It is a good pick.
If I was riding a small Berg 350
This year I would run Bibs front and Rear JMO

Let me know if you need any help.

I dont know anything about Bibs so just going off what someone else told me but he thought with the amount of paved sections that the rear bib would get hot and start to disentigrate - any thoughts ?

any support crew bringing a radio? i (KK6HVV) plan to bring my HT or mobile.

though i'm working for a rider, many of us would not hesitate to help a fellow support member who's in a bind especially out there.

if we can all agree to use a specific frequency (different from norra /weatherman) that will be great.

found this on Norra's website

3.3 Radio Equipment
All competitors should carry a VHF radio able to transmit and receive on the official NORRA frequency, 151.625MHz. Any
radio equipment is strictly prohibited from interfering with or disrupting event communications on all frequencies allotted to
the amateur radio band, public service band, marine band and aircraft band as permitted by FCC rules.

NORRA uses the 151.625 MHz frequency, commonly known as Weatherman. Outboard linear amplifiers with an output over 25watts are
prohibited. An outboard linear amplifier is a device that boosts the power of the radio and is connected between the radio
and antenna. Included in this rule is SEC8 in its entirety.

Yes thats right . good quality tube though I use michelin uhd. The melt down part on the rear was the reason I went with the tube. I never have ran a rear mouse so I cant say if its true or not but Its worked for me.

Steve - How fast/easily can you change a rear tube? I run mousse front and rear, I put 1400 miles on a rear mousse over Thanksgiving, which is a colder time of year, it was soft, but not destroyed. But I ride like a pussy. Do you have spare wheels? You're doing support with us right? Tim's team will mount the mousse for ya if you don't have spare wheels and are changing rear tires. I dig the mousse. Its one less thing to worry about. But i'm slow changing a tube too.

Any hand held radio carried by a bike rider won't be able to broadcast far enough to really do any good. Even with the radios we use in the cars we are out of range 80% of the time. A hand held is good for what is known as "line of sight", and there are a lot of mountains in Baja. KISS and don't add additional weight.

We have usesd radios for years on the bikes
They have came on handy many times.
We also carry a SAT phone
It's always better to have then to have not!

IF you already have radios, go head on brother, carry all you want, it's your race. If you don't already have radios, use the money you would have spent on a radios and rent Sat phones, which are a good idea.

A hand held radio for a biker is near useless IMO. Save the $.
A Sat phone carried is great. Spend the $.

But, it's like the common question... "what front tire should I buy?" Everyone has an opinion, fine. I also wont wear a Leatt and wont let my kid wear one. But I'd never tell anyone else not to wear one.


** My comment about a hand held radio is for a race situation only. I have 7 handhelds and enough headsets, PTTs, and harnesses to outfit at least 7 riders and on our guided rides at least the lead and sweep always have them and they're awesome. Racing, no thanks.

Radio's are a must in truck only good for bike to truck within a couple miles of each other . Has any one used spot connect with your smart phone for communication with your crew where ther is no cell service , thinking the rider could use the spot and message the crews sat phone or the cell phone if there is coverage ?
