Biking Across Canada, Helping Buying Road Bike
 
Hi me and a friend of whom I lived with for half a year are planning to Ride across Canada in July or June of 2009.

And at this point I need to buy a road bike for this and was hoping for some suggestions!

I will need to be able to put Saddle Bags on the back and over my handle bars. Besides that it just needs to be able to hold a sleeping bag + mat.

The terrain will pretty much just be road. Will be crossing the 2nd largest country in the World. Moutains, Plains, Hills, Bridges, and everything in between.

Thanks IN advance!

This is more Touring than Road. Perhaps a Mod will move this to the Touring section for ya.

Do a search for threads on the following bikes:

Surly LHT
Trek 520
Novara Randonee
Windsor Touring

Those are the bikes most often discussed on the touring forum, but a search for these will show up several alternatives as well.
