    Thanks! There's no bathroom or shower or built-in stove. It's a pretty modest build by #vanlife standards; there's a sink with 14 gallons of fresh water, gray water drains out the bottom, gas-fed heater system, and pretty simple electrical system for charging phones, lights, and running the fridge. Most importantly, there are two queen size beds, seat belts for five, and a very stout 4x4 conversion by Quadvan.

    hahaha, I'm honored to have such influence!

    @evenslower I read your post again, and agree - the route, the huts, the scenery - all great. But the best part, the people you are with for that entire time. The few epic rides I’ve done, I’ve loved everything about what I mention. But what makes the ride and trip, the people pedaling up the mountain with you.

    Man I gotta get a trip in before it gets to cold!

    Very cool! I'd really love a pretty modest/simple conversion to start with and mod over the years to suit needs. Looks perfect! Conversions with more than two seat belts seem hard to come by so that's great. Would love more interior pics. Where did you find it and any recs for best resources to find one?

    Kind of goofy looking but they nailed the sweet spot for suspension and geo for an all around trail bike imo.

    My van was built by Axis Vehicle Outfitters; their site is probably the best place to see interior pics. I'm pretty sure they still have some new builds for 2022 available and they are super good people to work with! I looked all over to find a van that would fit a family of four and wasn't completely outrageous in terms of build-out. We rented a storyteller overland van and it worked for us, but they're $160k and included lots of stuff we didn't want like a microwave and shower.

    We got ours used with 57,000 miles for just under $100k. It's still spendy but that was about as cheap as I could find a pre-built van. It has everything we need and if I want to add some more battery capacity or a bigger water tank or whatever then it'd be pretty easy to upgrade later.

    Agreed. It’s got an odd duck look going on to it, but it’s growing on me.

    I’m very seriously considering this one. I really like my current bike, like a lot. But the adjustability of this Fuel is very intriguing. And based on the few reviews I’ve watched, Trek kinda answered the only dislikes I had with the suspension platform. The sole LBS I have without driving a good distance is a Trek store and I have a really good relationship with those guys.

    Who knows, might have a Project One bike on order before too long…

    Quoting myself.

    No Project One Fuel EX for a while. Per my source, Trek has 35k+ bikes in the P1 que to be built. Looks like I’ll be settling for a stock color.
