How about my bike? I've never used it for touring before, but I want to try...
It's a Trek 720 Hybrid frame with 700x38 wheels, XT/LX derailers+shifters, Deore cranks, canti brakes. I already use it for commuting every day. The only thing is it's a bit heavy, and it has a mountain-type bar, meaning I am in a very upright position. I'm thinking everybody would probably recommend a drop bar for touring?
