Rigs of the 2019 Silk Road Mountain Race

I came across this today and thought I'd share. I'd recommend carving out some time to drool over these rigs! It makes for quite the wishlist for any bikepacker...

I hope you enjoy!

Can't wait for bikepacking opportunities this summer.  Still riding an old Pugs though... considering an upgrade ... considering new Pugs or Mukluk... Be nice to have tubeless ready wheels instead of the ghetto tubeless I've been rolling.  Still, it has worked - no flats in 2+ years.  I switch between Jumbo Jims for summer bikepacking, and 45nrth Van Helga for snow riding n the winter.  (life is grand!!) 


I can't wait either! I run Jumbo Jims on my Cannondale Fat Caad 2 (Frank the Tank) in the summer as well. I was stoked to finally put them on last week. I used 45NRTH Wrathchilds during winter. We're moving south and out of Alaska this summer though so I sold them to someone who will need the studs more than I will now.

Where are you excited to ride this summer? Any trips planned?

Those are some nice setups.  I plan on using my REI bike in some sort of configuration.  It's pretty versatile. 169263775_1143195922770723_1459988469512118334_n(1).jpg
