    Hi all, I'm currently building my first touring bike. I bought a Trek Grando 520 frame which is nice and lightweight. Now my question, is this gear ratio enough for a touring bike: 1x 36T crank - 11:42 cassette? Or should I consider a 2x set up with 36/26T crankset?

    Also, I'm looking for a not-so-pricey bike rack. Is fork-mounted bike rack safe?

    Thanks!
