Our 182nd Collective Reward giveaway comes from the bag makers at Oveja Negra in Salida, Colorado, who are setting up one lucky site supporter with a colorful set of fork, top tube, and handlebar bags. Find details on what’s included and sign up for a chance to win before next week’s cutoff here…

The small and eclectic crew of folks behind Oveja Negra have been at it since 2012, and many of us on the BIKEPACKING.com team have enjoyed using and reviewing various bags from them throughout that time. The longstanding Salida, Colorado, brand brings some joy and color to an industry that’s sometimes guilty of taking itself a little too seriously, reminding us to have fun out there. For our latest Collective Reward, we’re happy to be hooking up one member of the Bikepacking Collective with a suite of Oveja Negra bags worth $320.

Oveja Negra Collective Reward

This bag bundle includes a pair of direct-mount Bootlegger Fork Bags that bolt onto a standard three-pack mount and feature a lightweight aluminum alloy frame, strapless design, roll-top closure, reflective logo, and room for a 32 oz. Nalgene or 40 oz. wide Klean Kanteen; a Front End Loader Dry Bag Mount that measures 11 inches wide and enables you to securely carry your favorite 8-20 liter cylindrical dry bag on your handlebars by way of simple offset attachment points and a semi-rigid construction with Nexus cam-locking buckles and abrasion-resistant Cordura fabric; a Lunchbox Handlebar Bag that straps onto the Front End Loader to add a little stability and expand your carrying capacity by three liters via a zippered pocket; and a Snack Pack Top Tube Bag that offers one-handed access to convenient storage and features a super stable design, full padding along the top tube, and plastic inserts to give it structure. Plus, as with all orders from Oveja Negra, this package ships with a handful of deliciously fizzy Zotz candy.

Taken together, these five bags make for an ideal starting point for a light and fast bikepacking setup, perhaps paired with a Gear Jammer Seat Pack and a Bodega Full Frame Bag to take you even further.
