Re: How to keep your feet dry in the summer

Don’t bother, merino socks are fine for keeping toes mostly warm in wet, summer conditions.

Waterproof socks come out on the second day to stop lost of the saturation from your footwear coming through, quite the fan of DEX Shell socks

Re: What do you think about when you are riding?

i generally ride to stop thinking. thinking is part of my day-to-day problem This! If I can ride and stop thinking about things, that generally means that I’ve had a good ride.

Re: When?????

Jamie, I’d say whenever the campsites are open, we’re good to go. If that’s the 3rd, then that’s the green light.

Of course, i won’t judge anyone who ventures out before then :lol:

In short, I’d say no! Nice to have but not essential How often does your bag get damp or wet?

None on the seat tube either! Is it bent?
Look at the foot of the seat tube and there's an exit hole for a stealth dropper. I don't think any version of the Solaris has had mounts on the seat post.
Good point about the stealth dropper
