Gear Question

I am taking a road bike trip this summer...

Posted on

I am taking a road bike trip this summer and looking for a solo tent that may fit the bike on the inside as well. I do not want to leave my bike out in a campsite at night. Will this tent fit a person and a bike?

Sorry Nate. Not a chance. I suppose you're concerned with security. You're going to be hard-pressed to find any solo tent that will fit the bill. The best thing to do would be to find a lightweight small padlock and 1/8" cable to to wrap around a tree or picnic table. Hope that helps.

Phil, i agree that it will not fit in this tent, but there is another option besides a lock. Nate, check out the Mountain Hardwear Ghisallo 1 Superlight tent. it is for exactly those purposes. the tent's pole configuration is such that your bike will fit in the vestibule. it made several appearances on steepandcheap.com but have seen it in six months or so. it is still available out there on the interwebs. i think backcountry discontinued it though. hope i am not too late for your trip. just saw your question tonight!

the ghisallo is available on departmentofgoods.com right now for about $140 where its regular price is $350!

Just add a strip of gray duct tape on the tent and make it look old and leaky. Thats what I do on my canoes. They look for someone elses to take.
