I've used this bike on week-long supported tours. Mostly I ride it on crushed stone paths. I was wanting a bike to take on 30-50 mile road rides, camp out, then return. Maybe spend two nights out.
If nothing else, I would like to put on some handlebars that would give me more hand positions. Anything else I could do to make it a better touring bike?
My other bike is a Specialized Sequoia but I didn't think it was strong enough to carry loads. I'm 200lbs.
