The "probably no harm in bringing" argument is a slippery slope. Pretty soon you'll end up with a hundred pounds of gear. Not only does extra stuff add weight, it's extra stuff to keep track of. Only bring essential stuff. Sometimes the decision of what is "essential" is difficult, but it's worth the trouble to figure out.
I am headed down the same route but turning east at Eugene on the Trans America Trail. Is the first week in June too early for the high passes?
Sure I get that, but I'm not up for loading a bike like we do and taking off with any part of my frame crushed! I reckon I'm just funny like that!
But also I've heard about kickstand plates that weren't up to the task of supporting a fully loaded touring bike
Not a tech head so any tube that is part of the frame is the frame, but yeah, chain stays
And I've heard of too many frames being broken by kickstands.
That is what I have now, and one of the companies that told me they were not built for heavy weight. I have been babying it.
