!! HELP !!
I'm guessing that this is a common question. Should I purchase a
Hennessey Ultralight Backpacker Asym w/ large fly OR a Speer 8.0A?
I'm a 5ft 10in, 175lbs, bicycle tourist from Connecticut. I completed
a TransAm ride (Northern Tier) this past summer.
I'm interested in 1) lightening my load and 2) mosquito protection.
Hennessey PLUSSES; Weight, Cost
Speer PLUSSES; Winter conditions, bug protection
What do y'all think?
Pray for Peace ... JIM
