So we've thrown together a video showing those who travel long distances with their bike nine tips on how to ensure your bike gets to it's final destination in good condition. Phew... what a mouthful! In this instance we bundled our bike up in our Royd bike travel bag, however these tips are suitable for any form of bike bag, bike case, or hard travel case.
Check it out over here, and make sure you watch it to the end. Chris artfully managed to stitch in a couple of out takes of me being an idiot! Too good to not share!
We have finally launched our Cellblock M & Cellblock L. I know we have been promising these for a while, and are relieved to finally see them up online and available. These pouches are perfect for packing and organising, and fit more than a Bodyboard Bag in Bali*.
*Cellblocks are not recommended for Corby-esque travel
The Cellblock L is sized to fit 13 inch laptops, iPads, and our Royd Bike Bag, while the Cellblock M is half this size.
Both pouches can be put inside your bag, or strapped to the outside. The Cellblock L can be attached to your bike frame, while the Cellblock M can be worn on your hip.
Hey Melbourne, you are soon going to have another stockist of BOgear. Keep an eye open as it is set to launch late this week or early next. The shop is a combination of Jetnikoff Bike Co (in this new location), coupled with Swift Whip.
A dual shop, it is going to cater to custom bike builds and repairs, as well as apparel and BOgear products among other things.
A gratuitous photo of work in progress....!
I managed to check it out while in Melbourne over the weekend, and must say is going to be doing a booming trade. They are right on the bike path, with tonnes of bike traffic daily. Although small, it is going to be jam packed with kit.
So check it out on Railway Place, Brunswick - which is how you access it... right on the bike path! And if you are the kind of person who wants to send em mail, then the actual address is 32A Union Street, Brunswick. Sounds weird, but makes sense when you see the place!
So we've been regular little hipsters lately, and have signed up to the Instagram bandwagon. On it we have been showing a few "behind the scenes" photos, and what not. So if you are on there, follow us as well! @bogear
This "lesson" is all about our external pleated pockets on our backpacks and our messenger bags. Discover why you should use them, why we added them in, and all the advantages that these pockets have over standard slip pockets.
