Wow Louis, thanks for sharing! many people new to bikepacking are cautious about the cost involved. can you please share your take on what the basics are for bikepacking gear? I often find that people tent to over complicate. Remember to invite us the next time :)
This was my first trip out and I had my mother help me make the bags. I am learning to sew on an old industrial machine my wife had stored from when she had a curtain making shop. I have made 2 sets of bags so far. I also got a few sets if Chinese bike packing bags which will be testing on my trips. I have posted a video in gear section on what I carry but will make a follow up on this and will also post once done.
