    The red bags shown are some Thermarest Pro Lite Plus Stuff Sacks that I picked up for $7 each, and they fit pretty well, but are very light weight material, and just a touch too "tall". I had an Outdoor Research Durable Dry Sack that I bought for my Western Mountaineering bag, in 5 Liter size, and it turns out that those fit perfect in the cages. They also have a little section of daisy chain on the outside, that you can then run the anything cage strap through, so that the bag wont want to wiggle free on the rough stuff. The other advantage, is that the OR bags are completely waterproof. I ordered an addition for the other side, which will have my bivy, air mattress, and tarp all inside. So essentially my full sleep kit will be fork mounted.

    I had my sleeping bag, wool long johns and top, a pair of socks and a togue in a OR dry back on one fork leg. A sleeping pad in a dry bag on the opposite fork leg. The tent and poles were in the dry bag mounted to the top of the rack.

    No matter how crappy the the weather is during the day I made sure I had a warm and dry place to sleep at night.


    This season I'll use a seatbag also to lighten the load in the back pack.

    Dusza, I did see the recall, the rack mounts directly to the fork crown without the recalled hardware so no worries. Thanks though!

    Thanks! Worked well in the desert. Had 8 16oz. beers on board. Rode way, way better than expected! Rode with 8+psi in the rear and 7+psi in front. Rolled through abandoned, rocky desert routes like an ATV.

    Funny... the rig in the foreground is worth quite a bit more than the rig in the background...

    Here's an update:
    And here's the final load-out...
    Packed and ready for a Saturday morning departure. Bike weight fully loaded as shown is 37.85lbs. This doesn't include water in the frame bag yet. Backpack weight is 10.65lbs(confirmed with hanging scale), which also doesn't include water, with 2L it will be 15lbs even. I'm pretty excited to have such a light load on my back, as my last big trip I was packing probably 30lbs on several occasions. Should make for a comfy ride. I have a ton of room in the Osprey Talon 22 still. The fork bags are a little un-balanced(2.3lbs vs 4.2lbs), but just riding it around the block a bit, it isn't noticeable, and still tracks straight even with no hands on the bars... Although obviously the bag with food(Fork Bag R) will lighten as the trip gets underway. So truly, it should be balanced by the end of day 1.
    Here's pictures, as well as links to my gear layout, sorted by location:




    Frame Bag: TCT Frame Bag
    Seat Bag: TCT Seat Pack
    Fork Bag L: TCT Fork Bag L
    Fork Bag R: TCT Fork Bag R

    karate monkey with panniers

    Here is my karate monkey mocked up for my June 25 GDMBR departure. I'm planning on swapping out one or both bottle cages for the Topeak 1.5l capacity cages and carrying a 3l camelback bladder in a sleeve on the back. All of my gear including the weight of the panniers and handlebar bag weighs 27 lbs without food and water.........not real happy about that. I have 48 days to complete the ride and just might need every one of them!

    if that 27 lbs get you something that allows you to eat well and sleep well, it's worth every pound. i think you will get a lot more out of the ride than some of the guys who have a 15lb kit and sleepwalk through the whole thing.

    Would you mind sharing your route and/or GPX file so I could look at it. I live in south florida and don't have a lot of off road bike packing routes with out flying, and this may be a good close alternative.

    Here you go, the Fargo which has replaced my On One 456 for bikepacking duties, somewhere along the line I've lost 5lb in overall weight (all up inc food and fuel but no water is 45lb) and I'm now not carrying anything on my back.



    Bit more detail on setup etc is on my blog

    I guess I fit somewhere between bike tourist and "bikepacker". I`ve been doing what ever you call it for about four years now, mostly on pavement, but I manage quite a bit of dirt too. I started out with a BOB Yak behind my front suspension mtb, then pretty much switched to my Schwinn "MTB in Drag" with panniers, and have also done a few non-camping weekends on a SWB recumbent and my old road bike.

    My go-to bike now for camping, touring, commuting, or most anything else is an old (92, I think) Schwinn mtb set up with cyclocross drop bars, full racks and fenders, dyno lighting, and 3 x 8 mtb gearing. Depending on tires, the bike itself weighs in somewhere in the mid to upper 20s. My carrying method is the same for about the past three years- front bag (repurposed thrift store camera bag) on a little front platform, 1000 CI or 2500 CI panniers on the rear rack, and a roll tied on top of the rear rack with clothes line. Nothing ever goes on my back when I ride.

    While my carrying method is always the same these days, what I take along is different every time depending on weather, available services, and terrain. The lightest I`ve taken was 15.75 lbs + water, and the heaviest was probably around 25-30 + water.

    For sleeping, I occasionally use a small Thermarest Prolite (haven`t weighted it, but it`s pretty light) or more often a 72 in Big Agness insulated Aircore matress (love it!). My normal sleeping bag is a 15* rated Big Agness filled with 650 down. I`m not thrilled with the BA "pocket for a bottom" plan, but it works well enough that I don`t plan on buying a new bag any time soon. For full on summer temps, I sometimes go with a low end synthetic bag from the local sporting goods store. It`s lighter and more compact than the BA, but only good down to about 50F, even with long johns.

    Shelter is either nothing, my old Coleman puptent (similar to Eureka Spitfire), or a Quarterdome 2. I just bought a silny tarp, but haven`t tried it out yet- hopefully that`ll cover the trips I use the Coleman for now (saving about 2.5 lbs) and will give me a little saftey room if I carry it when I otherwise wouldn`t carry any shelter. I have to say I`m also tempted by some of the Shires Tarptents, might spring for one of those some day.

    My kitchen is built around a Supercat stove, and I`ve already posted it on the "Kitchen Geekiness" thread, so won`t bore you by reposting it. Before that, I carried a Coleman 442, which is the kind with an integrated fuel tank under the burner. It was pretty good too, and still sees use when I car camp with the Mrs.

    I am amazed how small the VOLUME of your gear and food is. I might get half my stuff into your setup.

    Dave, I read about your missing bike last year. Just watched your video - I didn't realise you'd been denied a crack at the route so many times. BEST of luck for a successful ride this year, it'll be all the sweeter at the end after the wait. Will be watching..

    Obviously, it takes SOME time, but not necessarily a lot. Are you in Vegas? Some of the other LV guys go up on Charleston, into AZ or UT, or whatever. For example:
    TR: 2 days, 100 miles around St George, Utah
    Any rate, if you want to try it, go for it. There`s really no reason not to.

    Your in vegas right? Although not the season now, cottonwood makes a fun first area to try it out. I could even be talked into doing a sub24 out there this fall. Just remember you don't need all the fancy gear, my first overnighter(Potosi 70) we just used what we had in our garages.

    That was a very fun loop, its probably too hot now for that as well. We got lucky and caught a decent cool weather window.
    They're are so many BP opportunities in So. Ut., and Flagstaff AZ that it'll make your bars spin

    I'll probably try out Mt. Charleston after July. Because of school, even during the summer, I have no time-- 5-6 day classes every week till July.

    I'm at Cottonwood almost every other day riding I'm not sure if overnight camping is permitted there but then again I'm all for testing the legal system. The only thing I'm worried about is a bunch of weenies going out on the trail shooting guns along the trails.

    90% Ready

    So here is my ride. I swapped out my Rigid fork for the squishy for this trip. Planning for 2 solid days of riding and possiblity of 2 nights if we are slower then anticipated. Still refining the exact gear/clothes as some will be weather dependant. Will run with 3L bladder in pack and 2 bottles on the bike. Breakfast is Oat meal and coffee, Trial & lunch is cliff bars, gels and Honey Stinger waffles. Dinner are Backpacker meals. Now just need to mount up the GoPro and bike computer and I'm ready. My buddy is packing the stove and first aide...I've got the Flask.

    Stand back! I have a compass and I'm not afraid to use it!...At least as a back up that is.

    On day one I'll have the Dr.Lim (team radio shack) rice cakes..then have the cliff bars and other goodies for day 2. As I do more multiday trips I'll get the best food options worked out.

    Ah, a compass, thanks. That's a good idea.

    I like cliff bars okay. I was originally thinking of PowerBars. But I can't imagine eating, what, 3 per hour all day long?

    ^ me either...I go with peanut butter and honey sandwiches on raisin bread...you can squish three or four into a zip lok bag and they pack down pretty light and small, but pack a decent calorie punch. By the 2nd day they can be pretty mushy, but I don't mind

    Here's a photo of my rig at Boulton Creek Trading Post in Canada June 9th, 2012.
    I set out on the Tour Divide Grand Depart and had a sleeping kit melt down or I guess I should say a "freeze down"

    Friday afternoon a big front came in and started raining, sleeting, and snowing, which I
    was dealing with OK. Then Friday night a few of us decided to be safe and try not
    to push over Elk Pass, which it was snowing hard up there and it was a
    5 mile hike-a-bike so we camped. Well that night the skies opened up
    and I got soaked, my down sleeping bag, down coat and all my clothes
    were ringing wet. At 3:00am I went into an outhouse with all my stuff,
    but I was too far gone, I was shaking so bad. At 5:15 I put my riding
    kit on, which was wet and packed up in the snow and tried to ride, but
    I was just shaking to bad and knew it wasn't the smart thing to do to
    go into a snow storm with everything wet and the next town was 50
    miles away. I wish I could have gotten into the race, but I guess it
    was meant to be.
    That storm front sat there for 4-5 days.

    The bag in the main triangle is a Wildcat Gear Leopard with some customizations - really happy with it and the quality is superb.
    In the front everything is held together by a Revelate Harness - some people complain that it isn't as stable as they'd like to but the small amount of wiggle was never a problem so far. It looks like it can hold the more gear/bulky stuff than any other design I've seen until now.

    Sorry to hear it. Glad you knew when to say "uncle" and didn't wind up worse off.
