Good frame with a nice rack

Any bike nuts willing to help? I saw a bicycle frame for sale on the internet a while ago, green touring frame with rear pannier racks as part of the frame, not as an accessory. I failed to bookmark the site. Anyone have any idea where to find this? Thanks

Bonus points if you can tell me the seat post size for the Peugeot UO8.

Best answer: It's not the Tout Terrain Silkroad or Panamericana (also on that page) is it?

From here (which is pretty definitive), the Peugeot UO-8 has a post diameter of 22mm "with shim". It's easy to check if you have the frame.

(I disrecommend the idea, btw. I've seen too many pannier frames crack).

Response by poster: Thanks indyz, pretty sure that was it.

bonehead, are pannier frames known to be lesser quality or subject to design flaws? How does that compare to carrying a load on an attached pannier rack?

Thanks again guys.
