What’s In My Bag, Bikepacking Edition (Part 2 of 2) 2   Recently updated !

What's In My Bag

Welcome back for part 2 of my “What’s In My Bag” video series. If you haven’t seen part 1 where I show you what I pack on a typical long distance bike tour, click here.

This week’s video will show you how I pack for a short distance 1-3 day bike tour using a rackless setup, which consists of bags attached to my bicycle frame. Some people might call this bikepacking. I’ll show you exactly what I carry and how I fill the bags up with 25 lbs of necessities.

Check out the video and let me know in the comments below how you pack your bags. Maybe there’s something I can learn as well since this is fairly new to me.

    Johnny, I just saw this video today while surfing your blog. I was intrigued by this setup, but not sure I would want to wear such a packed backpack, however not a deal breaker. I was wondering if you still use this type of setup?

      Hi Janet,

      This is still a work in progress and I still have the bags for this setup. I plan to use it intermittently. I may use a mixture of this and my Ortliebs. I actually had this setup when we went up to Chino Hills.

      Let’s talk some more in person.
