Pics of the tent body with poles. I'm 6'1" and it feels like I have about 3" above my head and below my feet when laying in the tent.

Most of the seams on the tent fly are pre-sealed. There are a few (zipper seams, vent window seams) that are not. Shouldn't take long to seal those, though.

The tent fly also has small velcro loops for fastening to the poles.

The front vestibule has a ton of space (ratty shoes used for scale :D).

Image


The rear vestibule has enough space for a small amount of equipment.

Interior bathtub floor detail.

The Pack and Pedal tent shows a photo of a bike tucked into that front vestibule. Let's try it! :lol:

Image


Large Salsa El Mariachi 29'er with un-cut handlebars. Nope... ;)

58cm Surly Disc Trucker. Almost...

I bet a medium 26'er with regular handlebars would fit fine.


My initial thoughts (from a solo-bikepacking point of view)...

Pros:
  • My head and feet don't touch when I'm laying down.
  • Lots of room to sit up.
  • Huge vestibule space.
  • Somewhat muted color scheme (personal preference).
  • Can easily exit from either side of the tent.

Cons:
  • No room within the tent body for other gear.
  • I couldn't get the fly taught enough to not flap on a windy day (might be a problem in a heavy storm).
