Thought I would shoot a pic of what I have been messing with for the last couple days.
Made the frame bag last night, it is shown on my 58cm Univega, but I made it so that it also fits my 59 cm Fuji road bike. The strap is not needed, just seemed a good place to keep an extra strap. Figured that when useing them as my main lashing system a spare is not a bad idea.
Here is what I am carrying.
Not going for the ultralight thing, as I have a three+ pound tent as well as a Hammock.
Took the racks off, weighed them with my Jandd panniers and it was almost seven pounds! That more than makes up for having the tent. Love hammocks for a good nights sleep, but sometimes a full tent is nice in a campground or rest days in the rain. This is what I consider fall/early spring touring gear, so its a little bulkyer than mid summer, but for full winter I would lose the hammock and tarp to make room for heavier clothing. Going to have to use the camel bak for extra water, or else lash my Playpuss on the back.
All I need to do now is spring for a down Quilt or bag, something that packs smaller than the monster I have now. It fills the entire front bag, with just some room left for a hat and some snacks.
