    Rear suspensions allows me to stay seated most off the time. This helps me to keep my power output much more stable, compared to a rigid rear end.

    It isn't exactly cheap. Not many choices though for racks that works on a fully and take regular panniers.

    Changed the setup ones again. Now running Syntace C3 clip ons. Also fitted a rear rack, so I can run panniers.

    Managed to dig up some information on the track in an aftermovie: https://www.act5.be/act3-3-aftermovie-by­-jefte-de-br).

    On the website it says it is a 'pure MTB' race. Judging by the aftermovie it is mostly gravel though. May need to reconsider removing the aero bar setup.

    Changed the aero clip on setup to a more 'conventional' Surly Moloko handlebar. It was on my commuter before I have really grown to love it. Obviously it doesn't have the aero advantage of the clip on bars, but there are two diffirent riding positions plus loads of space for bags, light, etc. I have handlebar tape incoming to wrap the top parts for added comfort.

    The dropper came off a my previous bike. At the time I was really into the weight weenie vibe, hence the short dropper. So far I have yet to connect the cable and haven't missed it at all. Might just switch it for a regular post in the future.

    To be honoust I don't know very much about it, other than the distance and vertical meters: 500 km and 10.000 meters.

    I chose it mainly because it was close to home (I live in The Netherlands). Also, I liked the fact that this is a proper mountainbike race and not the more common gravel'ish track. Other than that I am pretty much in the blind on what to expect. Which is part of the fun I guess.
