Whisky Parts Co: New Milhouse Carbon Moto and Winston Mustache Bars

Whisky rolled out two new models of handlebars that surprised us! The Milhouse is a 825mm with carbon, moto-inspired bar with 8º upsweep, 16º backsweep, and the Winston is a 600mm wide carbon mustache bar with 73º backsweep. I’d say those bars fit right in within the Whisky lineup. What other bar shapes would you want to see?

Both of these bars are in stock now, so head to your local shop for ordering.

Condensare Pack List: Bailey’s Moné Hardtail 29er Loaded Up for Touring the Northern New Mexico CDT

Tomorrow, we’ll be sharing our Reportage from our tour of the CDT in Northern New Mexico but today I wanted to give Bailey a showcase on his Moné and how he packs for a three-day trip…

The poet Basil Bunting, while poring over an antiquated German-Italian dictionary, found the German verb dichten (to write poetry) translated as condensare (to condense/shorten). This became one of the guiding principles of Modernist poetry;  which would state; “Great literature is simply language charged with meaning to the utmost degree.” In my early 20s, I fancied myself a student of Modernist writing and, unsurprisingly, many of its ideologies found a place in my daily life. This concept in particular is one that has remained important to me and thus, my approach to touring/bike packing. If one can distill their gear down to items that have the utmost meaning or necessity, while doing away with any superfluities, the result is a light and nimble bike, allowing the rider maximum enjoyment of the terrain to be traversed without compromising their safety and comfort along the way.
