    Summer is here, so bump for a top thread....

    I got this small frame bag today for only £13 Excellent little bag, that will work well enough this summer, until I get the custom gear made, which will take a little time.





    Enough room for most items & both cages can be accessed This I like

    I will post back later in the week with more fatpacking news

    Keep the pics coming folks

    Motorman, just a little question, is that a B17 Standard or a Narrow?

    I have a front harness that I've used on my road bike for overnight touring. Hoping to get out next year on the Pugs for a winter overnight.
    How do you like the Surly so far?

    love it. bought it at the right price just before the muk 1 was release. would have liked to get the new muk with alternators... but i had one of the best winters ever to ride that pugs.

    currently have a full frame bag for it, along with a jerry can and gas tank. thinking about a winter overnight, but not sure if i have the right gear yet. depends on the weather and if i get to a lean to or not...

    Something n this thread seems wrong to me, I wold seem the bikes are getting fat and the bags are getting skinny! Is it my computer or is this true? I thought it was supposed to be the other way around! LOL

    Maybe a silly question, but why fat bikes for bikepacking and why not just a normal rigid bike that would pedal much more efficiently? Not trolling or anything just curious why fat bikes so often go with bike packing.

    With higher pressure in the fat tires it isn't really much less efficient to pedal than a normal rigid bike.

    The reason you see more fatbikes for bikepacking here, is probably that MTBR is more aimed towards offroad riding. Fatbikes do make sense offroad, both during the winter and summer.

    I personally have (only) two bikes and both are used for bikepacking. When there are significant sections on road planned, I take my Salsa Fargo. Otherwise I ride a Salsa Mukluk. Road only riding does not interest me.

    BG weighed, packed and ready for 1st solo adventure

    Riding solo from Carmacks, Yukon back to my home in Whitehorse, Yukon. I will follow the Yukon Quest trail which has a small window from beginning of February to mid February. 26 dog teams registered this year to date and snowmobile support will pack this section heading on to Fairbanks, AK. I will attempt to ride this in 2-3 days depending on weather and trail conditions. I did the 160k section last year starting from Braeburn to Whitehorse in 2 days, yet it typically gets done in one. My Muk3 was carrying too much gear, upgraded to my new Salsa BearGrease which is tuned into a lighter beast as I get better at packing. I love this bike for its weight, nimbleness, and fun meter factor when out riding

    I will take pictures while out on the trail and hopefully blog after the trip as this section is deemed one of the tougher sections of the 1000+ miles of the YQ. I have a detailed excel spreadsheet someone designed for bike packing I found on the web if anyone is interested in weights and distribution.

    Scott at Porcelain Rocket did an amazing job on my bags. The only thing I wished was a bit bigger on the BG is the frame bag as I am riding a small frame!

    Why do you have your grips on backward?

    Awesome looking bags. I absolutely love the white. Scott does such an amazing job. Best of luck on the trip. I am headed to AK in two weeks for my own winter fatbikes tour.

    Cheers.

    Hey there, that seat bag looks great, nice and stable. I wanted one for my Fargo, what exact make is it?

    Here is my rig on the remote 2 week trip I did down Salsipuedes canyon in Mexico last month. When I started I had 40 litres of water! A Pugsley with Extrawheel trailer and Alpackaraft.

    Would you recommend the Extrawheel?

    Yeah it is a good trailer. I'd still rather go trailer-less but if you need it to haul stuff then I'd say it's the best one I have used. Securing it to the offset Pugsley is a pain in the a$$. They don't make them anymore with these sidebags, instead with pannier mount racks.

    Here is the blog entry for that trip, still need to add more photos:
