Bikepacking.com: A Guide To Traveling Tubeless
One of my biggest headaches. Should I go tubeless for the Stelvio 2019 trip or wait until after. I think that in the end it will be up to budget. But this was a really good guide, no reason not to go tubeless other then cash at the moment (i.e. my bike will already have tyres, and buying new ones before they wear out is a bit wasteful)

Unboxing Marmot Micron 40 Long


My new sleeping bag arrived! Read how I ended up buying this one in Finding the best sleeping bag for my requirements.
I'm 190 long and the Marmot Micron 40 Long version fit perfectly. When minimizing the hood, just my nose poked outside. I'll let the photos talk the rest.

Marmot Micron 40 Long arrived in its storage bag. Bottle of home made cider for scale (33cl bottle)


Marmot Micron 40 Long rolled out, with its storage bag and compression bag on top.
