The trick to this minimalism is not to think "how much stuff can I get on this little bike" but "what can I do without."
Also check out the Big Agnes Fly Creek 2. I went to REI and looked at all the packed tents in their storage area and picked out the ones that had the smallest stuff sack. That was one of the smallest. The lighter the tent though, the flimsier the material. Worked great in a two week trip to Utah last summer, but I feel like I need to "Baby it" (Probabably not a bad thing).
