Anyone touring with a Cannondale Adventure headshock bike?
I just picked up a really nice 60cm Cannondale Adventure 600 headshock bike frame/fork in a trade today. I had most of the parts needed to build it up laying around so I started out with trekking bars, Velocity Dyad wheels, Shimano Deore/LX derailleurs, some new linear pull brakes etc. I'm generally a dyed-in-the-wool steel guy, but I'm seriously considering using this as a secondary touring bike and gravel, forest, and fire road touring or riding.
Has anyone else here toured with one of these, I'd love to seee pictures and any thoughts or recommendations.
