Like bikepacking routes? Sure you do. Bikepacking Roots, a 501(c)3 non-profit spearheaded by bikepacking legend Kurt Refsnider, creates routes, advocates to land managers regarding access and conservation, and brings bikepackers together across the country. In support of this worthy effort, we're donating a portion of all sales from May 7-13 to Bikepacking Roots! If you'd like to contribute to Bikepacking Roots and score some excellent gear at the same time, simply make a purchase between May 7-13. A few lucky customers will also receive a limited-edition Bikepacking Roots t-shirt or hat! And, of course, you can always contribute directly to Bikepacking Roots here: bikepackingroots.org/donate.html Thanks for the support!
Spring is here - and so is our first batch of seasonal, Limited Edition Gear. Carrying on the tradition we started with our former Fresh Bag Of the Month (FBOM) series, our LTD Gear series will be a new or unique product once every season, and only available during that season! For Spring 2018, we've re-created most of our lineup in beautiful waxed canvas. This brings a whole new aesthetic to our line - and is only available this spring! Check the new bags out here.
Back in November, we launched an FBOM (Fresh Bag Of the Month) called the Stash Pack. It was an instant hit, and we sold out almost immediately. Since then, we've been getting request after request for more Stash Pack availability... and we heard you loud and clear! We've refined the design a bit, and added the Sinbad Stash Pack to the permanent lineup. Check it out!
Also, about the FBOM: We've enjoyed making a fresh piece of limited edition gear every month. However, it's been tough to keep up. Ideas, R&D, and production - all these take time, and the FBOM's time is up. However, we're not killing limited edition gear altogether. Instead, we will be releasing new, limited gear four times a year. Next up: Spring 2018, due in March!
We're happy to introduce some updates and upgrades to our custom frame bag program. Several things are new:
- After spending some quality time devising a process that lives up to our standards, we are launching our new PicturePerfect digital photo template process. No more paper templates - when you order a custom frame bag, if we don't already have the template for your frame in our extensive template database, all you need to do is take a few photos and we'll custom-tailor your frame bag from there. Easier for you - same sleek Bedrock fit.
- We're adding options for our custom frame bags. Most importantly, we've added "Partial Bolt-On" as an option. This means you can opt to have a bag built which utilizes your frame's bottle boss bolts instead of straps in some places (as with the bag pictured above). We've built bolt-on frame bags for years - most notably the one that helped Black Cat Bikes win NAHBS Best Of Show in 2016 - but haven't offered them to the public outside of Durango for technical quality reasons. Having solved those issues to our satisfaction, we're opening it up to everyone!
- We've streamlined the custom frame bag ordering process. All options and prices are now on a single, easy-to-use page. Ordering is simple. A) Order here, and if we contact you for a photo template, B) complete the PicturePerfect process here.
If you've been looking for a custom-made frame bag, you know we produce some of the finest available. With these new updates, the best just got better!
