I'm still curious about the 300 lbs of stuff... maybe the OP is a competitive swimmer, and is carrying his own pool with him?

Anyway, I agree with the last poster. Get rid of MOST of the crap you plan on bringing, and get yourself a newer bicycle. Some of them are cheap. Hell, I built my own for about $600. Use this bike for tooling around in town, etc.

But yeah, seriously... shoot for a MAX of 40lbs of stuff. Remember, anything you buy along the way you don't have to haul up every hill.
