Hi Ghaz! Could you provide some pics?

what country/city?

what do you mean by "offroad?"

how much stuff do you plan to carry
when commuting and when touring?
By offroad i mean that i always plan my travels with the most offroad as possible. Here in Portugal, sand is found on beaches and snow only during winter and only on the highest mountain usually. Since i don´t plan to ride there, i will find all the other options...rocks, roots, gravel, grass, hardpacked, soft, mud, you name it.

In terms of gear, it will vary depending on the tour. But i plan to tour with both my wife and kid (almost 1 year now, so i ill have to include a seat/chair for him also), and i know already who´s gonna carry most of the weight. So i suspect ill need rear and front rack.

My (if it was only mine) problem is just budget....
