    wil, get in and copy / paste the BB code out of Flikcr. Hit the 'share' button. Don't use the image button on MTBR, just paste in that code.

    Sweet rig! I've got a frame on the way and a pile of parts waiting for it. What size are you riding and how does it handle loaded up?

    Thanks

    Thanks. I am real happy with this bike. I have had it setup a few different ways and it seems to shine with all of them. I did the VT50 with it setup full rigid with an Alfine 8spd IGH. I had it setup to play around with last winter all the same but I went 1x9 cassette. It was a blast. Right now it is setup as a single speed which was for a short term special purpose. I will eventually set up a dedicated SS for that madness. I have a full carbon fork on it now that will get replaced with a Fargo V2 fork for the AC mounts. I have these:


    Roll-top Pack built for Salsa Anything Cage - pair by Porcelain Rocket, on Flickr

    It will temporarily see the 1x9 setup again until I get the Alfine 11spd which I will use for Tour Divide 2013.

    Did you get the Bokor?

    p.s. to answer your question about load, I haven't spent any much time or distance on it yet. I will be going out this weekend for a little shakedown. I do know that it is very stable and I love the system.

    Fargo

    Hey all,

    Just finished my bike for my upcoming tour of the GDMBR. I leave in 5 days. This photo was my first (and only) fully loaded test run before heading to Banff. I have a stock spreadsheet that I use for my backpacking trips and started a similar one for this ride. I'll share the link in case anyone is interested in what I'm bringing and where it's packed.

    Alright then...

    Looks sweet man.
    Good luck out there.

    How many days are you giving yourself?

    You are brave. Just moved to SC from Ohio and so far hiking and biking I've almost stepped on an eastern diamondback and a copperhead. I wouldn't,t sleep on the ground!

    "The leaves are already changing in the high country of Colorado." Good luck Chris.. would love to see Colorado this time of year.

    Got out for a lightweight local 24hr trip this weekend since autumn's started to arrive here - ~6lbs of kit plus some food and a light.

    Best wishes - your spreadsheet was extremely helpful, and I'll check back later for the comments. Thanks!

    Here's my setup in action:


    It's all CDW.....what I have in there:

    In the front I have a Phantom 32 down bag, a Mountain Hardware synthetic puffy and a REI minimilist bivy.

    In the rear I have Don Miguel burritos (The Bomb-Green Chile & Breakfast Burrito - Bacon), assorted food snacks which I'm not accessing that day, a MSR water filter, sleep clothes (wool beenie, Capeline2 zip-up by Patagonia, boxers), travel tube of chamois butter, travel tube of diaper rash cream)

    On my back: WingNut pack containing a 6L MSR dromedry bag, snacks for the day, extra change of batteries(rechargable), multi-tool and all that other crap you normally take on a normal ride (tubes, patch kit, yada yada yada).

    I don't carry a sleeping pad...if you ride hard enough....and if you bikepack, you ride hard enough....you don't have trouble sleeping. I can usually find good ground cover to make something soft to sleep on. Only if there is snow on the ground will I go for a sleeping pad.....YMMV

    If mine eyes don't deceive...

    That's the Sunlite EpicTour Frame Bad above, right!?!?!

    It's a great bag! I have it myself! And for only $28.03 online here!! What an incredible value!

    I can fit my tent, poles, stove, pot&pan and other stuff in it!

    Here's my daily ride. I'm retired and bikepack a couple days a week.
    Some of my favorite things to do with my bike pack kit is to have breakfast
    or lunch on the trail. I also enjoy overnight camping.
    The CT is probably my favorite trail to bikepack on since you can camp just about anywhere along it.

    Here's a link to what I carry in those panniers for a overnight biketrip.
    What's in my bikpacking bags

    No, it is actually the Revelate Tangle Bag. Although the one you pointed out looks good too, especially for the price.

    Adam's WaltWorks on the Colorado Trail

    My Waltworks from my Colorado Trail through ride in August. I built all the bags myself and don't use a backpack. There's plenty of room for days worth of peanut m&m's, chips, cookies, skittles, jerky, etc.... room for over 100oz of water if I ever needed that much and there's a full cook kit in there too. Weight matters, volume matters more.

    You might want to ask this question on it's own rather than in the middle of a Rig and gear layout thread. That said I prefer a
    CamelBak with 70 oz bladder

    Bought a new bike, 2013 Carve Expert, and took it out for its first bikepacking trip last weekend, albeit a short one. Also the first trip with a new Hammock(ENO single) and summer sleeping bag(Alpine Design Microlite Terrain). Made for a really small kit!



    I use a hydration pack with a 70oz bladder on my trips, but wouldn't mind a bigger 100oz pack with a bit more storage for 2 nights + trips.

    Nice Gear mate. Would love to spend some serious cash on some decent kit but : 1 . I dont have some serious cash ! 2 . I will only be doing a few camping trips with my bike .

    Just bought a Karrimor Urban 30 Rucksack which will be filled with

    2 Tarps
    1 Rope
    Set of tent pegs
    Basecamp 200 Sleeping bag
    Fire starting kit
    Bike lights
    Spare Clothes
    Couple of bottles of fluid
    Large amount of food

    Thats the beauty of it all... I don't use any high dollar kit, honestly.

    My seatpost rack is a $30 Topeack MTX. My sleeping bag is <2lbs and packs small, can be bought for $22 at Sports Authority. My ENO single hammock and bug fly are the most pricey things of the entire kit at ~$100. My stove is a $10 Bleuet and I use a $2.50 Light My Fire "Foon". I use a 70oz hydration pack and a couple water bottle cages for liquids and everything is packed in Sea to Summit compression drypacks.

    Honestly, its a cheap setup.

    My latest ride packed up for a 90 mile overnighter this coming weekend. Love my Klein!



    Stuff sacks secure at seatpost/frame and seat rails. We'll see how it performs in the field...

    Awesome thread. Makes a person want to get out there now!

    I love these minimalist set ups and what little you are able to get away with. I am almost embarrassed to show my pannier set ups but that's what I have and it works for me. Looks like I have a lot but my panniers are barely half full and my sleeping bag could be the size of a melon if I used a compression sack.

    The first picture is my Fargo on the Canadian portion of the Great Divide and the second, on my Co-Motion Divide in Montana. I no longer have the Fargo and really miss it.

    My first 29er. Still working out the details as far as how to pack everything.
    For summer camping I think this works with a backpack for now
    as it gets colder I'll need to get a little more creative.

    Tested this weekend and ready for my first BP trip next weekend.
    60+miles over two days
    The new harness from Revelate is awesome as is the Viscacha which holds a lot more than I expected.

    What fork is that? I like the looks of it and the fact that it has cage mounts on it.

    Finally have my rig dialed in, took it out on the Coconino 250 last weekend. Here's a pic from the first saddle on the Lime Kiln trail connecting Sedona to Cottonwood, AZ. Osprey Talon 22 pack on my back. Bags on the bike are: Phantom Pack Systems handlebar bag, Revelate Viscacha Seatbag & Gastank, homemade framebag & REI Novara feedbag up front. Plus, a couple of zip-tied, gorilla taped cages on the forks.
