A Lightning Team Bike-Packing Machine
This bagged out Lightning Team was shared with us by PJ in Pennsylvania! He has been riding this bike on weekend adventures for about 5 years now with his friends and family, and it's holding up strong! Decorated in Ortlieb bags, PJ's Lightning has helped him explore the remote trails and state parks of PA. Really like the way the safety orange touches on the bags compliment the bike's color palette. Keep killing it PJ!

Favorite thing about the bike?
You will notice, all of the swaps from stock parts are touch points and accessories. No drivetrain brake, wheel, or suspension components swapped out. Out of the box, it is a perfectly spec'd MTB and BikePacking bike. Simple in form, flawless in function. Plus it's a Breezer. That's where it all started!
