This thread just proves how the marketing departments for modern road bikes have totally distorted the general public's view of cycling.
Now when anyone things about cycling all they picture is mountain bikes, beach cruisers, or ultra modern racing road bikes.
I love my Atlantis which was designed to be a fully loaded touring bike. And I never planned on touring with it and probably never will. It's just a great bike for all around riding. Commuting, relaxed club rides, running errands, fast sprints... had it up to 28mph on short flat sprint the other day... with platform pedals. Tips the scales at around 32lbs as seen in this pic...
