    Shimano or SRAM or other?

    would you recommend buying a full set of the same group components from the same manufacturer? (for example: all Shimano Deore XT components)

    are shimano and sram on a par with each other?

    if the initial cost wasn't a concern, but ease of use, ease of service/repair and reliability and strength were, then what component setup would you choose for a touring bike.

    I am not up to date with all the latest components manufacturers, but since i am spending a significant amount of cash on a touring rig soon I would like to narrow down my choice using the following parameters: (not in any particular order)

    - quality/reliability

    - cost

    - ease of repair/getting parts in the middle of nowhere!

    - functionality. considering that the bike will be fully loaded, i'd prefer the gearing shifter to change gears without much strain to itself
    ... keep on keeping on...
