  • Go Means Go! The hardgoods and softgoods of the bike industry. | GO MEANS GO (5)
    provided you are tall enough to load them you can fit a number of bikes up there The least expensive and least safe is the rear door mount They work but if carrying your bikes is a regular thing look at something with some theft deterrents and can carry your bike s more securely If you go with a hitch mount you ll have to figure out if you have a 1 1 2 or 2 receiver Many cars and smaller SUV s use the 1 1 2 size while trucks often go with the 2 Some racks allow for both but the Apex 5 only works with a 2 receiver I went with the hitch receiver because I felt it was a good balance of stability safety and I could easily take it off if I wanted to That and I have a hitch receiver mounted on the front of my truck which allows for the use of the cab over camper while carrying the bikes Here we have 5 bikes of various types loaded up It s pretty crowded When I first loaded up 5 bikes of different types on the rack I realized that the support bars aren t quite long enough to accommodate the bikes with much room between them It didn t help that my Port Townsend had it s portuer rack on it There were flat bars riser bars drop bars swept back bars A wide variety to be sure but either way the limited room on the rack makes for a really tight fit and possibly some bumpin and grindin between the bikes not something that I really want happening especially if my carbon SSCX bike is on board A cool feature of the Apex is the security in it s two locks One locks the expander knob into your receiver hitch so people can t steal the whole works the other locks a light cable across the top tubes They both handily accept the same key The cable lock is quite light but it is of course better than nothing The rack arms fold down nicely and securely and the rack itself folds at the receiver to allow acces into the tailgate or rear door It can be a little heavy if fully loaded but the rack feels solid The rubber straps that are used to secure the bikes have not failed even in freezing weather They are handy in that the three securing points are all covered in silicone so you can get the straps pretty tight and you don t have any vibration So far so good right Sounds like a pretty great way to carry 5 bikes from point A to B It s OK In the past 6 months the rack has essentially lived on my truck and I ve been using it a fair bit more since we got our fatbikes It s been in these more recent months of multiple uses per week that my thoughts

  • Go Means Go! Boreas waterproof backpacks | GO MEANS GO
    EVA foam and tuckable suspension allows for a comfortable carry Both are available in Canyon blue Lava Black Boreas is based in San Francisco though the packs are made overseas and has been around since 2010 They build lightweight clean designs and the founder Tae Kim was raised in Alaska before he left to pursue a career in design eventually working as the design director for The North Face before starting Boreas I m so far impressed with the blend of light weight materials and quality construction that I ve seen in their products I have carried my bike and raft all together strapped haphazardly to the Topaz when a bike raft trip brought me through some nasty rapids I had to portage around All the while I was expecting something to break loose but it held on fine Tags Boreas echo monterey Ryan Living in and loving Alaska A passion for human powered transportation Beer drinker Hell raiser Two wheels one love Comments 2 Amanda March 5 2015 at 5 33 PM I m looking at the Topaz and can t find many reviews Can you tell me how tall you are Reply Ryan March 6 2015 at 12 29 PM I m 6 1 It s probably better suited for folks with a shorter torso Reply Leave a comment Our Sponsors Find Us On Facebook GoMeansGo on Twitter Tall Bryan on Instagram Ryan on Instagram Flickr Group Recent Comments Example 1 The Humpday Hustler Benny Blanco June 18 2015 Hi Bryan appreciate the review I m doing the same mod to the lock I just picked up the body does feel bulky and plasticy Just one question where did you get the sweet Abus stick Thanks Holger Ketterle June 12 2015 Ryan I m right there with you

  • Go Means Go! New stuff from Blackburn | GO MEANS GO
    could work nicely for a pack raft or sleeping bag up front The Outpost Seat Pack 99 99 has an extra large capacity not sure of the volume and comes with a weather resistant stuff sack that get s strapped and buckled into the pack itself You could likely swap out the stuff sack with a real deal dry bag if you wanted It s designed to fit a wide array of bikes fastening onto the seat rails and seat post The Outpost Top Tube Bag 44 99 is a handy little bag to stuff snacks your phone camera cash or anything you may want to get at while riding It sits right behind your steer tube and attaches to your top tube The Outpost HV mini pump 39 99 boasts the largest air volume mini pump on the market I don t know what that means but if you ve ever tried to pump up a 26 x 4 8 tire with a mini pump even to 15lbs psi you re going to get a hand cramp I m curious to try this pump but am on the fence thinking that a CO2 cylinder may be the ticket Or maybe not The Barrier Rear Pannier 109 99 isn t an Outpost product but it does purport to be waterproof which would be handy in touring around these parts Well that s about it for what the folks at Blackburn have to set you up for your next outing I of course like to encourage people to buy local there are a lot of talented bag makers all over the world that can set you up with all your bike packing needs There are people that don t know about these companies and Blackburn will have access to major markets

  • Go Means Go! Can’t Run, Never Will. Part I. | GO MEANS GO
    the bridge because I ve been around out there On the far side most bets were off It s been a couple years since the road has gone through and I was unsure if the sand had blown over the road it was washed out or something else In the summer there is an outfit that takes people over on a massive airboat and then a shuttle van brings them to the glacier so I know it s been traveled but I was still unsure I may have to ride up the sandy river bed for miles looking for a place to cross That and when it comes down to it I don t have a bike that is as well equipped for taking whatever is thrown at it as my Fatback It may be slow but it s steady And I ve got some frame mounted bags for it so Packing the bike This was my first overnight with the Fatback so I was a little unsure how to best pack it The frame bag looks large but doesn t really fit as much stuff in the space as I was hoping Heavy things like food should have gone in there to keep the weight low but I didn t bring much of that and my little gastank bag held my snacks for the road I don t have one of those fancy seatpost bags that would have been so nice but I do have a seatpost mounted rack that worked pretty well I strapped my sleeping bag and pad and lifejacket to it It made for a tall package but was light stuff and it worked I also don t have one of the fancy rolls for the front of my bike but I do have a compression sack from Granite Gear that has three straps to make the roll skinnier and one strap to compress it length wise This gave me enough strapping points that I could lash it to my Jones H bars without messing with the cable routing too much It worked quite nicely actually even strapping securely onto the stern tie downs of my raft That and I had it in my stuff already I ll be looking into a seatbag but the handlebar roll will wait until I can afford it After everything was strapped up and lashed down my bike weighed in at just over 63lbs Not a very nimble beast but hey neither am I Strap a 15lb backpack to my back and my 7lb pistol to my hip and I was ready My beautiful bride of ten days was headed to work so I hopped in with her and she dropped me off 12 miles closer to my destination We kissed goodbye her wondering what the fuck I was thinking taking off by myself across the Copper in a plastic boat and a heavy ass bike but being supportive as she always is The packing list 0º degree Wiggy s
