There are not many choices today, it seems, for a true touring bike and I have been keeping an eye out for a used touring bike. Rare indeed.
Cannondale ST 800 or 2000 (ST1000 if I could find one)
Some of the manufacturers have gone to S, M, L and XL thus complicating the choices since the bikes are not in stock at the shops. A 55cm Randonee fits quite well.
The only other consideration 700c vs 26". What is the consensus? I have heard that 700 tires and tubes are tough to come by.
Suggestions for selecting a bike and/or finding a used bike?
