Equipment List

This is an incomplete list of some of the gear that I carried to Minneapolis. It was important to fit all of the stuff onto a bike while also finding a bike that could carry everything. The whole set-up weighed a good 75 pounds with the bike. I assume that is about 25lbs. of bike and 50lbs. of gear, including some food and water in the water bottles. That is a lot of stuff to pull up some of the bigger hills, but I was packing for a two month trip in Europe as well.
