Big Ride Supply, LLC

I started Big Ride Supply Company with a simple idea: adventure gear for less.

There are a lot of companies out there putting out products for adventure and dual sport riders. I’ve used many of them: panniers, duffles, tool rolls, large gas tanks, etc. I’ve been riding since I was 19, and I’m not going to tell you how long ago that was. I took a long break to raise a family and got hard into dual sport, adventure and enduro riding in 2003. I’ve done extended unsupported trips off bikes, thousands of day rides, and I know what works and what doesn’t. (Zippers on luggage? Don’t work.)

As gear has improved, prices have risen accordingly. It’s now possible to spend almost as much on a set of soft panniers as you would on hard cases. If you’ve got that kind of money, your choices are bountiful. Enjoy your trip.

But where is the rugged, simple, inexpensive gear that will get you there and back without breaking the bank? I couldn’t find it. So I started this little company. I find gear that works and costs less, test it (great excuse for riding, huh?), and sell it. Pretty simple.

A word about suppliers: Right now, all of mine are Chinese. I’ve looked, and will continue to look, for domestic suppliers, but the fact is that the expertise and economy of scale in this industry is in Asia. Check the tags inside your gear if you doubt it.

BRSC is a one-man operation, and part-time at that. Nonetheless, I stand behind everything I sell and want you to be a satisfied customer. If you don’t like a product, send it back for a refund. I’ll even pay the shipping. (See return/warranty policy for details.)

I’ll add products as time and resources allow, so check back often. Thanks for giving BRSC a look. Now go out and ride somewhere.
