2017 NAHBS: Meriwether Hardtail with Bedrock Bikepacking Bags

Sacramento-based Meriwether Cycles gets its name from owner and builder Whit Johnson’s nickname, after Meriwether Lewis of Lewis and Clark. This became the inspiration for these excursion-seeking rigs. A hardtail can be an ideal trail companion for touring, with the right bags. That’s why for NAHBS, Meriwether teamed up with Bedrock Bags out of Denver and Durango. They make a number of capable bags for whatever kind of trip you desire, including their dropper-compatible Black Dragon saddle pack.

These two brands created one solid option for those looking for a trail-ready, and still shreddy bikepacking rig.

    Whit is as pure a mountain biker if there ever was one.

    Glad to see one of Whit’s rigs getting some lens time. He makes a killer bike and is a great guy as well. Love my fatty from him.

    First time I’ve heard of this brand but the bike is quite simply one of the most stunning bikes I’ve ever seen.

    Nice looking bike as always Whit! I love my Meriwether as well and you could not deal with a nicer guy! Good to see you getting a little face time you deserve it.
