Jay Graham's San Juan Hut-to-Hut Mtb adventure

"This July eight of us with nine Freeload racks rode the San Juan Hut System - Durango to Moab route. All nine racks made it through with only one minor (operator error) problem. We lost a bolt and nut that hadn't been tightened properly on installation. We were able to do a field repair and complete the trip with no other mishaps. Great racks!"

Here's the story as told by John Boeschen:

The numbers tell a tale about our San Juan Hut-to-Hut mt. bike adventure:

8/9: Eight mt. bikes with nine Freeload racks start and the same bikes and racks finish all in good shape.

8/8: Eight mt. bikers start, the same eight finish. John Boeschen, David Coyle, Arnie Graf, Jay Graham, Michael Lipson, Tom Sellars, Jeff Troutner, and Jay Weill.

7/6: Sevens days and six nights of incredibly diverse terrain.

26,000/215: Twenty-six thousand feet of climbing in 215 miles.

12,500/4026: Thinnest air at 12,500 feet in the high alpine tundra of the San Juan Mountains on the first day, the thickest at 4026 feet in Moab on the last.

46/113.4: Forty-six degrees Fahrenheit in the rain on the first day the lowest temp, 113.4 degrees on the fifth the hottest.

0/0: Zero serious injuries and zero major mechanicals. Those are the numbers and their tale.
