Before replacing the front rack right off the hop you should just slow down a bit and weigh it first. Just saying this because so far you have already replaced two sets of panniers and, if its light it would be better to carry some stuff low rather than on the handlebars and back.

Also, you have three bottle cages now which gives you somewhere like 2+litres of water. Add a bottle stashed in a pannier and that should be plenty.

For the moment why not look at the gear you are packing rather than the way you are packing it. I suspect more weight saving would be found there.
