Great bit of New Forest exploring with Will from Brother cycles and our resident bike rambler Oscar Jenkinson.
We headed out in the pissing rain, perfect for testing Restrap’s bikepacking gear and New ‘Rando Bag’ and the new 2018 Brother Kepler.
Oscar repeatably kept saying… this is fast! the kepler ate up the gravel terrain and short road sections, and lit up the gloomy day with the rad new colourway. The build kit this year is on point, you wouldn’t need to change a thing! We think the RRP this year will be about £1500 complete bike, frames are £499.
I’ve had the Restrap ‘Rando’ bag set up for a few weeks and its been a Revelation! its such a handy shape and size to load and unload your gear, i’ve been grabbing my camera while riding and chucking it back in the bag after with no problems. The large is vast! I honestly think I could do an over nighter with just this bag.
Cant wait for Retraps own rack to be available, as the ‘Rando’ bag will magnet directly onto it, with any other front rack you add a mount using cable ties, which works fine too.
