Given the choice, we’d always prefer to ride without a backpack. But no one wants to be 'that guy' who needs to borrow tools, or be left walking home while your friends enjoy the rest of the ride. OneUp Components wanted a solution that would allow us to carry the tools that we need for every ride, without wearing a backpack. Check out the Everyday Carry tool system.
SRAM’s Eagle drivetrains have evolved the 1x movement from the realm of tinkerers to the forefront of component tech. The addition of the GX Eagle group brings 1×12 range and performance in a package that is functional, aesthetically pleasing, and very reasonably priced.

Deep in the serene and isolated mountains of Sun Valley is Idaho’s best gravel cycling event. Ketchum, ID is home to the Wood River, the Copper Basin's towering peaks and rolling grasslands, a regular wild west with purple mountains majesty. It's home to skiing in the winter, and biking in the summer with over 400 miles of singletrack, and every year for the past 4 years it has been the home to Rebecca’s Private Idaho, a 100 mile (or 50 mile) gravel biking/race event that is a test of strength and a show of beauty for cyclists who want to enjoy the ride as much as they push themselves to perform.
