surprised you didn't go with another set of braze ons so you could rock a bag and some panniers if you wanted to.

In all likelihood, a rando bag + bikepacking bags is all I'll really need. As is, I could run a lowrider rack and panniers, plus a front roll if I really needed to carry that much stuff.

Have to wrap the bars and a couple other details, but couldn’t resist a quick blast through Brooklyn this afternoon.

Thanks guys! Rode it yesterday and had a blast of a shakedown ride on some Western CT gravel and dirt roads.

Geo is pictured below, trail is 51 by my calculation. I wasn't really looking for low-trail, as most of my riding is without a front load, but I wanted a bike that would handle a front bag without major issues.

Everything coming together nicely. Rack and bag were fantastic.
