I did a search of the forums but it came up with 500 responses and none of them had much to do with my question so i appologise if this has been covered before, i really did use the search function first.
i was given a 70's model fuji road bike for free by a generous craigslister. i rode it a few times and it was creaky so i took it to the LBS- when i got it back from a tune up the guy said it was an okay bike but for what i wanted to do- it was not the ideal bike. I asked what bikes they had that would be good for road riding, and light touring on a strictly recreational level. he recomended the Specialized Sequoia. i looked at it and it can have racks mounted to it, it can hold 3 cages, and i would love to have the shifters at my fingertips instead of those silly downtube shifters.
Any other recreational roadies/tourers riding a sequoia?
If you guys/girls think its a good deal i'll go order one. i really like this shop and it seems like the bike would fit my needs pretty well.
Thanks in advance.
