Here is my gear list. It's moving quite often, but I'm getting really close to an ideal list.It's ideal regarding of my way of travelling and living. Could be lighter and heavier. But I feel good like that. Nothing missing, nothing too much. A balance between confort and luxury, simplicity and minimalism.

I just increase or decrease food and water capacity regarding where I bike by adding small dry bags and bigger water bottles strapped wherever I can. That's the main trick actually, having a bike versatile enough to get along with spare space I would need.
Other than that, the main items are pretty stable.That will change at some point, when I'll face other sort of remoteness and climate conditions.This is what I carry for now on.
