Okay here's what I have

1984 Ciocc - Dura Ace 7-speed, campy brakes, campy crank
Blackburn rack - found in back of our shop, works well. I'm about to change it out for an Axiom rack that has the rear stay the comes back to keep the panniers from swinging free.
Inertia Design Campus Panniers - Good price, high quality! You can stuff them to the gills!
Blackburn lights
errr... Felt waterbottle

I tried to find axiom racks but they look like the are only distributed in Canada, bummer, as they looked excellent and well thought out. I think I will check out the blackburn

NICE BIKE!

but are you sure you wanna put all that weight and stress on a frame that nice??

just sayin for 350 you could get a new surly crosscheck frame and be sure you won't cry when it gets banged up.

I think you're smart to park your bike inside.
