Bedrock Bags makes bicycle portage out of Durango, Colorado including saddle, frame, bar, and hip packs. New to their lineup are these Hermosa UL panniers, an ultralight solution for those who prefer panniers over stuff sacks and the like. How light? Well they weigh under 1.5 pounds for the set. These aren’t necessarily designed for rough and rowdy singletrack bikepacking, but can be a helpful companion on a multi-surface tour.
Russ at Path Less Pedaled reviewed these as well. I’m wondering what your thoughts are if you used them?
Twin Six knows it has a good thing going with their Standard Rando. Available as a frame or as a complete and now in a new color, deep purple. This new option is in stock now at Twin Six, along with their blue, white, and black color options.
The Bougie Boys of Cycling lineup is the brainchild of Bicycle Crumbs, who wanted to inject a bit of fun into the world of cycling t-shirts. Inspired by the GSC Righty-o shirt, the Fat Cat Longsleeve-T substitutes Felix for another cartoon cat. See more at Bougie Boys of Cycling.
While the rest of the industry calls them gravel bikes, Rivendell likes to call their bridge between road and mountain bikes, “country bikes.” That’s the realm where the A. Homer Hilsen resides. They can fit a 44mm tire, although the chaps at Rivendell usually ride a 40mm tire with theirs, and can be used for anything from a sub-24-hour overnighter, to a brevet, or just dirt road riding. They’re $1,500 for a frameset and in stock now. Check out more details at Rivendell.

Revelate has been making bags for bikepacking for a decade. Over at their blog, they’ve posted a timeline of events leading up to today, with photos. To commemorate the anniversary, they’ve launched the MAG-TANK™ 2000, a larger and lighter top tube bag, with a 50% greater capacity, totalling 85 Cubic inches, weighing in at 5.2 ounces. These bags are $65 and in stock now at Revelate. Don’t miss their 10-year post either!
The Helm surprised me. A lot. Cane Creek’s front suspension fork has it all, including a high price up until now. The Helm is now $899 and it’s not often we hear of brands dropping hundreds off of their product’s retail! See more at Cane Creek.
My personal favorite flannel and favorite Kitsbow product of all time is now available for women. The women’s Icon Shirt uses the same Pendleton Wool and construction but in a fit for women. These are made in California and are a true heritage piece. See more at Kitsbow.
RuthWorks is based in SF and the brand offers two product lines, classic and modern, with an ultralight and storm series line in the modern catalog. While the classic bags offer a timeless aesthetic with modern construction techniques for touring and randonneuring bikes, the rack-less functionality of these two ultralight bags look even more appealing. The Brevet bar bag and the Wedge saddle pack will fit on any drop bar or flat bar bike and offer just a bit more room for cramming fall riding apparel into.
If you like these designs, there is a pre-order for the new Storm Series editions featuring Xpac VX25 fabrics as well. Save over $20 per model! See all the full catalog at RuthWorks SF!
