There are so many ways to set up your bike. From weekend warrior setup to world tour covering all 4 seasons Bikepacking setups. You can even add a packraft to get a Bikerafting setup. There is no right or wrong way; there is just a smarter way by getting out there and testing your Bikepacking set-up. Here you can find a lot of different Bikepacking set-ups you can use as a guide.
The number one rule for me is that the frame bag is a great place to start, i.e. your foundation. I always put tools and water and filter in that bag, so that’s where I start on all Bikepacking setups. Then I work around that. The reason is that these are the two heaviest things I carry, and I can’t change their weight. I can change the weight of a tent even down to 680 grams, but never my water. Water is going to be l liter = 1kg so best to keep it in the frame. I use a Bladder that holds 2 liters and the Cnoc that holds 3 more liters for a more stable ride on the rough trails. From there, you build your Bikepacking setup.
So check out all the Bikepacking setups. Each setup took a minimum of 6 months and over 3000 km of testing before finalizing the Bikepacking gear list. If you want to see my personal setup I am working on now called Basecamp click here. Cheers Guy’s.
