I am leaving for my tour across country in about a week and a half and I just went out and bought a new hiking pack. The pack is a gregory palisades 80 liter and I was just wondering if anybody else had any good ideas for mounting it to my bike on my tour. I using an inline rear rack with Treak Interchange I Pannier bags and the Trek rear trunk, but I may have to do without the trunk while the pack in on.
Has anybody done this previously and have any advice? Does anyone have any pictures of riders with hiking packs. 82 liter converts to just shy of 5000 ci so it is not a small pack, but not the biggest either.
Any help is greatly apreciated.
