I saw that price last weekend, it's a great deal. I have a Safari and put an OMM rack on it. I'm almost 100% sure it's the Sherpa. I used rubber clamps around the forks to attach the rack.
It's tough to find fenders that fit as well. I ended up with Planet Bike fenders and did a couple of easy mods to make it stable on the front. My brother has a Safari and went a different route with fenders that he says fit better. I think these are the ones I have:http://ecom1.planetbike.com/7007.html
Note that the Safari rear rack doesn't use stainless hardware and the construction isn't what I care for. I planned to use it for a few years before swapping it out but after < 2 years I had a bolt rust out a bit and fail. I had a tough time stopping creaks from the rear rack when I was riding as well.
I have a habit of riding my touring bikes off road and even on slightly technical single track, so I've smashed up the foam grip a bit on my Safari, too. I'll replace that with Fitzik shortly, which is more durable.
If you'd like some pics of anything on my bike just let me know. I talked to the guys at Arkel in Canada, they were very helpful with touring equipment for this bike.
I'm curious to see what you think of the Town & Country tires. I didn't like them at first but they've grown on me. I'd estimate I'll get nearly double the mileage on those that I get on the Continental Contact on my 700c bike. And they have actually performed OK on and off road. Not great in sandy trail, but email@example.com
