The ONLY thing I don't like about carrying gear in the Giant Loop fashion is on really technical terrain when you have to get WAY back on the seat for a big drop, is the gear bag hits you in the ass. That's about the only advantage I can see for paniers.

My old XRR has a big steel sub-frame. No worries for the yank and crank on that pig.
