Alright need a daily driver/coast to coast tourer.
I found an '04 specialized sequoia specialized elite for 675 and will up grade the rims and breaks right off the bat putting it up to around 1100. I have ridden the bike unloaded and its a great ride.
The only way I can get a trek 520 of a LHT is to buy before I ride because I need a 62cm frame and I'm really hesitant about slapping money down on a bike I haven't ridden.
Should I just pull the trigger and order a LHT because there is no way it can't be the best bike ever because thats what I've been reading.
Thanx in advance.
