I went to the bike store near by today and talked to the guy there a bit. They said they do not sell a lot of touring bikes now because most people that do it just use road bikes because they don't want to have two bikes for just those things.

I checked it out and I think that I can fit panniers on the back of my bike..which is good. I forgot to ask about the tires.

My fork is not made out of steel. How do I figure out which forks I can replace it with for my bike and which would be the best deal.

I recently checked out a packing list of things that people usually bring on a long tour(including camping equipment), and maybe I am bad at spacial relationships, but it seems like a lot of stuff to pack into just panniers!
