I have a 1995 Trek 2120 ZX that has about 10k miles on it (from my father). I just installed an Axiom Streamliner Road DLX rack on it, and plan on adding panniers. But I wanted to get some professional opinions first. Some of the bike shops near me are quick to say I need to pay for something new, when in fact I can work with what I already have.
So I'm asking you instead; Do you think this frame and it's stock components are fit for touring? The only upgrades I have on it are as follows:
-Continental Ultra Gatorskin tires
-Pedals with toe clips
Any help would be appreciated.
And I apologize if lots of people sign on here asking similar questions.
