Has anyone seen this yet?
It's being marketed as a do everything/utility/light touring bike, probably not too different from the crosscheck and the similar pake and salsa bikes.
Seeing as this is just about exactly what I've been looking for, I was thinking of picking one up (frame/fork that is). My only concern is the load capacity. It says 30lb rear and 20lb front, which I'm sure are conservative estimates. What are the average load capacities for normal touring bikes? I'm 150 lbs and would like to use this for touring- do I have anything to worry about? I feel like I'd never be packing more than 50 lbs of gear anyway, but I'd like more experienced folks' opinions.
