    I'm thinking about doing a cycle tour in Argentina/Chile for three months... we'll probably looking to spend as much time on dirt/shingle as we can...

    What is the best front rack, pannier combination with this in mind??

    At the moment I'm based out of Brazil (no good bikeshops) what's a good web retailer to order these bits from...

    Cheers
    Matt :D

    That would be one of my dream tours....

    I'd be looking for panniers that could take the punishment and make it out alive. I don't have suspension, and I've never been in and out of Patagonia -- so this isn't from experience. Just pointers.

    Here's three web shops I've used, they all seem to have the same database. I understand Jandd bags are rugged, but I'm sure there are others.

    AEBike always has low prices, and I'm always happy with their service. Just a satisfied customer. There are several front racks showing "for suspension forks", on all 3 sites.

    Hope this helps

    Old Man Mountain makes nice racks that should work for you.
    They deal direct and through dealers.
