Overnighter or an epic mountain adventure, bikepacking bikes are for when the roads get rough and narrow. They’re designed for a bit of load, be it strapped on for agility through the singletrack, or attached to racks for more load carrying capacity. Fat tyres are a standard feature and low range gearing is the norm. Think mountain bikes, but without the suspension. They’re practical and bombproof, designed to go anywhere and not break down when you’re there.
