Tires: 45Nrth 27.5×4” Van Helga is most often ridden, though I run studded Dillingers if the situation calls for it.
Wheels: Cantu Rumble carbon rims laced to Cantu spokes with Sapim CX-ray spokes is my favorite wheelset to ride on this bike, but the Sun Ringle Mulefut wheels do see action if I want to switch tires or ride a specifically rocky or nasty spot.
Bags: Cedaero Frame bag custom made, Oveja Negra Wack Pack bolt-on top tube bag, Cedaero Agler/Drummond saddlebags.
This bike sees fully loaded bikepacking, gravel, Mtb, and whatever else I can throw at it. It changes fluidly as new things come in and out, and as parts where and preferences are established. I elongated the stem just a bit to slow the front end down in techy sections and let me control the bike a bit better.
This is my third Beargrease, and a platform that I continually come back to. The more things change the more they stay the same.
