Welcome to my weekly column. My name is Joshua Tack, and I'll be posting gear reviews and advice here every Saturday. When it comes to the best bikes, components, and accessories, there are no right answers, and you shouldn't expect to find them here. My aim is to provide you with useful information on touring equipment that will help you decide what will work best for you.
