Northwestrider replied to the thread Trying to decide between LHT, Fuji Touring and Specialized AWOL..
" I ride a LHT and like it. If you like your current bike, as others have said you do have options . Most of us can get by without a front rack, in fact not having one would force you to avoid carrying too much . There are small bags that hang from the top tube that may give you the increased volume... "

WizardOfBoz replied to the thread 2016 Giant Defy 1 Disc v. 2016 Trek Domane 2.3.
" I like the Domane, and was sold on it because of the isozone suspension. It's very confortable. I have had Shimano DA breaks on Al rims and have not felt the need for better brakes. Or maybe I should say I've been able to brake just fine. There's a hill near me that ends very close to a "T"... "

" The Nashbar sandals are more flexible than the Shimano ones overall. The Shimano ones were stiff enough for me to get up 26% switchbacks standing on Ebbets Pass in the Sierra, but they flex ahead of the pedal contact (toes) in order to make them comfortable for walking. "
