Esoteric i think!
Normal Touring/Sunday ride/ rough stuff set up will be
Hase rear hub, Schmidt dynohub front
Schwalbe 622x37 Marathon tyres
ESGE guards
Flat bars with bar ends
Shimano Deore 3 x 9 speed (11 - 32)
Stronglight chainset 46/36/24
BB7 cable disc brakes
I've run this for a couple of years and am happy (when bits wear out i will change to cable operated double actuating brake pads)

Basically for long, proper lumpy, off road tours wider mudguards and wider tyres
