I need some advice from touring rides. Here is my dilema. I have a specialized roubaix and love it. I have done century rides with no issues. Heres my issue. I am going to particpate in a charity ride that will be about 500 miles in a week. Its across the country and i am thinking about getting a surly lht because of the durability as i will need to ship the bike and it should be more comfortable and.... I will be riding with slower riders than me and i wont need the speed. I wont need to have the bike loaded down as well have a chase vehicle. What do you think? Do you recommend any other options? Should i just stick to my beloved roubaix?
