I've found a pretty good deal on a co-motion nor'wester fram/fork brooks b-17/ti combo, and I'm about to pull the trigger. But after reading some threads I see that some feel that the 43.2 chainstays are way to short for loaded touring. I'll be doing a 6000 mile, unsupported tour, and want to make sure I get this right. If I buy this bike, will I be limited to a trailer? I was sort of banking on panniers.
We plan on camping most of the time, yet plan to travel pretty light (or as light as humanly possible).I have a size 43 shoe if that helps.
