Yes I've seen the Daambuilt bike before, she's a beaut. Understandable that it's your go to bikepacking rig. 170km in a day, you're fitter than me. My longest rides are only up to 30k or so plus some playing on jump lines in the middle. I don't tend to do all dayers.
3 bottle cages, didn't know it had that! Maybe they've been paying too much attention to Mike Levy at PB.
Sounds like my bike will handle as much distance as I can manage and then some which is good to hear (still loving the Moxie). I can always go back to gears. I used to drive to trails every weekend but in recent years really appreciate longer rides from the door.
I have two sets of wheels (cheaper than 2 bikes), one with Maxxis Rekon/Ikon and the other with DHF/DHR and softer compound (dh set up). First ride of the year with the dh wheels and, jeez what an amazing difference tyres can make. Easy to forget once you get used to lesser tyres shortcomings. Riding them on the road is another matter of course...
