We are wishing all that stuff together and pack it equally in the bags so that they all weigh the same and we can keep balance while riding. Sławek and Piotrek are going to take four bags (two ion the front wheel and two on the back) and the bag. Wojtek says he requires free movements of his handle bars and takes only rear bags and a sack.
