Here's my gear list for the The Colorado Trail Race.
Bike build: The Reeb Sam's Pants is the ultimate all-rounder. The idea behind this bike was to build a versatile machine for riding my home trails and dirt roads around the Colorado Front Range and for future self-powered adventures. While riding the CTR on a fully rigid bicycle isn't an easy task, the Sam's performed exceptionally well as I had zero mechanical failures (save worn brake pads).

Bike Maintenance: 1x carbon belt drive 2x spare tubes 4oz stans and tire patch kit spokes, bike multitool, leatherman, tire lever, lighter, spare brake pad, pump, zip ties.
