One of the joys of bikepacking is that you can strap bikepacking bags to just about any bike and head out on an adventure. On the other hand, buying your first bikepacking bicycle can be intimidating. Should you get a bare frame and assemble it with a selection of carefully chosen parts? Will getting a new frame and building it up with your current parts do it? Or do you go for a complete pre-built bike?If you are new to bike touring, or have been off two wheels for a few years, the choices can seem endless.
