So its okay, from your perspective, to bag your stuff but you are against the idea of using waterproof bags because?? Too practical??I am not against waterproof bags, I have no experience with them. However, from my perspective they aren't necessary and I won't be rushing out to replace my non-waterproof bags until they wear out, and even then the next set may not be waterproof.
Also, those "Dura Ace" barends are intended more for time trial bikes aero bars than for touring use. Again, Dura Ace isn't bought by tourists.
but I don't think Flagstaff is okay for cycling right now.Flagstaff if open and mostly in good condition. There is a stoplight down low controlling one way traffic where half the road is gone. It is expected to be closed to all traffic M-F 8:30-3:30 starting sometime in June for ~5 months while repairs are made.
