I never stop tweaking till my final pack out. Still need to clean up the bags a bit--re-sew some straps etc--but unless some ‘later in the year’ overnight testing or trial racing pushes me to change something major- this is pretty close to what I will have in Banff come June.
Quickly, off the top of my head it includes:
Scott Scale 900 frame, carbon rims with SP front xx1 DT 240 rear (thanks MC –so far I am liking them! http://www.lacemine29.com/index.html) Serfas E-Gel Cruiser Bicycle Saddle, ‘china special’ carbon fork, Relevate Ermine Seat Bag https://www.revelatedesigns.com/index.cfm/store.catalog/Seat-Bags/Ermine , top tube bags from https://bolderbikepacking.wordpress.com/top-tube-bags/ --I removed the zipper from my oversized front bag and just use the rain fly to seal/open it—this is the cats meow for top tube food bag!! If I was a bag maker I would refine this concept—no zipper to gum up/wear out easy on-the-fly access and rain proof, Handlebar bag from Bedrock http://www.bedrockbags.com/shop/tapeats-to-go-bag I am liking this design—might get a second one for the left side
Front bag—mostly empty—for stuffing food, occasional extra water and depending on the weather/time of day on-off stuff that I don’t want to ‘stop’ and repack in my seat bag things like like gloves, rain jacket, leg warmers etc
Sleep Bivy--Blizzard Survival Bag inside stuff sack—I ‘think’ I am going to like this system. Yes its noisy but some 15 deg F testing in my garage indicates it will be warm –real testing to come in March on real rides/races
SP dyno hub, Exposure Revo light, waterproof buffer battery, Etrex 30, Sinewave USB, Ruggedized Kyocera Duraforce Smartphone, Diablo helmet light, have ordered a light/off/USB switch with pre-made wiring harness from klite http://www.klite.com.au/#!product/prd1/1992209975/top-cap-switch , a jersey clip on and frame rear blinkys
In the Ermine seat bag--Rain pants, rain jacket, thermal rest sleep pad, leg warmers, gore tex socks, wool socks, thin baklava, go-lite down jacket, go-lite thin gloves, warm over gloves, SPOT on top and about 2 spare 'twists' of the seal flap of extra room for more stuff as needed.
In small bag on the back of the seat tube-- inner tube, tape, hanger, sew, boot &patch kit, odds & ends
Here and there--First aid/elastic wrap, kinsio tape and various pills. Personal-the usual stuff, wipes lotions etc, chain oil, multi tool, small Leatherman, water filter w/ 1 L collapsible water bottle, bear spray—still deciding if I will use a light ‘running’ style backpack as the spray carrier or maybe a chest strap, or as shown on the bike
I am sure there is stuff I forgot just now.
As shown above, dry, it weighs in at 30.6lbs.
My general goal was to be 'just' sub 30 and I might still get there come Banff.
