The H-Bar / Ergon combo is perfect. I rode 7 days of RAGBRAI last year on it in total comfort. I do need to get another Brooks saddle though as I killed my last one.

Noel, I'm not heading anywhere specific.. just a bunch of gravel and back roads riding this summer. Since my bone graft in January, the doc says NO mountain biking this year.

Thinking about riding up to Gnome Fest this year. Only 200 miles. Easy to ride up in 2 days, hang our for 2 days, then 2 days riding home.

Sweet set up! I know this is from a few years back but I recently acquired and old karate monkey and was looking to convert it into a gravel bike (of sorts).

Did you have to use clamps for the rack and how did you install the fenders>

Cheers, Kevin

Kevin,

For the upper rack mounts, I used P-clamps. The front of the rear fender was attached with a zip tie. The rest were attached using the eyelets on the frame.
