Bikepackersfoundry.com is a family collaboration to develop, field-test, and handcraft original ultralight bikepacking gear using high-quality materials; while also providing ultralight DIY designs for the community.
The Store: Three products are currently available; Straddle Bags (a pair of flexible bags that securely mount on either side of the top tube and can be opened and closed with one hand), the Fender Bag (a full-length front fender and bag mounted to the front of the downtube), and the top-tube Bottle Cradle (a secure one-handed quick access bottle storage that can be mounted to the back of the top-tube).
DIY ideas: This section of the website has a variety of do-it-yourself projects focused on ultralight designs, gear hacks, and other ideas for doing more with less. Projects for you to consider include a composite rear rack and integrated pannier system (dropper-post friendly), and an ultralight handlebar harness and roll system.
Blog: Bikepacking and bike-rafting images, usage ideas (such as saving fuel), product suggestions, and ultralight gear lists.
A Bikepack Canada podcast recorded in December 2019 covers the background to Bikepackers Foundry.
This website is intended to only portray items that the authors have not seen covered elsewhere. Bikepacking.com is a fantastic resource for more ideas!
