Unfourtanetly, I'm a noob in specs, but I've seen some reviews about it . A lot of people complaining about the specs, altough it seems a very good bike. I can get it for realitvely cheap on a sale and use it for commuting, but mainly I want to use it for loaded tours, maybe go for a month long tour. I don't know how good is this bike for that purpose. Yes there are a lot of trekking bikes and touring bikes, but in hungary the roads are very bad, a traditional touring bike would fail because there are not so many bike routes , you have to go through gravel paths, grass fields etc. That's why I think a cyclocross bike should be the best.
