Our Victorian mountains may not be as high as those in other continents but the grades are certainly severe!

With age your legs certainly let you know when they have had enough.

With age comes wisdom - at least for some of us! Safe travels home and enjoy showing Murphy off to folks in Ontario.

Not only will the goat behave, but will keep the grass trimmed as well! Hmmm, might be a good option. 😜

Nice picture! Looks like maybe a blotched blue-tongue. Good to see a live one.

I switched to the GRX crankset for this trip but I had a chance to try it out at home first. I have Di2 on this bike so I replaced my Ultegra 50/34 with the GRX 48/31. I already had an 11/34 on the cassette which I kept along with the Ultegra derailleur. I did need a new chain. As for functionality it is great. I have more gears for climbing and I am generally not strong enough to run out of gears at the speedy end. One caution, it is easier to cross chain so you have to pay closer attention as to what gear you are in an switch to the small ring sooner than you might do with bigger chain rings. Having said that I am now used to it and wouldn’t go back for the Moots my touring bike. I will keep the 50/34 on my road bike. Hope this helps.

Congrats on the Dinner Plain summit!!
I'm curious about the GRX gearing on your Moots. I'm planning to switch to GRX and am wondering what your set-up is and how it's working for you. Thanks, Susan
