Hi guys and gals
I am looking around for a new road bike. The comfort style bikes might be up my ally, Roubaix, Synapse, Domane, etc. I would also like to use this bike for a 4 or 5 day ride this fall. At first, I thought I would try to travel really light (staying in hotels). But I think that may be too idealistic if i get into trouble. So, I am going to probably bring a tent, etc. I am thinking about getting a Bob trailer or buying an AL seat post and using some sort of post mounting setup.
Last night when I went to check out a Synapse, the salesman tried to first steer me to buying a cross bike as he was unsure if the rear triangle would be capable of towing a trailer. What say you? Do ya think I can use a Bob trailer or seat post rack on a carbon frame??? Any help would be appreciated, or if you can suggest some other resources that would be great. Thanks.
