Nothing new to add to this but my 2014 ranges between 150-180 miles. I carry a Rotopax 1gal for longer trips. Sounds like you should be good with just a few extra liters. Enjoy the bike.

Afternoon rain storms are a fact of life in the Colorado mountains. Be prepared for rain whichever direction you decide to ride. An afternoon soaking can be both good and bad.

Curious if anyone has dropped to a 14 on the front counter shaft sprocket and would care to comment? The gearing seems a little tall for the really steep loose stuff.
