That sucks! "Road of Bones" is on my bucket list thanks to you. Hope you recover your bike.

Thanks! I just made a new thread.

Definitely go East to west or you won't make it past the first few days, and I'd recommend a 'Cross bike with suspension seatpost over my setup. Old (Summer) road has unbridged crossings that are likely not wadeable until mid July. Use Yandex maps and don't ride the Lena hwy. Got lots more advice if you want it!
