Here's a shot of my blue Rambouillet set up for touring. The inspriation for this set up comes from Henry Kingman.

The bike has my favourite gearing of 42/26 chain rings combined with an 11-32 cassette. The wheels are White Industries M15 hubs with Velocity Dyad rims to take the abuse of long distance touring. I'm using small Nitto front and rear racks as the total weight of my equipment is 22lbs. On the front I'm carrying a Thermarest Prolite 3 sleeping pad and my cooking gear. The Carradice zipped roll on the handlebars contains personal items, maps, and cell phone/internet tablet and keyboard. My sleeping quilt is strapped under the saddle and the tent is in the Carradice Nelson Longflap saddlebag along with clothes, bike repair equipment (spare tyre, tubes, cables etc), first aid and food.
