    Eric Parsons (Revelate) Bikes Alaska's Gulf Coast

    Did you guys see this yet? Eric Parsons from Revelate Designs, and his buddy Dylan Kentch biked and pack-rafted the Gulf Coast in 2008 on first-gen Pugsleys and Endomorphs. They were several years ahead of this becoming a common trip theme (fatbikes and rafts).



    Apparently he's out on injury, so he uploaded and edited the footage together just this past week, 8 years after the trip. This might be one of the big moments of history for bikepacking and fatbikes!

    People are too busy arguing about e-fatbikes and what pressure to run their 5" tires on rail trails to bother.

    Eric and Dylan's trip was a big inspiration for me, way back when. It was *the* trip that convinced me to buy a packraft, and it remains one of the most bad-ass trips done in our lifetime, or ever.
