Dirtbags Bikepacking Four Deep Downtube Bag

When you’re touring or bikepacking, you’ll find yourself over-stuffing your bags to fit it all on your bike. That’s when bags like these Dirtbags Four Deep Downtube Bags come in handy. Fit tent poles, hoagies, Sin Dawgs, or other touring essentials into these nifty bags. From the looks of things, they’re working on a similar bag, being tested on the Tour Divide right now.

Head over to Dirtbags to check out their product line.

Living Off the Land While Bikepacking

This is a pretty rad concept, with a great video to accompany the story! Pro mountain biker Matt Hunter and friends, head to the remote Island of Haida Gwaii to complete a 130-mile bike trip with NO food. They’ll eat only what they can find, hunt and fish.

Bearclaw Bicycle Co’s Thunderhawk All-Road

What the Thunderhawk is proving is not necessarily a new concept; the idea that one frame can be mated with various wheel and tire combinations, depending on its intended use, but what it offers is a big bang for your buck ratio with a well-executed and planned titanium chassis.

The Thunderhawk is made from 3AL-2.5V double-butted titanium, with a 6AL-4V billet head tube, bb, dropouts, derailleur hanger, and chainstay yoke. It utilizes a 142x12mm thru-axle, fits up to a 700x46c (29×1.8) or 650x60c (27.5×2.4) tire, with 3 bottle cage mounts, rack and fender mounts, post mount 160mm brakes, with a hassle-free, full-external cable routing. With the plate yoke design, it will fit a maximum 53t 1x ring or a double with a 36/52t setup.

Call it a quiver killer, or whatever you’d like, the Thunderhawk checks a lot of boxes and comes complete with a Rival One kit for $3750 or a Force One kit for $5500.

Snēk Cycling Lifeboat Tire Lever

By now, I’m sure most of you have at least one bike with tubeless tires. Part of owning a tubeless setup is having the right tools to keep you rolling fret-free. Snēk Cycling’s newest product, the Lifeboat Tire Lever has a few added details to help maintain tubeless tires, as well as the tried and true functionality of a classic tire lever. See more at their Kickstarter.
