Personal setups » Trebor’s Kit


This is my setup for bikepacking and for this years’ TD.

Bags are homemade by me. Demensions Polyant, 500d and 1000d Cordura, and water resistant YKK zippers.

* Frame bag is 3 compartment – top drive side holds 4L bladder, bottom drive is storage, non-drive is for flat items like maps and has small pockets for batteries and such.

*Top Tube bags hold tools, tubes, lube, food, sunblock, etc.

*Seat bag holds compressibles like sleeping quilt, clothes, socks, and down jacket.

*Bar bag holds sleep and rain gear.

Thanks Marshal. No backpack for me. Keep it all on the bike.

Hey Rob,
The set up looks awesome. Also great riding with you and Karlos a couple of weeks ago.
Good luck and see you in Canada.

What is the plan for the dynamo? Lighting or charging ancillaries or both?

Ross- the dynamo will run my primary light and charge my GPS battery. My Delorme GPS is a battery HOG!! I burn through a set of Lithium batteries about every day (~14/15 hours – go to regular alkaline and 8 hours is the norm). The cost for a 20+ day trip in gas station battery costs was staggering!! It will also be able to charge a storage battery that can then charge my cell phone and a back up rechargable head lamp while I sleep at night. I’m over “gadget’ed”, I know…. but I hope to not buy one battery the entire trip!
