    Here is my FS Bikepacker at it's finest moment Sunday morning. A bit beat and such, but ready for another adventure with some new tires, brake pads, cleaning and love.

    In case anyone missed it, Mark just finished the AZT750 on that bike! :thumbsup:

    Finished Kit ready to roll. Yes, this is a 160mm travel bike but after owning a Pivot 429, Canzo 29, Rip9, El Mariachi, Fargo, La Cruz, Air9 and others this is the bike I have kept.

    Those are nice-looking bags sarge. I have a bit of thread injector experience so I'd like to make use of it to make some bags. My current bike has negligible space for a frame bag, but I'd like to do a seatpost bag and a top tube bag. Do you do anything special for the handlebar bag? Most of the ones I see in pics really just look like stuff bags.

    Thanks! For the handlebar I made a roll top compression bag to hold my air mattress/mummy bag or top quit/underquilt.

    The other bag was made to match the dimensions of the bag I store my hammock/tarp setup in. The straps from this bag go around the handlebars and compression sack. You can't really tell from the photos but there is another loop there keeping the smaller bag from rotating forward. Pictures probably illustrate this better:

    Hope it helps! Goodluck and post photos!

    I'm a big fan of the Freeload rack for panniers. I've used it on my FS as well as rigs which don't have the typical rack mounting points...come to think of it I've used it instead of my trusted Surly Nice rack. Did I mention I'm a big fan of them?

    Great looking rigs here. I have been looking at different styles of bike (hard tail with front suspension and Jones w/fat front) for bike packing and bad weather. This thread has me thinking I should forget about that. Spend the money on some bags for the FS bike and lightweight gear.

    Cheers.

    Both of my bike are setup for packing, different terrain of course.
    They are both 150mm plus FS bikes. No way would I go back to a HT.

    Not the best pic.
    Should have similar setup for the Colorado Trail Race.

    It is not a RIP its a JET but funny thing is that JET frame cracked after less then a year. I am now BPing on a RIP9. Frame bag still works on the RIP as well got them here Cleaveland Mountaineering
    Though I do miss the JET I really liked it. It just couldn't handle the rocky conditions here in Tucson with my fata$$ bouncing around on it. Poor thing tried its hardest though.

    That's cool. I'm really enjoying my RIP. I ended up going the Porcelain Rocket route, and I'm happy with it.
