|Overview of Pacer rando rig|
|Wired computer and cue sheet light|
|Double stem setup to lower bag|
|Not much clearance but enough|
|Yes, quick release. In ride adjustment to change pressure points.|
|My rear loves this seat.|
|Flat for now.|
At this point the Pacer has served very well and would be the perfect rando rig if I could raise the brake pivot mounts to get 1/8" more fender clearance. If anyone has any ideas to increase the fender clearance please share them! The fenders are fine except when on gravel roads sand and such make a sort of nonstop shhhhhhh sound.
I love the handling and fit. Why didn't I just get a Long Haul Trucker? This bike felt much better in terms of handling and that ever debated and elusive category of speed/responsiveness.
The Pacer was also a great choice because if I ever build up a different bike with more braze ons and such and better clearance I will know exactly what I want since this bike fits perfectly now. It has basically been a multi-year Fit Works test. Don't expect any new exciting bikes for a number of years though because unless I have a lot more time to ride it just isn't justified.
The pictures and captions mostly say it all. The changes I have made are mostly gearing and fit related. Mechanically the bike has performed very well.
