There are two seasons of the year: 1) bikepacking season and 2) bikepacking planning season. A corollary being that it is always time to be thinking about your bike and the trail. So let's see your bikepacking rigs and how you have them set up! 


Pardon my rudimentary 'editing' skills on this photo (sorry @REI-CarterC!) but I'm particularly interested in how you all pack your bike for the most effective weight dispersement, balance, and maximum carrying capacity. I am dreaming of some longer rides but am struggling to know where I would put all the food needed to sustain trips longer than a few nights. I'm not opposed to also carrying a pack on my back, however, I currently have my system dialed to either not needing one or using my sweet fanny pack.

Let's see some bikes!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
