Personal setups » ctyler Bikepacking Setup
The bike is a Scott Scale Comp 29er Hardtail, XL. I have a sleeping bag under the handlebars, bivy sack and rain jacket and pants on top. Frame bag has tools, food, and city clothes, under seat is down jacket and neo-air mattress strapped to the back of that. Gallon of water in the backpack with a pair of city shoes. Made these from ‘duck cloth’ and velcro for about $25 total. Not waterproof but trash bags inside work well for that. Is this too much weight up front? Running down the fire-roads and pavement it works fine, but I haven’t used it on single-track yet. Bike weight 30 lbs, gear weight 30 lbs.
