    my 29er touring conversion?? opinions??

    So ive owned my raleigh talus 29er now for a little over a year and a half, and i have decided that i would like to basicallyturn this bike into a heavy duty touring bike/ all around commuter, and still be able to ride the trails too. Here is the list of parts that i will be replacing the current components with:
    Surly ogre 29er disc fork
    Topeak explorer 29er disc rear rack
    Planet bike cascadia 29er fenders
    Brooks b17 standard saddle
    Avid bb7 brakes front and rear
    Avid speed dial levers
    Geax evolution tires
    Nashbar front cantilever rack
    Ergon gp4 grips

    Is this overkill in your opinion?? Or does this sound like a good start??
    14 years, 6 bikes, 1 ambulance ride, 12 medals, 4 ribbons, 2 trophies, and some cool scars = BIKING ADDICTION!!!!
