    Pictures from our last trip in the Algoma backcountry. 200 miles from searchmont Ontario to Wawa with no fuel stops. Several large water crossings (hydrolocked two bikes). Rally kit did extremely well, had enough fuel to make it 200 miles.

    How does this new tower attached to the headtube? I was going to inquire on how the original was holding up using the two bolts previously outlined.

    This setup has 3 bolts. Two previous shown and one additional one located on the top of the bracket. It’s very solid, however, if I was to re-do it again I would just weld a bracket on. Reason being the bulky bracket just complicates the setup and reduces space for wires/ brackets.
