So, this is how you can tell you have a bicycle problem when you're on a cross country tour in a library (as I am) and thinking about your next tour. But I'm bored and surfing the net cause I'm done for the day.

I was thinking of buying a new Cinder Cone and putting some racks on it and using it to do some MTB touring this fall and next year. I like it because my LBS has it and I like the lockout fork. anyone have any experience touring on one of these?
