Surprised and Pleased!
Well, finally I have received ALL the equipment for my "8 Centuries in 8 Days" ride to the Grand Canyon (final item, sleeping bag came yesterday).
I loaded up my Bob trailer and did a weigh in.....I was worried that I would exceed 55 pounds (trailer and cargo) but was really happy when total cargo and trailer (minus water) weighed in at 38 pounds! My bicycle (30 spd alum. with carbon fork) fully equiped, weighed in at 21 pounds....I think that's a pretty efficient overall package considering I'm sleeping on the ground each night!
What do you all think? Am I accurate in my jubilation?
