The road less traveled is at some times the hardest thing you’ve done. It is often times the most rewarding as well. Five friends, set out to ride their bikes across deserts, through washes and over mountains. We didn’t accomplish our goal in miles, but we got what we came for. Clear skies, clear heads, adventure and tall tales of a few days in the desert.
We missed you Mathy.
Check out this new bike project from Volagi. Called the Viaje it’s a road bike that is intended for everything. Road, gravel, singletrack, whatevs. Sounds like a great idea. Disc brakes and room for 42mm tires!
Volagi is launching it through Kickstarter and needs to hit a certain amount before they go into production. If I hadn’t just purchased a frame, this would’ve been one to consider greatly.
Pulled this thing out of the attic and fired it up. It’s amazing how a ride up here by bike is an all day event. On the Mighty 990, it’s an hour trip. Fun of a different kind.
It’s about time I got this thing ready. Did a dry run of the bike placement so I can determine where to place the straps. Hopefully I’ll be able to float the Owens River next month. Fingers crossed!
Our second annual bikepacking trip to Catalina Island.

Prototypin' some gear. A handlebar sling for drop bars.
It worked!! Pretty awesome. I was able to bring some water just about to a boil. I just didn’t have enough fuel in the can. Nothing better than making something yourself AND it works!!
Busy time around here, but there's always time for sewing frame bags!
Third time's the charm. Frame Bag #3 for the Salsa Mukluk.
