Hi everyone! I recently found this great forum and finally have a chance to introduce myself. I live in Western WI which has a wonderful network of lightly traveled country roads for riding. I've been a life-long road cyclist reaching my mid-century point but improving with age. My bikes are all mid 80's vintage (Bridgestone 400, Trek 400, and a sweet touring bike built up from a Specialized Expedition frame), but I'm in the market for a new light tourer for sagged trips. I'm leaning toward a Sequoia Elite and have a post asking for anyone's experience with them. I'm pretty much into recreational riding for fitness and get out on some type of cross state week long tour every 2-3 years, and dream of doing a trans America (at least in sections) some day. Glad to meet you all.
