    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.

    SaddleUp, how are you mounting you rack at the top tube?

    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
    Backpack: TCT Backpack

    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.
