I will be doing a light tour later this year. By light, I mean that I would ride two days, with the night spent in a hotel, and I would buy my food close to the hotel.
I own two road bikes - a new, steel frame road bike with ultegra compact, and a single speed steel bike that is my foul weather option.
I will not need to take a lot with me, so my current thinking is that a rear rack (seatpost, or other?) should be sufficient. The ride will be in the summer and I'm flexible with my dates so the plan is to ride when there is little chance for rain. Therefore, my list of items to bring is rather light.
The new bike doesn't have eyelets so I think my only option is a seatpost rack, though I wanted to know if there are other options? Also, I don't have a lot of exposed seatpost to attach a rack (though I will measure it before I start shopping).
