is it worth trying to move weight to the front of the bike? Given that distribution is uneven with more on the back, I was thinking it should make sense to try to remove weight from the back of the bike and balance things out a bit.
I used to keep my tool bag hanging off the back seat , mount my pump on the seat post, and carry my clothes etc in a pannier. now I hang the tool bag and pump from the top tube and carry all my stuff in a handlebar bag.
on a given day i probably carry 5-10# of stuff, some days more, so this should have the effect of balancing out the weight distribution a bit.
what I'm not sure of is whether it really makes a big difference at my weight (260s). anyone else do this?
