Watup! Lansing, MI

Hello everyone!

For the past little while Ive come to this site for appraisals on a few vintage bikes Ive come to own. As of the past few days, Ive learned about bike-america.org's BIG cross country bike trip happening this summer! I needed some advice as to what kind of bike would suit my needs for a trip from Lansing MI to Washington DC! Ive ridden about 15 miles total in one day and am so in love with my sport that Im willing to ride well out of state to promote green travel and peace!

Help me out! Need long distance bike buying advice! If interested visit bike-america.org!!<33

Sup!

Welcome to Forums, glad you joined in as a member. Regarding your question, you could try asking that in Touring subforum. That said, people tour around the globe with single speed utility bikes, dedicated and very expensive touring rigs, and anything inbetween. Most any bike can do the distance you plan to ride, it's more a question of what you want from the bike.
