    The rack was acquired from a New Zealand company and was called Freeride prior to 2013. Many folks down under use this rack for bikepacking with great success. Whether Thule's version is as tough is a question I have had. I am planning to get one to switch between commuter and bikepacker riding as my OMM won't fit my 29ers...

    Does anyone have a minimalist type mentality when bike packing? I don't carry anything more than my camelback mule with my survival pack (pic), 1 liter of water, hammock, SAM splint and a few other 1st aid items, Multi-tool, and carry a do all custom knife. Sometimes I spoil myself and carry a metal cup to boil stuff in. I can sleep anywhere and live out of that for days depending on environment of course. Being on the USA SE coast it's easy tho.

    If the question is in regards to Rockhopper, the bags were made by a small polish company BikePack. The design is similar to other brands, I suppose, the price probably much lower.

    Costa Rica Tour Rig

    This was my setup for a 450+ mile tour of Costa Rica's Pacific coast.

    I was riding a 2009 Gary Fisher Cobia G2 hardtail 29er. The only stock parts on it a this time were the stem, crankset and fork.

    My friend was riding a Surly Pugsley Necromancer edition.

    Post your Bikepacking Rig (and gear layout!)-iphonr-073.jpgPost your Bikepacking Rig (and gear layout!)-iphonr-148.jpg

    We flew into Liberia Costa Rica with out a map or much of a plan. We knew we wanted to hug the coast of the Nicoya peninsula, which road lead to Pacific Coast and the name of the northern most beach on the peninsula.

    LOL, that's why you dress appropriately (carry at least a light jacket), dig a hole, build a fire and relax. I've spent many cold and snowy nights out in the middle of nowhere, it can suck but you prepare before heading out. You didn't see the emergency blanket in there, setup the right way you could stay nice and warm.

    My plan is to make Crescent City to Eureka on day one, Eureka to Tolken campground on day two, Tolken CG to Fort Bragg on day three, and Fort Bragg home to Lake county on day four. I'm using my Salsa Mukluk with 29er wheels for the trip. self supported camping.

    The first day will be about 100 miles, and hopefully only around 85 each day following.

    My wife and I used these (3in1 camelbak tube filter version) for 3 weeks in Nepal where the water is best described as "weaponised" No issues, no appreciable slow down in the flow of water and come with a kit to filter water from the tap.

    waterstraw, travel tap, micro eco stainless pure water filter bottle, explorer canteen, aquaguard eliminator, water bag

    QR links allow you to add and remove it as needed. Worth every penny / cent.

    Still dialing it in with 2400ci of waxed canvas as she stands now. A gas tank would be nice along with some sort of GPS and/or iPhone mount. Debating putting another set of bags up front, but I don't know if I want the added bulk hanging from the forks.

    So here's mine. A Giant Revolt 1 with Shimano MT55 wheels and a 2.0 Specialized Captain rear and a 2.1 Crossmark front. It has a Revelate seat bag, Cleaveland Mountaineering frame bag and a bunch of dry bags and some straps to hold it all in place. I changed the fork out for a Salsa unit and some Anything cages. All in all I can pretty much get my stuff to last me a few days with minimal weight on my back. I modified a bladder to fit in my frame bag which has helped quite a lot to reduce the shoulder load. The ride is very comfortable although I will change the crankset out for something with a lower ratio to help me with the steep climbs around the areas I like to ride.

    Cool looking bags, ECR. Do those bounce around much with off-pavement riding?

    Haven't been able to put it to the test yet, but I don't foresee any problem. With the Jones Loop bar, I was able to strap handlebar bag not just from the top and back, but from sideways movement as well. The seat bag not only straps from the top and back, but straps to the rack from below. The growlers are double-strapped to Anything cages which are mounted solid to the rack with added brackets preventing rotation. If the tangle bags wants to flop there are rings on both ends so I can always strap that to the down tube if necessary.

    p.s.
    I injured my back over a month ago and still recovering so I won't be doing anything stupid on my bike for quite awhile. I just rode it yesterday for the first time since my injury and only around the parking ramp for a couple minutes. If my back continues to improve as it has the past couple weeks, my goal is to go for a small ride next weekend, but I will be sticking to the paved trails for certain.

    My gear

    Here is my bike pack gear. I prefer to keep the weight off the frame to improve bike handling.
    Total pack weight without food and water 7 lbs solo or 5lbs 9oz with partner sharing.
    Gear:
    Pack - zpacks zero backpack small with webbing belt and side compression straps
    Tent - zpacks prototype tent 27 oz use bikes instead of poles (new hexamid duplex tent 25 oz w/2 poles)
    Bag - zpacks 40 degree bag
    Pad - NeoAir Xlite regular
    Rain gear - zpacks cuben fiber jacket, pants, mitts
    Insulation - Icebreaker long underwear, beanie, gloves
    Socks - Heat holders thermal
    Jacket - Patagonia nano puff pullover (inc. in weight but not in pic)
    Gigapower stove, fuel, titanium cup, spork, backup matches
    Bear bag and line
    Toiletries bag - TP, tbrush, tpaste, sunscreen, bug juice, liquid soap
    First aid bag - neosporin, bandaids, 4x4s, benadryl, dermabond, steristrips, and coban.
    Pump - lezyne HP drive (with flexible hose)
    Repair bag - derailleur hanger, chain link, cleat bolt, zip ties, duct tape, Lezyne carbon multitool.
    Water purification - MSR aquatabs 30 min. 1 bottle on bike.

    You could cut down on weight and forget hot food and leave the rain gear if the weather looks good. My son did ask why we were not bringing a frying pan and bacon.

    The zpacks guys are great to work with and the gear has lots of options.

    The pics are from a loop in the white clouds of Idaho (big and little boulder trails) with my teenage soon. A great time!
