120, it’s too big and heavy to really do anything more than load up with gear. It still has under 1000 miles on it, which speaks volume about how limited it for anything besides big loaded off-road trips. I’d like to have a bike that can ditch the gear and still be a fun bike with front suspension to take on trails. I suspect my Salsa Warbird will still be my primary bike, but I want to get up to Wisconsin and Michigan more often. The ATV trails up north demand more than a fast gravel bike. This also means I need to clear out space and finally sell a bike or three.
