It is a long term goal of mine to do some long tours. When I do that I hope to have built a proper touring bike. But in the mean time I want to get some experience and explore parts of Ontario I haven't been to.
So I have a 2008 Scott Speedster which I use for unloaded touring and triathlons.
Would I be able to just put on a rear wrack and some panniers and head out or is it more complicated than that? What would the maximum weight be do you think (im about 180lbs)?
