Tuesday 7 February 2012: the weightrix

Unfortunately I accidentally deleted the shot of self plus bike plus bags inc. contents, but it was somewhere around seventeen stone, as should be estimable from the discrete weights of all components. Amusing that the combined weight of bags, camera, locks, lights, spare cells, hat, flask, food, drink and tools is almost equivalent to the weight of the bike (inc. rack and mudguards) itself. I had to use the D80 and 50mm f1.4 in the camera bag as a stand-in for the camera and lens which were taking the photo but they add little to the overall weight as far as these fairly inaccurate scales could discern. Clothes and shoes probably account for a kilogramme or so more.
