If you can put together the following items you can go ultralight and have a blast on that great bike. You need 1 tough ballistic nylon stuff sack about 6-8 inches in diameter and 18-20 inches long. Two pieces of 1 inch tubular webbing about six feet long.
In stuff sack: down sleeping bag, bivy sack, big agnes inflatable pad, cycling rain jacket and pants, lightweight nylon or polyester convertable pants, lightweight long sleeve top, swimtrunks and underwear, extra pair of socks.
Put all this gear into a plastic trash bag and stuff into the stuff sack. Then tie the stuff sack about midpoint to the seat supports in a vertical orientation bringing the bag down as far as you can without interfering with the brake and wheel. Then tie it again with the second piece of webbing around the seat post making several wraps and compress the stuff sack as much as you can to give better leg clearance.
Then all you need is a small or medium sized handlebar bag to carry: long sleeve windbreaker, tools, long finger gloves, helmet cover, food, camera, phone, etc.
With this you are set for long distance credit card camping with the ability to camp wherever needed. You will have no more then 10-12 pounds of gear on the bike.
