comment Light for Tubus rear rack
@Rider_X: thanks for clarifying that. I added a battery-powered version of the B&M light as well, since US cyclists usually don't have dynamos.

What do you think about the Domane 2.3? It has basically identical components to the Lexa SLX except for the saddle. The frame is not identical, but similar, with IsoSpeed and rear rack mounts. The shape of the frame is pretty different, but still the same "Alpha 200" material. It costs $1869.99, $220 more than the Lexa (not sure why).

The Madone 2.1 is not the same frame at all. Note the seat tube: Lexa has the IsoSpeed decoupler in the frame, and rack mounts, where the Madone 2.1 has neither. The Madone 2.1 on the other hand has internal routing of the shift cables, where Lexa does not. They're quite different frames.

If you want to see what hubs the 2013 Via Nirone has, it's listed here: bianchi.com/global/bikes/…

comment What are some respected MTB frame brands available in Colombia?
The same issue arises in Asia: bikes from "foreign" brands are 30-40% more expensive, and getting large sizes is difficult. Even in Taiwan, where tons of "American" bikes are actually manufactured, prices are higher than in the US.

comment Trailer connection, off the shelf parts and proven performer
From the pictures you've shown, I'm concerned about the PVC tee on the seatpost. If you go over too high a peak or through too low a valley, you may risk hitting the limits of that joint and breaking it (or worse, bending your seatpost). I would think either that or the middle of the pipe where the bolt goes to the end of the canoe would be the weakest points. How many miles do you intend to travel with this rig?

comment With a garmin edge touring can I just ride or do I have to do a route?
If you aren't going to use the "round trip routing" feature where the Touring will create a "circular" route for you, I suggest you look at the Edge 800 instead. It can actually be bought more cheaply these days, and has more features.

comment What should I plan for on a sea-to-summit ride on Mauna Kea, Hawaii?
Three things you should prepare with: newish brake pads for the descent, good lights, and warm clothes for the highest parts. I haven't done this climb, but that's (incomplete) general advice for this type of attempt.

What bike do you have? How heavy is the entire trailer with its load? What's the tongue weight? What's your "unique solution" that you alluded to?
