Here is the crisis. I was planning on touring on my Schwinn Moab.
I totally love this bike. Anyway I just got a full set of Ortlieb panniers recommended by a friend. Today I went to the bike shop to swap out the front fork (a Psylo) for a rigid and buy some racks. The guy at the shop said something about the head tube angle being to steep or something and that they strongly recommended against it. So now what the *&$% do I do? I don't want to go buy a Bob since I just bought panniers. I saw some Norco racks for suspension using U-bolts. If someone has used them and says they are okay I would be more comfortable, but I don't want to jury-rig my bike.
If anyone has any ideas please let me know.
