A little about myself:
I ride 4-500 miles a week on my CF road bike. Just for fun/fitness. Now I'm looking not only to get from point A to point B, but I'd like to get there with some stuff. I'm not looking to load my front and rear down with a years supply of life, but I will be taking 100 mile trips or so with light luggage (tee's and shorts, socks, shoes... the basics). Price is really no object as each I've listed fit well within my budget. I'm primarily looking for comfort for long rides and carrying capacity in the event I um, carry stuff.
170lbs (going for 165!)
34" inseam (My Madone is 62cm, but I can ride 59-61's very comfortably as well)
I've done some research and I have a few bikes in mind:
Raleigh International 2011
Raleigh Record Ace 2011
Jamis Aurora Elite
And the comparison wouldn't be fair without considering the :
ALL feedback is greatly appreciated and welcome.
EDIT: Will all of these bikes accept rear racks/panniers? (Ortlieb)
