Touring Bike

Bonjour Ó tous les passionnÚs, Hi all bike riders

I have a great one for you, can you help me?

In a word, what would be the ideal bike for rough roads touring? easily availible in eastern canada?!

I presently use a converted old, but great quality mountain bike(slicks, hard nose, cantilever brakes). It has about 15 years of age, and all the upper-end parts were switched to low quality ones, thats ok for day-to-day riding.

Thanks,
Lars

Also look in the touring forum (wealth of information) or on Crazy Guy on a Bike web site.

Let us know how it goes.
