Personal setups » Gear List – Almost there


I’ve been reading and enjoying everyone’s posts for awhile now and figured it was time to stop lurking and start contributing.  This is my summer gear list for an overnight trip.  Although the gear and bags are the same no matter where the destination, the bikes are not. If I’m heading up to the blue ridge mountains and riding single track then I’ll take my single speed redline monocog flight 29er with 32×16 gearing. If I’m staying around the hampton roads/eastern shore area, then I’ll take my  single speed surly steamroller with 47×17 gearing.

Just some clarification needed:
what are the shorts and the trunks mentioned in the clothes off column? Underpants?
What is the coolmax liner? A sleepingbag liner? What temps is this for?

This list is definitely for summer temps. The shorts are a pair from mountain hardware, basic camp shorts. The trunks are patagonia light and variable board shorts. Most trips lately are near the ocean or a lake. I could get away with bringing only one pair but I like the option of changing into dry shorts after being in the water. Underpants? We don’t need no stinkin underpants. Coolmax liner is a sleeping bag liner. I use that by itself if the temps are going to be in the 70’s or 80’s at night. If it gets chilly towards dawn I just throw my rain jacket over me. Great questions! Thanks for asking!

This is a great list and a solid line up. Thank you so much for sharing.
Any issues with the Jandd Frame Bag?

Sorry it took so long to reply. No problems whatsoever with the Jandd frame bag. It held up extremely well and I have used it on several other trips since with no problems.

I went ahead and got one. It looked so good on your Steamroller, I had to have one for mine. Mine has a black logo, but other than that appears the same. It works like a charm! Thanks for the inspiration.
