I would be remiss in my duties if I failed to mention that the Super 8 Strap I've talked about here and there is now available from Backcountry Research.
What is it anyways?
Direct from the site: "Endurance racing, bikepacking, and epic rides place a premium on storage space. You end up stuffing your hydration packs, frame bags, and jersey pockets to the point that there’s just no room for anything else. When the day starts to warm up, there’s nowhere for you to quickly stow the layers you needed to get through those chilly morning miles. You end up cramming your arm warmers, jacket, vest, or cap in with your food and other essential gear, making it even harder to access what you need without slowing down or taking the risk of losing something important on the trail."
$15. That's it.
"Tested, manufactured, designed, and refined in Bozeman Montana."
Surprised by the success and ubiquity of Backcountry Research products WITHOUT doing any normal advertising? That's because their stuff works, is affordable, is and very popular with many segments of the cycling world. Commuters, racers, bike-packers, casual cyclists, roadies, mountain bikers... all word-of-mouthing these fantastic products.
Speaking of fantastic, yeah. The Gristle Strap for fat bike tubes.
If you're thinking, "$13-15 for a strap and $3.50 for shipping and... I dunno."
Add something else useful to your cart. A Race Strap for your MTB tube, a Tube Tarp to cover your rubber, TIGHT ASS Hypalon Accessory Straps so you can strap big stupid things to your bike, or maybe my personal favorite, the Tülbag.
