Someone on GBDuro has just snapped theirs too https://www.instagram.com/p/CDZdXGblyPE
There are different versions...The Aeropack one with the built in bag was tested by Cass Gilbert and he was really impressed by it, enough to use it on several long trips. Seemed popular in the comments section too.
what about a nitto R14 and a drybag or something on top rather than the tailfin, it's a good size but lightweight rack.
i did most of the rhine route with an r14 and a MYOG roll top bag on the top
I found this dry bag on alpkit which has 2 sets of loop holes on each side, so I used a utility strap to go through those and then through a strap on the saddlebag.
So packed in the back I now have managed to get:
Think I should be able to fit everything else in the frame bag and bar bag set up I had before.
wheelies for daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaays
I'll weigh the rear setup but don't think its actually too bad
obvs will have stuff up front too (trousers?, headtorch, cable lock, bike tools, knife, shoes, food)
Have you tried getting your leg over it...
Or riding around corners...
I'll go for a test ride later so I'll let you know
Feels good, wish there was more handspace but otherwise, fully loaded seems fine. Small trip next week.
weird question, what bidon is that? been after a green one for a while
Purist bottles are the best
I'm getting a tailfin to try, we will see.
Also lol at the person lamenting all.advixe being for ravers, then suggesting a packable backpack. Racers been doing that for years!
Pearson cycles, spesh purist
There's a cute little doggy face in the light and shadow on the tree trunk. :)
Looks good! Glad you sorted it. Where you thinking of heading?
my uncle lives sort of off-grid in a wood he owns near Cambridge so there and back to try it out before planning any proper trips
Cambridge! I live in Cambridge! Lmk if you need any advice/help.
Anybody got a hot tip on some packable trainers/shoes? Not necessarily for trips, but I'm riding longer distances for social stuff where I'd like to not be in "proper" SPD shoes all the time, and my Giro Rumbles don't cut it for 12 hours in the saddle. Also looking to avoid deploying any more luggage than my frame bag
Pair of canvas trainers? They’d strap to the outside and in a plastic bag wouldn’t get wet. You wouldn’t want to walk miles in them but they’d be better than cleats. Got mine from Sainsbury’s for around a tenner. Didn’t matter if they got wrecked or fell off at that price.

crocs! somebody had to say it
