    Fuji World 853 Touring Bike?

    Has anyone ridden this one?

    Or does anyone know more about it, or where it might be sold at a good price?

    Or of other (reasonably priced or unreasonably priced) 853 touring bikes, and how they compare with the Fuji?

    Rocky Mountain Sherpa touring bikes are made with 853 tubing. Last year price abou $1400 for the
    30 and 1100 for the 10 model. I have the 30 model and feel it is very comfortable to ride.

    I have a 2005 Fuji World. It's mostly a commuter/around town bike, but I've done some touring on it. It's a great bike. Very comfortable but not an absolute tank like a lot of pure tourers. But not a road/racing bike by any means - still pretty long, stable, and beefy. I like the 105 brifters and the nontraditional (ergo?) drop handlebars. My girlfriend has a Surly LHT and the World is definitely a "sport" touring bike compared to the LHT.

    All in all it's a great transportation + non-expedition touring bike. I'm very happy with it.
