A couple years back I had
It hasn't been done on a SS yet. A few have tried. It's not a friendly route. So what bike would be best for the beast? Suspension front and rear might be nice...since I don't yet have the (much anticipated) WBR Siren Song I cobbled together a beast with some old parts and came up with this:
FS with tensioner. I've had a tensioner fail before so I'm not so sure this is viable for GLR, but it will be fun to play with in the meantime. And yes, that is a wireless disc PT :)
There is no semi-official date anymore for the GLR but there is quite a bit of semi-serious chatter over on bikepacking.net about aligning a time for a "group ITT." The snowpack at the Columbine snotel is just about zero right now, which might lead one to think the upper reaches of the Tab will clear by ~May 15. However...
I think May 22 would be the soonest it *may* be clear, May 29 being the safer bet. Although the snowpack at Columbine has cleared out about the same time as in '07, the snowpack a mere 2 weeks prior was much deeper this year. The Tab is a lot more sheltered and a bit higher than Columbine...so Plesko, there's something to consider.
