Personal setups » Lynskey set up for spring 2011by Chilly
I am working on my bikepacking setup up for 2011. I would like to travel the length of the Colorado trail. I will appreciate any advice or criticism on my set up or gear choices. I will publish my gear/food list as it evolves. I am fabricated a few items myself because I could not find them commercially. I first wanted to carry my Fly rod on sections of the trail that will allow it. I fabricated the rod carrier out of rolled Kydex. I cut out sections of the case to allow it to flex and decrease weight. I anchored it to the down tube bottle cage mounts. I then made a triangle bag that can rest above the rod case but still be secure without the case in place. I do not think it is necessary but I like the way is looks and works. I attached several pieces of Velcro to the top of the bag to anchor my tank bag. The Tank bag will carry the majority of my gear. I reworked the attachment ponts several times to minimize shifting and allow clearance for my knees. I built a rear fender/rack from kydex that will shape the seat post side of any stuff sack to allow clearance of my thighs on the pedal stroke. Here are a few pictures of my project so far. Thanks for any input.
