My MTB is what I'm riding on the GWABR, it (with a set of slicks after XMAS) is set up now for me to train on.
I'm a riding volunteer for the trip, and if I get picked to assist the team on the road, I load up my rack and panniers to get use to carrying extra food and water.
Will be riding the Manjimup/Pemberton area (road and bush tracks) in the week before XMAS, so that will show me if it's as comfortable on the South West Highway.
The BV bike looks like a good bike (the one at the workshop), it will become my ride to work bike.
MTB problem I get on MTB I fall off MTB No problem
