Bridgestone XO-3 bikes suitable for touring?
Hi, I am on a tight budget and am trying to put touring bikes together for the whole family. My in-laws have two XO series Bridgestone bikes and I am wondering if these are suitable for touring. The bike that will be my wife's is an XO-3. Could she tour on this and if so what changes to the bike should I make if any?
I believe the second bike is an XO-3 too but I am not sure. It's blue and I think it might have mustache handlebars... My father in-law is 5'9'' and I am 6'2". Would this bike work for me if I changed the stem length and made other changes? If not for touring could I use it for a city bike or would be it just be too small? Note, I have a long upper body and shorter legs...
