Bike & Gear Advice

There is plenty of climbing, some of it steep. Much of the route is paved, and many of the dirt sections are relatively smooth. We rode hard-tails and appreciated our front suspensions on ~10-15% of the route; a rigid frame would be fine. We used 1.9” tires, 1.5” should be OK, but we wouldn’t do it on skinny tires. We travel light, as described on our Great Divide trip report.
