Campeur Rear Rack Overstock, Swift Campout, and RAAM

by Igor

We hope you are enjoying your summer or winter (for our friends living in the Southern hemisphere)!

Long story short, we ordered a bit too much of some products, and are putting them on sale:
No coupon code required. Sale will only be around for a limited time.

Swift Campout is a global call to go bike-camping on June 24th, 2017. For the third year in a row, thousands of adventurous spirits will load camping gear on their bikes for a weekend adventure.

Adrian and I are camping out at Assateague Island where wild ponies roam, Clint is shredding some gnar on his mountain bike, and Scott is doing a C&O Canal ramble. Other adventures are still in the works. What are your plans?

RAAM (Race Across America) is an ultra-marathon cycling race which enters its 36th year. Riders from over 35 countries start in Oceanside, CA and race to our fair city of Annapolis, MD.

Riders take on 3,000 miles and 175,000 feet of climbing in this test of physical and mental endurance. Keep an eye on racers and teams here: http://www.raceacrossamerica.org/live-tracking.html

We'll post photos on our Instagram and Facebook as they arrive to an emotional finish.

Bring lots and lots of bug spray for that Assateague campout!

@Mr. Drew,

Bug spray is standard issue when going to Assateague! Luckily, the bugs haven't been bad on the ocean side the past few times we have gone.

I just got a VO Piolet frame built up and I'm loving the ride and fit on our local paved city trails. Now its time to load up and get out of town. Will the VO Campeur Rear Rack you have on sale in the post work? or is there a rear rack that you like better for pannier bags?

@ Kevin Winslow - Yes the campeur rack will fit the Piolet. You'd use the top eyelet of the two down by the axle. You'd attach the long rack stays to the threaded holes in the wide part of the bridge between the seat stays. You'll have to bend the rack stays a bit to get the curve exactly right, but it'll fit fine. if you have further questions, email us and we can send over photos.
