    I don't have the 9sp shifters yet, or I would just try and see if it would work. I would by some 9sp down-tube shifters for ~$40 and swap them. I can't seem to find 9sp bar-ends for less than $85ish.

    You should definitely take a few day loaded day trips before heading out on tour anyway, so you should have time to figure out if you like the front pannier set-up or not. I'm a fan of the front...

    As long as you're not gonna be in major thorn country or something, I say go for the lowest rolling resistance of the bunch. In my experience, that also comes with nicer, more supple ride quality....
