Colorado Trail Race prep has begun!

Gave my new bags a quick first ride shakedown this morning.  Pretty amazing how much these two bags (saddle bag is Revelate Designs Viscacha, handlebar bag is Revelate Designs Sweet Roll) can hold, and they are remarkably stable once packed and strapped tightly.  I expected to feel the bags swaying all over the place but they were pretty solid - bike handling wasn't affected too much, except that the steering becomes a bit slower and heavier with the large handlebar bag.

But man, the bike gets heavy quick!  Will be interesting to see how my setup takes shape, what compromises in comfort will be made to reduce weight.  86 days left to get dialed in!
