That's great to hear. I've been there two or three times when I've traveled through that area.

Congrats on the 3 Gap. That's a tough one. There were a butt load of cyclists on Wolf Pen Gap a couple of weeks ago when I rode the 60/129/180 loop on the Tiger. No way would I ride those roads on a bicycle. Too many nutcases on sport bikes using all of the road.

edit: BTW, Bill has done a great job with the new Two Wheels of Suches. The food and the service is better than it used to be in the past.

Hey does any one have any revelate designs stuff.I thinking of putting some bikepacking stuff on the LHT and run smaller rear panniers. A Tangle frame bag and a large seat bag, and run less stuff on rear rack. Plus I could use the stuff on the Mt Bike.

Those frame bags look good presuming they leave enough room for you to keep water bottles. I know a lot of MTB guys use the Camelbacks for water so it isn't a big deal for them but I'd rather have water on e frame than on my back if possible.

I have a Tangle frame bag that I use for long unsupported rides. It's fairly roomy, mounts securely and my legs don't hit it while I pedal. I'd like to try some bikepacking and have been thinking about adding a Viscacha seat pack. Together with my Deuter 30L backpack, I should be good for a weekend. A riding buddy has toured quite a bit with several Revelate bags and raves about them.

I ride a huge bike, a 60 cm.I've measured the distance from the top tube to where I think the bag will hang( there web site says 6" ) I should have enough room for a tall bottle on both cages,but not a 1.5 liter bottle on the seat tube.One nice thing about the LHT is it has 3 bottle cages. I hate a pack on a bike,I don't like to were one when I commute. I figure, I've spent the money on the panniers I may as well use them.

I have two Tangle bags... a medium and small if you want to try fit on your frame. I should be close to home all this weekend... might even take a day off this week.
