I apologize for two things:
1) I didn't search extensively before posting, so someone may have gone after this issue before
2)SO far I ask a lot here and contribute much less. If anyone has any aerospace questions, I'll be ALL OVER them
Weefay and I bought our Supremo co-pilot this spring with the intention of riding Portland OR to San Fransisco CA this September. We're planning on going halfway between self supported and credit card touring: i.e. Bringing a tent and sleeping bags etc, but planning on buying food cooked rather than bringing along cooking items/foodstuffs.
With that in mind I'm looking for a rack that I can get to fit on the Supremo with the intended gear weight in the 25 lb range and an absolute max of 40 lbs. (3.5 lb tent, 7 lbs for both sleeping bags and mats) (team weight pre-diet is 290)
I haven't the slightest clue what to look for/where to start with racks and Panniers, besides knowing that Ortlieb makes some pretty awesome (and waterproof) stuff. We're looking to get everything as out of the wind as possible and to keep the weight down. I wouldn't say price is not a variable, but we did just spend $9k on a bike, so I guess it really isn't (we're the go-fast type)
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
