Note: Allan's bike is not the ideal touring machine, but, you use what you've got right? The bike was not fitted with braze-ons for a rack, so the rack was fixed using those plastic coated clip things - to the chain stay. These worked very well, I had no trouble with them at all.  I was worried about the tyres (700x22 for touring!), but again - they were fine.

Wonder if Ribble Cycles would like to sponsor us next year? ;-)
