Hi guys. I have been wanting to get a road bike. I was looking at getting a regular road bike until I realized that tour bikes were a whole different machine. I have a budget of $2k but dont neccesarily need to spend it all if I can find a nice bike for less. The only one that I have looked at is the Trek 520. I like the Trek but wanted to see if there were better options for less/more. I would probably only be using the bike to get around town and go out riding on the weekends but I like the idea of being able to load it up and hit the road.
