I'm new to this, I hope these questions don't sound to odd. I have read a lot about these 2 bikes. I want to build one. I have an old 8 speed LX mt bike that I can use for some parts . I want a bike to mostly ride around town that I can also use for touring. They both seem great.
How would a Cross Check with a trailer be for touring, that way I don't have to worry about heel strike and I get a little more nimble bike at home.
Also concerning the 26" LHT. Would I size it like a Mt Bike? Or is the 26" for someone smaller than me? I'm 5'11" with 34.5" inseam.
