So I went and rode the AWOL Elite today. It's a nice bike, but the bike I have is a better one.

I looked at the Roubaix and just feel like it would be silly to buy a second Roubaix just for touring.

So, I went a different route. I bought the Specialized CG-R seatpost, some Specialized Armadillo Elite 28s, a Bontrager rear rack, a Blackburn rack bag and a pair of Blackburn pannier bags. I going to get all of that setup, check tire pressures, redo the fit of the bike and try to use the Secteur as my touring bike. Total spend was about $450, considerably cheaper than buying a new bike.

Thanks for all of the input.
