I've got a Roadie that's a couple of years old, and I'd like to use it for ultralight touring. Does anyone have recommendations as far as racks that will fit, maximum weights, etc?
I know it won't handle heavy touring gear, I'm trying to keep it in the neighborhood of 15 lbs. or less.
Just curious to see if anyone has any thoughts.

The Roadie is fine with light loads, even with its racy design. We added rear eyelets for just this reason. Use a rear rack that mounts off the brake bridge, such as the Tubus Fly:
