Re: Adverse Conditions Tarp

Like the look of that "tarp" s8tannorm, think you mentioned you were going to do a review of it?

I'm sticking with the Trailstar, mainly because I'm trying not to buy much more kit!

Re: Anyone use a tent while bikepacking?

I use a Mountain Laurel Designs Trailstar - which is probably blurring the lines between tent and tarp. It's about 550g for the tarp and guys then need a pole inside (current one is an Alpkit carbon walking pole ~220g) and pegs which I haven't weighed. I've got an inner on order for it from Oookwork...

Well done guys, I did some of that route with a fully loaded bike the weekend before and some of it was pretty challenging.

Re: Caldera Cone Where to Buy

Interested in making one of the flissure caldera cones if you could send me a copy of the postscript file please Ian. I've got an Alpkit myti mug and an MSR kettle so making seems better than buying!

Re: Carbon for a bikepacking bike?

Thanks royAB, good to hear just a normal level of care required. I figure helitape and not being too precious about the paint finish is probably in order.

Re: Carbon for a bikepacking bike?

Ta, I've also got a Scandal and I've had an Inbred so I know what I'm getting into :). Take it the one with tight tolerances was the Whippet. I've heard it's a bit tight and don't really fancy the BB30 bottom bracket anyway. Other problem I've heard is the c456 headtube with a Rockshox tapered steer...

Carbon for a bikepacking bike?

Hi, Planning on adding a hardtail to the garage and thinking about a Carbon 456. I've been using my Giant Anthem (full sus) for bikepacking which has been great but I'm thinking of a backup option with less to go wrong! Anyone got any experience with framebags etc on a Carbon frame? I figure the 456...
