    New touring bike

    Just bought a Novara Randonee. I'm quite surprised by how much I got for the money. I looked at the Trek 520 ($1279) the Surly LHT ($1179), both at my LBS. I also looked at the Fuji Touring ($859) at the Performance store in Portland, OR while on a trip. then i bought the REI bike, ($999)but with the annual dividend plus an addtional 5% back because I charged it on my REI visa, I'll wind up with a bike speced as good and in some cases better than any of the above bikes for $850. Seemed like a no-brainer to me. By the way, the bike rides much nicer than the Fuji for me. I didn't ride the other two because they seemed a bit too expensive.

    Congrats on the buying the Randonee.
    It is not about the destination. It is about the journey getting there.
    Competitors work until they get it right, but champions work until they can't get it wrong.
