i agree with what's been stated above. adding saddle, new handlebars, and swapping gears are one thing, but if you think you'll be digging into hubsets, shifters, derailleurs, and brakes, the cost can go up pretty quickly and you might soon spending a comparable amount to a used touring bike. hopefully, all those components are in good shape though and you'll have a good tourer on the cheap. if all that's in order, i'd spend my money on a good set of panniers rather than carbon pieces.
