I know this is a cycling site but over the years, we’ve covered so many events where car camping is a theme and have spent many a weekend in the wilds of the Southwest with MTBs in tow. I get a lot of questions about our setup, so I’m tackling a big part of it with this article. If you don’t like cars and think they have no place on a cycling website, no worries, you don’t have to read this…
For the past few years – since moving to California – I’ve traded the jet-set life for road trips. I used to fly two or three times a month out of Austin, Texas, all over the world. These days, I like to make longer, meandering road trips out of assignments, or events and spend the summer months almost exclusively living out of our truck, sleeping in the Go Fast Camper Roof Top Tent.
Not wanting to limit our traveling experience, we’ve tried a number of sleeping arrangements in the Cruiser, but the Go Fast Camper has really been the best overall. These rooftop tents are the best on the market and while it comes at a hefty pricetag, I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Read on below for our in-depth look at these unique campers.
It’s the week of hip pack drops! Outer Shell just announced their new Hip Slinger hip packs, with a unique roll-top and hook design, as well as two zippered outer pockets, adjustable waist strap and a plethora of colors. These are made in the Bay Area and are in stock now for $90 at Outer Shell!
For Ornot’s latest drop, they teamed up with SF’s premier bag manufacturer, Mission Workshop to c0-brand their Axis hip packs in Ornot signature colors. These bags are made using a rugged, weatherproof 500d Nylon exterior and nylon coated interior floating liner, designed to protect gear from morning showers to afternoon thunderstorms.
Hip packs are perfect for gravel rides or races and all-day MTB outings to keep your bike light and snappy, free of jingle-jangle. The Axis features include an internal zippered compartment, a key clip, and a rear mini U-lock holder. It also utilizes an ultra-thin laser cut waist belt that ensures the pack is hardly felt while on the move.

The Rigd Ultraswing, a spare tire carrier, and bicycle rack swingout system, just got a little more versatile as a car camping accessory with a camp table mount. Now when you finish a ride and return to camp, cooking on a camp stove just became easier. With drop gate real estate a top priority, the Rigd Ultraswing camp table gets the stove off of your drop gate, freeing it up for food prep and snacking.
Rigd offers a Front Runner table (pictured) or a Rago Fab table, offering up two solid options for your next MTB trip or gravel race weekend. Head on over to Rigd to see more.

30 years of making dang fine parts in Chico, California is something worth celebrating! Paul Component is celebrating three decades of millin’ metal with this run of limited edition box sets. Included in the hand-numbered kit are 2 Short-Pull I.S. Klamper Brakes, 1 Pair of Short-Pull Brake Levers, 1 Quick Release Seat Collar, and 1 Bottle Opener.
Each part is finished in a beautiful, alternating Pewter n Purple anodizing, with “30” engraved. Each kit comes packaged in a CNC machined and individually numbered wooden box (1/30-30/30). Only 30 of these were made and when they’re gone, they’re gone.
This kit looks amazing and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for PAUL and crew!

Sometimes you don’t want to carry a whole pack when you go for a ride. Sometimes your favorite mountain bike barely has room for a single water bottle. Sometimes a product comes out that you never knew you needed until you see it. The Nexus is High Above’s most minimal pack, designed around a robust waist belt and a pouch with a Fidlock magnetic closure. There’s even one of those nifty Fidlock bottles incorporated in the design. See more on the Nexus at High Above.

Speedvagen’s first Ready Made bicycle model was the OG1, a true to form classic road bike, made by hand in Portland, Oregon. These stock-sizing models offered the same details Speedvagen is known for in a stock configuration with a faster delivery time. Then came the OG Classic, a vintage-inspired all day road bike. Soon came the Disc OG and the Chris King OG.
For 2020, Speedvagen is tapping into Chris King’s Bourbon for a limited run – only 8 available – of Speedvagen Disc OG fully decked out with Chris King Bourbon. These bikes are available in three paint colors: Mustard, Oxblood, or Sage and in 4 stock sizes. They’re also being fitted with a t47 bottom bracket. A new design implementation they’ll be using from here forward. See more details on these bikes below.
