    I've had a couple of True Temper bikes. I actually liked the Schwinn Traveler. But I think I went into that with lower expectations than the Trek, which I just didn't care for.

    I would echo what cycle maven said, those Tenax Scwinns are great. Also, don't overlook some of the nicer Fuji Bicycles as well.

    I have to say, our Specialized dealer here has a good thing going. But I think they do a good job of selling a lifestyle, not a bike. Teams and groups and riders in all sorts of events, and they help...

    Really impressive bike, glad it worked out well. The Golden Boy's High Sierra looks like a fine do-it all bike as well. Tourers and solid old mountain bikes do that do it all thing well. These are a...

    Wouldn't cow manure be cheaper and more environmentally friendly, as a methane source? I believe Russian Automobiles may be able to run for a short while on the gasses from their own decomposition.

    I feel a lot more comfortable on a 1980s steel tourer with lugged frame, price, ride, overall workmanship.

    Good luck tomorrow. The FUJI tourers are great bikes, sometimes they slip in under the radar. I have a Touring Series IV I got because no one else was interested.

    You have some good trails for that in Wisconsin. My plan as well, just in Illinois. Less flippin', more ridin'.

    Love my Cannondale H600, I've put trekking bars on it and use it for most everything, in spite of the growing number of uberroadies in my area. The derailleurs on some of those bikes are so loud, it...
