I think I need to downsize a bit.

This feels like alot. Probably because I am 1) going it alone and 2) needs SOME clothes for SLO before the tour begins. Guess ill be thinking about mailing stuff home in SC.

What would you charge a fellow gentleman who was looking to purchase a front rack from you?

Its all my backpacking gear... Its typically small items in big fluffy sacks... so once you squish the air out, its much smaller.

Trying to think of things I can do without!!!

50 pounds includes how much food and water?
One bottle, and 10 or 15 Power Beans, Blocks, etc.

Since I am spending ~3-4 days not riding, I packed a few t shirts and a pair of shorts. I may eliminate the Jeans, or leave them in SLO. I need them for when I get back to SLO.

//and a pack of cookies!

So judging by the otherwise empty room--your entire life's posessions weigh only 85 lbs? :)

I'm hoping for your sake you don't have crazy steep slopes/hills to climb with that weight on the bike!!
