This week’s wallpaper image is my Krampus loaded for bikepacking down along the Little Fox River in Western Kenosha County in Wisconsin. The bags from our amigos at Oveja Negra and Revelate Designs. My Krampus allows me to go just about everywhere, from asphalt to dirt and gravel and I agree with Bruce Smithhammer’s view that “the plus-bike platform has fundamentally transformed the capabilities of hardtail mountain bikes for the better”. I plan to put some time in on some new B+ Hardtails through the autumn. I might even find some of that Braaaap, that Zito keeps tell’n me about.
