    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.
    The leaves are already changing in the high country of Colorado.
    How many days are you giving yourself?

    I'm shooting for 8 weeks. I can't really afford to be out of work much longer than that!

    You are brave!

    [QUOTE=donmeredith74;9061585]My gear list changes a fair amount depending on the trip (weather, length, duration, etc.). These photos were from a HOT summer overnight trip here in South Carolina.

    Home Sweet Home - no longer use this

    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

    You guys have some awesome rigs in hear! I just went to the North Carolina Water Center and did some Mountain Biking. I am officially hooked on everything MTBR related.

    Your limits are both physical and mental. Suffering will help you find and overcome both.

    Is that really enough food and water for two days? That is what I use in two hours of riding. . .

    maybe he's a chubby dude with lots of reserves. he's going 20 miles a day, which is slow enough to just burn fat. ???
