Bikepacking Seminar – February 27, 2014 @ Chris King


With support from 21st Avenue Bikes and Chris King Precision Components, we’re putting on a bikepacking seminar on February 27th, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.  We’ll be talking about bikes, different types of bikepacking setups, camping gear, etc.  We’ll also be talking about routes, navigation, electronics, and DIY gear.   We’ll have plenty of time for Q&A, so bring your questions.

We’ll have plenty of sample rigs on display, including Surly’s ECR, Ogre, Karate Monkey and Pugsley, Salsa’s el Mariachi, Fargo and Warbird, a custom Ti DeSalvo 29er and bikepacking gear from Revelate Designs and Porcelain Rocket to check out.

The seminar is free and so is the beer.  Come on down and bullshit with us about bikes.  If you have any questions, drop us a line:

    I know a video producer who might be able to record it cheap.

    If there’s any way to get a recording for those us us geographically-challenged, I’d love to here the discussion.

      We aren’t able to record it, but we will be posting a significantly expanded version of our presentation outline with links, detailed comments, etc. on the velodirt site soon. It will likely take a week or two to get that put together, but we’ll make it happen.
