As per customer requests to see more pictures of our gear we have added a FLICKR account!!! So.. now you can check out our gear in high resolution, look for specs of dust, etc. We will be posting more custom work than anything to the account but will also add all of our stock gear as we finish with photography. The account is slim right now, but keep checking back for new gear pics: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ovejanegrabikepacking/

Just wanted to say thanks to all who stopped by our tent to check out our bikepacking gear during the Pro Cycling Challenge. Our small town is graced with many cycling events during the summer, but the Pro Cycling Challenge was a first. Lots of support cars, pro cyclists, motorcycles, more support cars, and a few more motorcycles cruised down Harrison Ave.(Leadville, CO) in route to Beaver Creek, CO last week. The race was exciting, albeit brief, as was trying to fully surround road racing; the strategy of the peloton, yellow jerseys, etc. I've been neglecting my pizza cutters for too long, time to dust off the road bike...

Not sure what to call it quite yet, so we'll call it a handlebar "pouch" for now. The new handlebar pouch gives you some room to store snacks/camera/etc. off of your handlebar mount. We added longer mounting straps so you can store a sleeping pad or bedroll in between the pouch and your dry bag. You can also store additional items from the gear loops on the face of the pack(although they mostly just look cool and add weight to the pack, but only a few grams though, which is well worth the aesthetic value). Check out the following pictures, we will be adding the new bag to our web listed products soon. If you want one sooner give us a ring and we'll send one out asap as they are currently in production and should be ready by the end of the week. Available in Black, Graphite or Multicam/Black(as shown). For longer trips a handlebar bag is an essential piece of bikepacking gear.
