Day two of Frostbike 2015 has been an informational day filled with seminars, tours, and valuable conversations. The day began with a ‘Bikepacking Essentials’ seminar put on by Benton Hunt, A Salsa Brand Sales Manager. We also had a chance to tour through the QWheelhouse and to see the wheel building process. The day finished off with a seminar from Jay Petervary – Real People, Real Adventures. Below is a recap and photo journal from day two at FrostBike. Bikepacking Essentials: The Bikepacking Essentials seminar was an excellent informational introduction to bikepacking for people looking to get started. Benton gave a presentation of three different Bikepacking set ups showing how one can choose to pack for comfort, or for an ultralight and minimalist experience. He also spoke towards retailers to suggest ways of putting bikepacking gear on display in order to illustrate consumers what bikepacking is all about. Qwheelhouse Tour: QBP gave Frostbike attendees an opportunity to tour their wheelhouse to show retailers, media and others how their process for wheel building works. We were introduced to their lacing process, truing process, as well as some of their team. Here they are building typically 600 wheels per day in house. Real Adventures, Real People : Jay Petervary Jay Petervary was introduced by Salsa Cycles Mike Riemer for their Real Adventures, Real People seminar. Jay spoke about his past and what got him into bikepacking and ultra endurance racing, as well as his experiences. He spoke in detail about the two races who have the most significance to him – the Tour Divide and the Iditirod Trail Invitational. Sharing stories and a slideshow of both events, Jay provided a first hand experience to what it means to participate in these events.
