So went out for a ride today, With all the gear on, why is the bike so heavy, 18 kg with no bottles
First off the wireless Speedo doesn't like satnav.
Before I'd gone few hundred yards the handlebar extender Which holds the front light satnav and speedo dropped onto the handlebar bag.
The top frame bag doesn't quite collide with my bits But at 3 inches wide Rubs my thighs whilst standing.
Rollup handlebar bag contains all the camping stuff, with bag comes out at just 1.5 kg.
All the weight is contained in the triangular frame bike, Tools et cetera.
Tail bag only had waterproof jacket and spare clothes.
To describe the ride today I can do with one word excruciating!
I didn't help but I lost 2 kg in bodyweight, ride was 100 miles along the coast towards Sidmouth.
I ache all over and when I got home I had to lie down on the floor to recover.
I am now questioning my fitness And lack of.
With lack of weight in the front and rear bags, or a plus note the bike handles like a dream.
