I have booties and winter gloves and summer gloves, cold weather socks, warm weather socks, normal weather socks. Base layers and a jacket and a wind vest. Balaclava. And fancy Italian bike shoes. And if I threw it all on a scale there's no way it would weigh 60 lbs. In fact, if I threw my bike on the scale too I don't think the whole shebang would weigh 60 lbs.
Lol well I didn't weight it. But I had probably.

2 shoes
5 socks
3 arm warmers, leg warmers
5 hats, balaclava
5 gloves
8-10 jerseys, some wool winter.
6-8 jackets
4 vests
4 base layers
8 bibs
3 overshoes

Floor pump, hand pump, co2, pre an post ride vega drinks
Two extra tubulars, glue, Giles remover, extra SRAM chain, lube, degreaser
Wheel bags And... I think maybe I'm forgetting some.

That's why the v berth was so comfy last night. Miss my bike though. Just doesn't spoon well. And it's greasy. I keep it spotless but there's always grease. First one I took it out sort a half hour with shout to my cushion.

Go folding bike!!!
