I've been adding things to my Trek FX 7.3 for the last couple months in anticipation of my KATY trail ride the first week of April. It's all done and I'm packed and ready to go. I've added front(Jandd) and rear(Bontrager) racks, Trek front and rear panniers, handlebar bag and, most recently, Planet Bike Cascadia Fenders.
This is the bike fully loaded for a camping trip with my present camping equipment. I've got a new tent on the way and a new chair. Both of which I'll be able to put inside the rear panniers, so, there won't be anything strapped on the outside like in the picture now.
I don't know how many may be interested in my packing list, but I've always been interested in other's list, so, here goes:
Left Rear Pannier: Tent, 2 golf type shirts, 7 prs. socks, 2 swim suits, wool sweater, tarp. (lots of room left)
Right Rear Pannier: Cooking pot, skillet, mug, plate, spatula, spoon, dish soap, towel, stove, tarp, plastic bags, lighter, camp chair.
Left Front Pannier: Camp soap, towel, tooth brush, tooth paste, sun screen, toilet paper, knife, flashlight, 3 pr. underwear.
Right Front Pannier: Walking shoes, bicycle shorts, long bike pants, rain coat, rain pants, two long sleeve moisture wicking shirts. (again, lots of room left)
Rear Trunk: 2 inner tubes, pump, 2 plastic tire levers, patch kit, allen wrenches, spoke wrench, multi-tool, lock, long strips of industrial velcro, Swiss army knife, narrow duct tape, spare screws for racks, chain lube, moisture wipes, water bottle, first aid kit, hat, gloves, food.
Handlebar Bag: Sunglasses, map, cash, billfold, phone, i-pod, camera, pen, paper.
Front Rack: Sleeping bag, sleeping pad.
That's it, and I can't wait for my first bike tour. I've done a lot of backpacking and owned a kayak outfitting company in Northern MI and Greece, so I've done a lot of this type camping, but never on a bike. I think the KATY will be a good first tour.
