The problem with doing LEJOG is that a great many riders tend to think "Oh I'll do it on my race bike as its nice and light" then stick a couple of pannier bags on the back and wonder why the rear wheel has lots of broken spokes after a couple of hundred miles.
The Dawes Galaxy and CB Dalesman are made to carry panniers and subsequently have heavier rear triangles on the frame. (not sure on the Ridgeback) My own Galaxy is now a young 17 years old and has easily as many years again of life left. (probably more than me).
At the risk of compromising the impartiality of this site I have a new (2010 model) 53cm Dalesman in stock which I could sell at £1000 if you are interested.
