Pannier setup for long tour?
A quick question here.
Last year I did the Southern Tier with the Lone peak panniers.
2 small front and 2 large rear.
This year I want to slim down so I got a Carradice Camper long flap and 2
small front panniers.I want to use the Camper long flap as my clothing and miscellaneous
bag and put my thermarest on a rack under it.
The front 2 bags to be used for kitchen and the rest.
Will that be too much up front?
Or should I try to keep more heavy stuff in the back?
I want to keep as much weight off the rear tire as possible.
