Hello fellow BF members,
I'm looking for suggestions on the best vintage compromise between an agile road bike and touring rig. In a nutshell:
- lugged steel
- eyelets for a (rear) rack
- moderate geometry (neither racing nor dedicated touring)
- (relatively) lightweight
- clearance for 32/35mm tires
I do 85% road/city biking, but want something that would handle a 10mi commute well and would at least be capable of touring. Whatever I get, I'll probably put on a 50/28 chainring. 70s Raleigh Internationals have peaked my interest, but I'd love to have your suggestions!
Thanks for you help!
