Bikepacking with Juno
Published: May 2022
Seeing nature from the saddle is not a bad way of spending a week or two of your well earned holiday. Our home country Norway has a lot amazing places to explore, and the sweet-spot for us is when the snow has melted from the mountain passes and the days are long. You might even strike lucky with the weather. But don’t forget your rain and down jackets just in case.
This is the photo story from the 35mm lens of Sveinung Gjessing, when Hans Petter, Rune, Thomas and himself spent nine days around Jotunheimen in the summer of 2021.
Sveinung rode a CAAD12 with maxed out tires, Hans Petter was on a Stribe Juno, Rune on a Surly and Thomas also on a Stribe Juno.
Juno was originally born as a race bike before it evolved into a rig capable of blitzing rough gravel roads just as well as tarmac. The titanium frame excels as the terrain gets rougher, while the geometry gives you a responsive experience without ever getting twitchy. Still lightning fast, the Juno is capable of 40c tires with 50mm mudguards.

The geometry of the Juno is more upright than a traditional road bike, which enables you to spend long days in the saddle exploring different terrain. Still, the handling characteristics invites for an enjoyable ride with a stiff rear triangle that transfers power from the pedals to rear wheel effectively. This makes Juno the ultimate choice when you want a bike that is capable of mastering any road surface.
