Ryan Wilson’s New 44 Bikes Olive Drab 27.5+ Bikepacking Rig May 24, 2016


When Ryan Wilson @RMDub told me that he was quitting his job to go bikepacking around South America for the unforeseeable future, I was stoked. When he mentioned wanting to do Reportage for the Radavist while he was down there, I couldn’t resist but to get on board. Over the past few weeks, I’ve been helping him put together this 44 Bikes OD green 27.5+ bikepacking rig and Kris just posted completed photos of the frameset. There’s more to come but for now, head to the 44 Bikes Flickr to see more!

  • Get ready for some of the best scenic road/MTN pass pictures ever

      Seriously! @RMDub puts in the work to bring a *little* magic to less adventurous lives, and stir the sleeper within.

    Would love to see a projected itinerary.

    • Start in mid-June in Peru and ride until I don’t want to anymore basically. I’ve got some ideas along the way…

        Having been to Torres del Paine, Puerto Natales, and Punta Arenas down in the southernmost areas of Chile, I really, really hope you don’t tire and bail out before reaching the end. Maybe start at the bottom and work your way up?

          Inspiration for you, taken across Lago Pehoe in Torres del Paine.

        • Patagonia / Torres Del Paine is definite. One of the main reasons for the trip. Just a matter of how much side tracking I want to do along the way.

    Congrats on doing what many of us have no doubt dreamed of doing. Looking forward to the pictures!
