The paired spokes on the Cannondale have me curious as to if they will suit my riding. I am 95% on paved trails and rural highways, 5% on dirt trails. I average about 60 miles a week and do at least one week long trip averaging 60 miles a day a year. On the long trips I do have rear panniers and carry about 25 pounds of camping gear on the bike.
I'm also open to other bike suggestions, my only requirement is that I don't want any suspension, my 7100 has a suspension fork and I don't care for it. Thanks.
