Straight out’s Fairbanks – (in the) with an AK – Becker Sewing & Design is another one man bag operation (like Barking Bear and Porcelain Rocket) that has sprung up in the face of the fat-bike revolution that has spread across the world from the land of moose and permafrost. We have NOT gotten our hands on one of their bags (yet) but the owner, Tupps Becker and I have been trading jabs over the inter-webs. While we haven’t tested the quality of these bags with our own eyes……I guess you can’t get a better reference than Kevin Breitenbach, the current Arrowhead 135 Champion. Kevin is a friend of Tupps and used his bags during his 2011-12 epic (multi-podium) race season.
The bag in the pictures is a Van Halen themed custom frame bag, that Tupps is super proud to share with the entire world. So if you’re tired of waiting for another bag maker to work you into his or her busy shedule, you may want to give Becker Sewing and Design a try.
