    the rite bike???

    Looking at the Raleigh RX 2.0 I'm looking at allot of dirt road riding, some pavement, some light trail riding. Looking for the perfect bike. I thought I could put a higher stem and some wider bars on the RX. Anyone have any other thoughts. I do want to put some racks on bike. We plan on doing the Allegheny pass next spring. Just thought this might be a good choice. I have a pugsly for the real mountain biking.

    I have the Raleigh Tamland 1.0 and use it basically the way you are planning on riding. It is my one do everything bike. It has a full steel frame and fork, and is a bit on the heavy side, but the extra weight would probably lend itself well for some light touring. It also has a compact crank and a 30 rear cog, which would also be helpful for light touring. If you are interested, I would be happy to go into more detail, but you get full 105, TRP Spyre discs, and a great riding frame for about 1600 US. One more thing that might be nice about it for touring is that it has more relaxed geometry than a typical cross bike, and has a higher BB, so it would be a little more stable with weight for most riders.
