So, that leaves me with a problem. My do everything bike (Salsa Fargo) is currently in cyclocross configuration. Meaning, big knobby tires, no fenders, no racks, and after the two races last weekend....exceedingly dirty. So Saturday morning it was time to make the transition. I didn't take pictures early on so you'll have to believe me when I say I hosed everything down and scrubbed until my bike looked as close to new as possible.
|Here we are cleaned up and beginning the transition into touring mode....meaning I did one simple thing....added a rear rack.|
|Next up....tire change out.|
|Old knobby....new slicks.|
|Small problem with a tire quick change....the stupid things are full of stan's sealant and in a tubeless configuration. For this trip I'm switching back to tubes. Long story short...Stan's sealant is fucking messy stuff.|
|Updated to touring configuration and as clean as it's been in years!|
|Rear panniers, frame bag, and handlebar bags added.|
