Don't have any closeups of my bike loaded for a tour but here's one of it carrying a full-size Park repair stand I found on craigslist last summer. Bike is a 1981 Schwinn Voyageur 11.8 with a few modern bits.

yeah they look weird, but they're just regular drop bars, with about 7 cm cut off the ends and turned upside down. I like the positions they give me, relaxed on the straight and bend and really quick to slide down for quick braking... I've never tried TT bars but they look as if they would stretch me too far forward... Anyone else cut their bars like mine?

Complete coincidence: I just picked this frame out of storage to maybe make a touring bike. The only difference is mine has a purple fork.

That is the Surley rack with tubes added on the bottom to help stabilize my load. The bags in the photo are actually my front bags.

I love the multi level aspect of that surly front rack. That's a dealer only type item isn't it?
Are there any clones out there.

Oh yes, I love Jandd stuff. With the addition of my new handlebar bag, I have a full set of bags.
Here is a mock-up pic of my fixie commuter/tourer with a front pannier on the rear.

I do have a lowrider front rack, just no reason to leave it on.
And I'm not sure I'm going to keep the high rise stem.

Besides the Jandd that Maha mentioned, OMM has a few. One thing I like about the Surly version is that it`s the only one of that general class that lets you put one pannier clip behind the fork so the load is more centered on the steering axis.

A bikeforum touring thread bike. Pretty much everything this thread raves on.
60cm Surly LHT
Brooks Saddle
Tubus Racks
Ortlieb Panniers
SKS Fenders
Double Stem to lower handlebar bag, also gives more hand positions.

ha ha, no I am not that cool! It is the surley "nice rack" with a cargo net over it and I added the tubes to keep my bags out of my spokes. I ride past GM every day and had to take this photo. I love this rack! It is wide and mounts mid fork so no binding over bumps and is strong as anything.

Oh wowww... when you guys say loaded, you mean LOADED!

I have no idea how any of you ride for a whole day with all that stuff @_@ I'd fall over and die. Seriously, I don't think I can even ride an hour in some of those. Really nice bikes though ^_^

For my 600 mile trip, I think I'm planning to get by with just a small to medium sized rear panniers. I'm pretty sure I can do it, since I'm not planning on camping and I've fit everything I needed for a week on vacation into a backpack before (including my laptop, which I won't bring on tours xD)

Going on my first tour manana - the Katy trail, basically unsupported. This feels heavy!! Any suggestions? I've pretty evenly distributed the weight, but she's handling like an 83 caddy.

Bolt in a 500ci engine? Go back through your stuff and take some out? Or just live with it- being rail trail, at least there shouldn`t be a lot of climing. If it`s too heavy this time, next time you`ll have a better idea what you can do without. Good luck on your trip- I hope you enjoy yourself and be sure to follow 10 wheels` picture instructions!
