Trek 1000 - pannier questions
I've got a 2006 Trek 1000 that I'd like to do some short loaded touring on soon. Short as in less-than-a-week. I don't have enough money to switch up to a 520 or LHT. I do have an Ultegra/Open Pro that I'll be retrofitting with an 8spd cassette, so I'm not too worried about that. I have enough money to afford panniers and a rack. As far as the panniers go, I'd like to get a set of Ortlieb back rollers - my friend has a set and they're pretty much what I'm looking for.
As far as a rack goes, I don't know what to get. The Tubus Cargo seems to be the default, but I don't really know what to look for in a rack. As far as braze-ons are concerned, the bike has a single set of eyelets on the dropouts and what look to be eyelets on the seatstays near the seat cluster. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what would be a good rack setup?
