Gear Talk / Re: Panniers and Lightweight System Bags

I don't understand your reply. I am not interested in a mountain bike system. I listed which failed to meet my criteria.

Gear Talk / Panniers and Lightweight System Bags
« on: November 04, 2011, 10:08:37 pm »
Tried on another list to get recommendations of combination panniers and lightweight (rackless) system. Had a lot of referrals of lightweight systems, but no combination system as I want.

Problems with setups seen so far,

Not combination system, two panniers plus equivalent of two more panniers in lightweight (rackless) bags, which is what I want.
For mountain biking, rather than primarily road biking.
Include a backpack.
Not for extended fully loaded touring, camp, cook, weeks or months.
Include DIY (home made) items, which I am not interested.

Would would be best to start, panniers on front or back; my panniers will mount either place.
Then, what lightweight bags to add?

(Be interested in any problems with lightweight systems (many seem to make bike very top heavy.)

Tried searching several models; nothing. Can you give some parameters: look for, avoid, vehicle mount? look for, avoid, hand held?

GPS Discussion / GPS Recommendation

Thinking about getting a GPS. Primary use would be seeing where I am, not making wrong turns, and knowing how far I am from destination. Recommendation?

Routes / Re: Atlantic Coast Route - so many questions, where to begin...

I don't understand "self contained", but "no camping". Expect number of campgrounds to be closed after Labor Day. Other than that Sept would be a good time to be touring New England. I experienced temperatures down to the 20's, hail, and snow flurries touring New England in Oct.
