If anyone has some advice to offer I would greatly appreciate it! I've been car-less and biking for years but on a low budget so I've never hooked myself up with a proper bike. I've gone on a handful of long distance trips but on pretty inappropriate bikes. I spotted a Fuji Touring 07 at the local bike shop for $500, great condition. I feel pretty uneducated to make this decision so I would prefer ya'll just did it for me..
The previous owner changed out so many of the parts. He put a carbon fork on that I feel doesn't make sense on a touring bike? The owner said he could probably get the original fork back. Also, I feel like I've never rode a bike that is my correct size so I can't tell what it should feel like. I've only had road bikes so the set-up feels a bit different when I test ride. My inseam is 86cm, exactly half my height, 5' 7.5". The frame is a 58cm. If anyone has some insight on this model and sizing please school me!
Thank you so much,
