Mine doesn't have any eyelets for racks, so I'm wondering if I could use those Tubus attachments. Tange Infinity robust enough for about 20 lbs of gear?

Well my GT that I love to abuse is entirely made of tange infinity and it just keeps on taking the abuse.. I'd say it would be fine personally.

I've got a Tange Infinity cross-touring fork on my Ritchey cross bike as well as my Soma Saga. I bought the Ritchey used without a fork, so ordered the Soma fork through my bike shop. I liked it so much that it helped convince me to buy the Saga. The Soma forks have double eyelets at the dropouts and a mid-fork mount for racks/panniers. They definitely can handle 20+ lbs of gear.

That does it then, I'll be touring with 'em. At first, I wasn't so sure because I know some Infinty forks come with eyelets and mine didn't, so I was worried.
