It makes sense if you own a bike company that you’d develop your own line of bikepacking or bicycle touring bags. Many brands have done this and the latest is 8Bar Bikes, whose new bags are all in stock at their webshop now, including their new Anything Cages, which are designed to carry a JetBoil, a drybag, or a growler of your favorite beer. Head on over to 8Bar to see it all…
8Bar Bikes’ newest model to hit their extensive catalog of gravel and adventure bikes is the Tflsberg steel adventure bike. It can be built up as a flat bar or drop bar bike, takes up to a 29×2.2 or 27.5×2.8 tires, features a robust and gusseted chassis, and can fit a 500mm ATC suspension fork for added comfort. If you like touring in the desert, the Tflsberg has plenty of cargo bosses too.
There are too many details to list, so hop over to 8Bar Bikes to check it out in detail.
The 8Bar Mitte V3 is an aluminum frame that can transform from a gravel bike to a road bike and back with the simple adjustment of their Twist dropouts. If your road wheels have a 140mm discs and your gravel bike has 160mm discs, then there’s no need to adjust the brakes either. Best of all, the Mitte V3 retails for only 599,90€ and is available at 8Bar today. See more information at 8Bar Bikes.

Berlin’s 8Bar Bikes recently launched a Kickstarter for their new Mitte road bike. The Mitte is unlike anything offered before by the brand in that with a swap of the fork and adjustment of the slider dropouts, it can convert its head, seat angles and bb drop to essentially turn and tune itself from a road bike to an all-road bike. It’s an interesting approach to design, especially if you truly can only have one bike…
