Just bought a Giant FCR-3 with the intention of doing some touring on it. When I talk about racks for this bike at the local shops I can see their eyes spinning....
Is there a good shop around that can give me advice on rack? I can just see me with my feet in the rear packs due to the short chainstays....

Not really a touring bike, but you could put one of those seatpost racks on it. You could also put a full rack, but with no eyelets, you'll have to use clamps. Not good for a lot of weight.

You might want to ask this question to the folks on the touring forum down the site. I have a feeling they might have a few ideas for you.
Not local, but there is none better than Wayne at The Touring Store. He'll take the time to sort you out right, and won't over sell.
