I have a 520 mm cro-mo vintage tsunado road bike. It has 27 inch wheels. I'm putting a pannier rack on the back *preferably steel, but I'll consider Al. It doesn't have the upper mounts but the dropouts have fenders so there are points there. I am going to be using it for touring, commuting, even picking up materials for the construction I'm doing (if anyone knows how to load a 3/4 inch sheet of ply onto bike, I'll be really surprised) I'm sure that I'd like to be able to load at least 25kg on that.
I'd be very interested in any pointers on what to get. I'd like to keep the price in the best bang for buck range, function/quality nothing fancy. If there any thoughts on bags I'm equally interested - Thanks
