- How much does your Camelbak weigh
I just weighed mine 9lb 1oz (bladder only half full), I ditched some stuff, 10mm spanner (haven’t had a bike that needed that for years), chaintool and a selection of allen keys (there was a multitool that does all that) and a shock pump. That brought it down to 7lb 14oz. I’ve still got 3 spare tubes a pump a small bottle of oil spare set of pads and some emergency cash.Posted 7 years ago
I think the biggest saving would be from only taking enough water for the ride you intend to do.andylMember
thinking about ditching mine and going back to a water bottle and saddle bag (awaits mocking). If I had 2 bottle cages I would put my tools/tube in a fake bottle but only one set of bottle mounts.
Only problem is the dog – need to take water for her and some way to carry a ricotta cheese tub for putting full poo bags in.
and ditto the above ^
I don’t bother with oil, make sure my pads have plenty of meat before I head out and normally carry 1 tube and a small puncture kit. I don’t take any spare clothing unless going out for more than 4 hours and it might get chilly and then I take a warm cycling top just in case.Posted 7 years agoDibbsMember
Replace 2 tubes with a patch kit and ditch the oil
I’ve found 3 tubes to be the safe number round here and there’s no way I’m standing round getting cold fixing a puncture, the oil is for the annoying squeaks that start when you’re furthest away from home.Posted 7 years ago
I just put a more sensible amount of water in and now its 6lb 9oz 🙂footflapsMember
Quite a lot, normally about 8kg, but then I like to carry a lot – normally have my HAWG bursting at the seams…

8 hour ride recently and no bag, 2 water bottles, small tool pouch and sapre tube in rear pocket, plus 1 gel for every 30 mins in another pocket. Took some energy drink with me and used one of the many public taps available on the South Downs for a top up. Havn’t used a bag in quite a few years! the freedom of not having that banging around on my back is ace.Posted 7 years ago
