Time to get a serious touring bike, one that can take me across the continent without wimping out. My current touring bike suffers from several design issues, issues that were clearly market driven.
****As I have never seen any of these bikes, the list was compiled based on discussions on this forum and several others. As well, they all fall into a theoretical price range that I have to keep in mind.
****Here is the short list of bikes that interest me, Bruce Gordon's Rock&Roll, and BLT. Co-motion's Nor'wester and possibly the Americano. Although the Americano may be more bike than I'll need as I plan on keeping to paved roads as much as possible.
****Another potential brand are bikes by Revendell, I like their quirkiness.
****So, who here has some blatant opinions on my selection, or alternative makes.**
