Hey, my bf (wiles9) has posted already about our trip from Barcelona to Belfast. We have been looking for bikes for the past few weeks now and have been having some problems, touring bikes are very hard to come by in Barcelona!
Steve has just bought the Cannondale touring classic, i was interested in the specialized tricross but after reading reviews ect it seems to be trying to be doing to much at once and is not really the best option. The problem now is that the only option for me seems to be either Steve´s bike, the Trek Pilot 1.2 (which i really dont like) or ordering something off the internet.
I phoned Trek spain and was told that the 520 is not availible in europe and i was also looking at the Dawes Audax Supreme which seems nice but you cant seem to get Dawes out here at all!! In my head buying off the internet seems a bad idea because of sizing and how it feels to ride but i dont no what else to do, any advice? If i was to measure myself is there any way of ensuring that a bike is going to fit me well?
