Bikepacking – How to do stuff and MYOG

MYOG – Make your own gear

Over the last couple of years, bikepacking has grown in popularity and more people than ever are getting bitten by the bug. With this passion comes a hunger for knowledge and inevitably, a desire for new gear. I understand.

Throughout my life, I’ve been making things and recycling bits and pieces into useful objects. I enjoy coming up with ways to save a few pennies and especially love a bit of tinkering.

I make mistakes and like to think that I learn from them at least some of the time. When I succeed, I share useful and occasionally useless findings here.
