Hi, I want to purchase a new bike, or a used one. I'm a pedicab driver here in Manhattan and I've been riding 6 to 10 hours a day for the last 6 months. I want to take advantage of my new cycle powers and do some riding up into the Catskills this summer. I want something that I can use to carry some camping equipment, enough for a few days, maybe a week. Everyone seems to like the Long Haul Trucker, but I don't have any build skills or tools to put one together. So, I'm thinking of the Cross Check....will this bike suit my needs? How much does the Cross Check sell for?

Thanks
