Didn't have the strength to pedal up the steep parts. Lower gears are great but won't make up for weak engine.
Ravn handles great on downhill gravel. Very stable. It was hot and motivation was low so I turned around at Harris Bridge.
Out Bellfountain after road cleanup and back Fern. The Saga feel heavy and slow compared to the RAVN and Grando, but I was able to haul a very heavy load back from the garden with ease.
Loaded her up to see how it felt. Then went to the garden and added a lot of weight.
It was amazing how easy it was to put the rack and cages on. Both just went on with no modifications. However this is not the best setup for this bike. I need to get more weight in the front and less in the rear. I also really don't like the anything cages. So I need to get a low rider rak for the front and use panniers, and then maybe get by without the rear panniers. More likely go with all 4.
