I can't remember if they're the Salsa variety or Blackburn, but the bags are held on with Anything cages. The anything cage bags are a little small for my liking, but its nice to be able to just strap on any old drybag and have it work.

Just got back from a fantastic trip to Oaxaca with Adam (who just posted some pics from the trip) and wanted to gush and brag a bit. The bike was fantastic for the terrain that we were on, though I do wish I had a bit more than the 1:1 low gear I was working with. That said, the roads were so damn steep that I don't think it would've mattered all that much. 2.0 Rangers set up tubeless were fantastic once I dialed in the pressure (less of it). The only real issue I had was my aeropress getting caught in my front wheel (from inside the fork bag) and sending me OTB. Both my anything cages broke in the ensuing crash and I had to fashion a backpack out of some straps I'd thankfully bought.

Oaxaca is a spectacular place for on bike and off, you all should definitely put it on your lists.

Anyway, you guys just want to see pictures (some are mine, any of me riding are Adam's):

@donalrey there's lots to tell! I ran into some issues trying to mount a lowrider that I may be able to overcome, but didn't have the time to right before we left, so I'm gonna keep working on those before I reach out to Eric for some more pimples...

@angryscientist I have an EVOC bike bag that I packed it in with most of my gear.

How did you guys get enough water for the hot Oaxaca high desert? Was it easy to find bottled water on the route?

I think we need a post on the trip as well as the GPS tracks.

I need to see this mcgeyvered backpack.

I always bring a foldable backpack with me so I can carry some booze back to camp, this is another good reason to carry it I guess. The anything cages look pretty flimsy and damn aeropress.

we def need more deets of this trip. yall should make a post on the general, sounds like an awesome trip

Access to water was surprisingly easy, actually. Even taking a primarily dirt route, we hit a village with a store to buy bottled water every 10 miles or so. That spacing sounds pretty good, but on the days we were doing big climbing, that also meant a lot of walking. Temperatures also weren't awful, but the sun was incredibly strong.

Here's a pic of the backpack. Took the drybag and 4 Arno straps.
