I will now set out a few parameters for my goal here so you all will maybe understand a bit better how I am approaching this.
- Low Budget: Everything I am trying to throw together here is mostly stuff I already have. I needed two Salsa Cycles Anything Cages though, so those were the "components" I referenced in my introduction to this. I very well may have to purchase a couple of other small items, but for the most part, I have to keep the budget low. Really low!
- Practice: I am getting to a point where soon I will begin "practices". This will entail the setting up and taking down of my gear in my back yard to familiarize myself with the processes and to refine my gear while I don't have to rely on its performances yet. I already see some things I want to refine just from setting up the gear for this photo!
- Once I refine my gear choices and am familiar with my set up/tear down/packing process, I will need to do some field testing in the form of some "S24O" attempts. (Sub 24 Hour Over nighters)
If these plans gel as I hope, there is a bigger goal in mind. I hope to share it with you at some point, but now isn't the time. If there are any suggestions for my budget bikepacking set up, I am all ears. Please leave a comment.....
