Weight of BIKE not important

When I started bike touring, I carried significantly more luggage than most on a somewhat heavier bike. YET I seemed to make about average mileage each day.

It’s not a race.

AND — if this video is correct — carrying 1 extra kilogram over 100 km results in only about a 2 minute time penalty.

SO — I’ll carry all the weight I want on future trips. I have a lot of capacity volume on my new bike.
