I am considering buying a Raleigh Sojourn for my 20km round trip commute. I currently ride a 97 Trek that I bought last summer for $80. I added fenders and v-brakes. I was wondering if the sojourn would be overkill or a fun upgrade to my Trek. I have been commuting full time since last summer. I really like it and don't plan on stopping so I thought an upgrade would be fun. I also rode through the winter, I live in Edmonton where it gets fairly cold, would this bike handle the cold ok? Would the geometry help me be faster? Would this be a significant upgrade? Would this be a good commuter? Any other thoughts?
Thanks for any input.
