Camping and Biking
« on: March 31, 2011, 02:14:36 PM »
How do you transport your gear into the woods?  Do you wear a pack and stuff it full while you ride?  Do you have a strap on for your bike?

I think that this is something that I would like to get into -- bringing my stuff to camp and riding my bike.

Thanks

I have wondered that as well, I suppose if you had a hard tail you could get a rack an put gear on that.  What about a full suspension bike?

I have a Bob trailer. It seems like the best way to haul gear out on the trail.

the ibex is the way to go...it's the one with the suspension for the back wheel...cuts down on bouncing considerably...you can't use them with a thru axle, but they do make "bob nuts" which i use on a bike with a shimano nexus rear hub which has no quick release...enjoy...
