Hi there, Im in the process of looking for a touring/comuting/training bike all in one. Primerally i will use it for winter training, and some comuting. But i am interested in doing some touring one day. I kind of feel that i dont need a full on tourer that are really heavy. So was thinking of a cyclocross or audax bike. Are they strong enough to withstand panniers if i did decide to use it as a tourer? If not what kind of bike do i need.
Any advice will be very much appreciated. Thanks
