Re: touring on the xtra
- I didn't do it loaded but did lots of hills at the Grand Illinois
Trails & Parks ride the past two years. It wasn't *easy* getting up
the 15% grades around Galena (and traffic cooperated to let me do some
weaving, and then I saw the support van in the rear-view and was
*danged* if I was going to bail before their eyes :-) ).
Debating whether to bring Xtra, Folder or negotiate for both. Since
the Xtra has the smoothies...
