I'm trying to find a bike for a Trans America this summer and was wondering if a road bike would be expectable as opposed to a touring bike.
I'm a poor college student so price is defiantly an issue as well as the fact that I'll need this bike after the trip as a main source of transportation. What bikes are out there? Would a Schwinn Fastback Sport work? If you've done this trip, what kind of bike did you use?
