Here is my bike touring gear list. I used this in my bike tour down the west coast in 2007 during my warm up for my PCT thru-hike. I like the BoB Trailer for bike touring as it keeps everything in one place. I don’t have to worry about weight distribution.
I have made a few small changes from my 2007 bike touring set up, but for the most part it’s the same. I’m much more of a hiker than bike touring person but as my racing days become less the appeal of bike touring and bikepacking grows. Next year I plan of doing a lot of bikepacking.
Here is a link to what I’m carrying as far as gear goes.

This list could change but this is the plan as of right now.  I will post my clothing and gear list soon.
