MK1

It got weird again.. 

This last part has no purpose, if anything it makes
it harder to pack long/tall objects should there
ever be a need for it..

But wasteland aesthetics won..








Pack art

Small stuff.. To stop straps from moving around on the frame






I secretly hope that they will rust and get some patina..
This pack build is starting to move in another direction..
Next: find some more rusty skinny rebar.

Franken pack..


Skinny rebar sub frame. Prevents stuff from sliding of the carrying frame..



Bolted to the frame..


It feels solid enough with those to bolts but i think that some pop rivets
might be a good idea..


And test packed, the paddle fits perfectly into he slots in the
sub frame, not by design just dumb luck..


Now i just need to try it in the wild..


Pack hacking

Been looking at 100 liter dry bags to use when pack rafting but i thought i'd try to make something of my junk before i buy another pack.. 

Merging a old Haglöfs frame pack with a "better" carrying harness creating the ultimate franken pack.

Wet boat goes on the bottom and smaller dry bags/gear goes on top.





Sub frame parts..


Make it do / huffing glue





Rain gear repair.. Exped adhesive patch and Barge glue..

Everything get fixed..

House warming axe



Micro project.

Sanding/scorching and linseed oil





MRS Ponto



It Feel's so good to be back on the water..

To all of you who made this possible..
Thanks..

Let's..

..play a game marginal gains..and bike fit..
Been on the Gravul for about a month and trying to optimize the cockpit for riding/climbing/sticky trail riding etc so this..

Ebay Kalloy uno stem..Dirt cheap and sub 100g*



Old VS New..
The old looks like a turd made of poo..



* Yes: Shaving weight of the gravel biek is sort of stupid
but if it's acheap light+option..win!win!



Grävling

I have entered the black hole of "upgrading". A dark realm also known as money pitting.. Things that has been swapped out so far is the shitty pedals for some shitty but lighter Dartmoor ones, a cheapo inline race-face seat post instead of the generic boat anchor post wich had a bit of layback..

And then there is the obviuos downgrade of adding 600+g of front rack to a 13kg bike but i'm not going anywhere fast so fuck it, plus the Ti bottle cage bolts from aliexpress will remedy that..

Future up/down grades will be:
WTB resolutes 42/tubeless and some rando bag..



And here is the tiny twin Grävling sort of hiding..


(Grävling is swedish for badger..now you know..)
