Interesting article! Thank you. Three quite different approaches to touring bikes. I have a Kona Sutra that represents the conventional drop bar tourer. The chainset has been changed to a mountain 22/32/42 to get some lower gearing. I also have an Avanti 29er that I fitted with a rear rack and have changed the tyres to a more road oriented style (Serfas Drifters}. Not all 29ers have rack eyelets. I really enjoy riding the 29er even on the road but as it has front suspension I am limited as far as front racks go and have considered using a trailer - either an Extrawheel or a Radical Cyclone IV. The other alternative is to use rear panniers and a Revelate handlebar roll for more capacity and weight balance. I love the hydraulic disc brakes of the 29er as well.
