Yes. I am getting the steel rear rack and the steel mid-rider(versus a traditional low-rider).

That is the one I am interested in. I do much ( well, much as I can) of my touring offroad and the lowriders tend to hit against rocks and small stumps. I was thinking of maybe trying the mid-racks. When you get your bike if you can posts some pics of it with panniers attached that would be great.
