Hey so I'm relatively new to cycling and and even more so to touring, but would like to do a lot more this summer. So I'm looking for a touring bike as my only properly fitting bike right now is a Colnago. What do you guys think of this?
Catalog pages here:
I'll also be using it as a commuter so this seems to be a great fit. The triple-butted and splined (never heard of this) Miyata tubing seems strong but can anyone confirm that this will hold up to touring weight?
I expect to be doing touring just within WA for now but will likely continue over the years. Do you think this could be a "loaded" or just a "light" tourer? For now I'll probably just be running a rear rack but expect to load up a bit in the future.
