My GF and I are planning a trip to the Katy trail in MO next year. The only bike that i have at the moment is a Giant Defy road bike that would be ill suited for gravel use, so my GF has approved a new bike! I have been considering a hybrid or a cross bike, but I have always really wanted a mtn bike.
I have been looking at the Motobecane phantom 29 trail. I really like the price/quality ratio, but I am wondering if it can haul enough for a 5-ish day, 200+ mile, camping trip. I could get away with a rear rack and medium panniers. I know that a few companies make disc mount racks, but I wonder if these would fit on this bike? Does anyone run a rear rack (not seatpost) on a Moto phantom?
