Personal setups » First Attempt
This is my first attempt at a bikepacking setup. A friend and I are planning an easy overnight for this Sunday, and I’m curious to see how my gear works out so I can make adjustments for longer journeys in the near future. The one change I might make before this weekend is to add a rear rack that attaches to the seatpost, I’ve had a real hard time getting that dry bag cinched down well enough. It’s not heavy just awkward. So from front to rear, I’m carrying: a foam pad with a tarp and stakes rolled up in it, a Spot on top of that, two bottles, frame bag with stove/fuel/tools/camera, dry bag with sleeping bag/camp pillow/lightweight cookset/emergency bivy. I’ll also be carrying a large Wingnut pack with 100 oz. bladder/most of my food/fleece bottoms and top for camp/light down jacket/hat and gloves. Any tips or comments would be greatly appreciated.
