We love making our own bikepacking gear and finding money-saving DIY hacks, and we’re looking for more MYOBG (Make Your Own Bikepacking Gear) tutorials from the community. Curious to know more or have one to share? Browse our existing how-to guides and find a link to submit your own here…

As much as we enjoy testing new and innovative bikepacking and camping gear, we’re equally excited about the endlessly fascinating (and more affordable) world of making your own gear, whether that’s a bikepacking bag, a cycling cap, a surfboard-hauling rig, a hop-can stove, or even just a hand-carved spoon.

We’ve shared a number of MYOBG (Make Your Own Bikepacking Gear) guides on the site over the years, and we’re now putting out this open call for tutorials from you, our readers. If you’ve been making your own bikepacking or camping gear and want to share that knowledge with the community in the form of a how-to guide (and get paid for your efforts), please fill out our contribution form with your proposed DIY tutorial topic and some sample photos. For reference, you can check out a handful of examples linked below, and even if you don’t have a guide to share, we encourage you to explore all of our posts tagged #MYOBG for some inspiration and ideas about what’s possible with even some basic equipment. Stay tuned for more guides in the coming months!
