A rigid mountain bike makes for a great bikepacking rig, or singletrack slicer, and rigs like the Big Bro from Brother Cycles are timeless. It has mounts for bags and cargo cages, clearance for 3″ tires on 27.5+ wheels or up to 2.4″ if you’d prefer a 29er. Best of all, it’s on sale now, at 30% off, bringing the price in to £384.30 INC VAT. See more at Brother Cycles.
Back in April, Brother Cycles invited 170 cyclists to a camp in the New Forest for their annual Brother in the Wild 2018 event. Over the next two days, participants would enjoy bikepacking and dirt road riding.

Rigid 29’r frames make excellent bikepacking rigs, especially when they have braze ons for racks and clearance for 2.4″ tires. Brother Cycles recently teased their newest offering: the Big Bro rigid 29’r. Marketed as a bike suitable for the Tour Divide, the Big Bro has potential to be much more.
