Trek 520 disc. Masi Giramondo (if you can find one). Salsa Fargo for lots of off road. I splurged and went with a Lynskey Backroad titanium (and now I need a big lock)...

The Fargo and the Backroad give me the best reach to stack ratio allowing for a more upright position and I have them both.

Have you looked at the Lynskey Carbon Adventure Fork? I just got a Backroad and it came with this fork.

How are you measuring your inseam? It really requires two people using the "book between the legs against a wall in sock feet" method.

How do you feel this surface compares to your other SA saddle?

A saleslady at REI told me they don't sell EVent products any more because it works so much better than Goretex that Goretex threatened to pull all of it's products! I'm looking hard at that Showers Pass jacket even though it's pretty pricey.

Your tires should be fine and as a new guy you can probably ask what pressure others are running. Prepare to get your heart rate up near redline and hold it there! And go practice mounts and dismounts! Have fun!

And when you get close to Louisville, hit me up for anything you need! (I started to say, "We ain't got nunna them WiFis in these here parts" in my best tobacco chewing KY drawl!)

Did the OP go on tour? How did it go? (and don't be ashamed if you didn't!)

If those summer temps don't scare you I'm impressed. I lived for years out there and it gets REALLY hot, dangerously hot... and if you had a mechanical you might wait by the road for hours with no shade for a truck to pass by. Just sayin... Have a GREAT trip and when you get near Louisville, KY send me a message and we'll talk!

What is "shipping from GB"?  Great Britain?

From the NPS website: "Additional paving on the south ramp and coffer dam removal on the north ramp is still needed, though, so short-term closures can be expected in early spring/summer 2021."

Case in point. I ordered the Idaho Hot Springs mapset a couple of years ago but life and fires conspired to keep me away.
