Note I did have to buy some new cap screws. I needed two that were longer to go into the factory rack location, then 4 that were shorter. After your remove the plastic covers and get the anything cage in place, you’ll see they need to be adjusted in length. I just went down to my local hardware store, found some metric stainless cap screws and the length I needed. Total cost for the stainless cap screws was a couple of dollars.

Bikepacking Tour 2 Day Katy Trail on Trek FX

We had a kids track meet in St. Charles, so we thought it was a great opportunity to bike back from St. Charles to Jefferson City, MO on the Katy Trail.  They wives dropped us at a Holiday Inn Express and we spent the night, got up Sunday and hit the trail, then did an overnight camping at a local park.  It was a cold overnight, but we had appropriate gear.  We biked 47 miles day 1 and 67 miles day 2 for a total of 114 miles.  Great test of our gear and more saddle time.
