I'm in China (peace corps) and am looking for a touring bike. I want to have fun with it on weekends (30-100 mi rides)(I have a lot of time on my hands) and some major touring on breaks and before going home. There's a giant and a merida store in my city, but no quality used road bikes floating around. Any suggestions? I'm looking at this one - http://www.giant.com.cn/zh-ht/bikes/...00/6835/48041/ I'd definitely want drop handlebars, but I'd rather not have to make a lot of adjustments, especially since nashbar doesn't ship to china. I make ~250 USD/mo so it's gotta be cheap. Of course, there's always the option of tricking out a flying pigeon cruiser.
