    You gonna load it with 40 lbs of gear and tour, or just look at it?

    What about classic/vintage ? You have to get something along those lines to be complete.

    Since you have different styles of bicycles, which style would you choose if you could only have one for general biking? Would it end up being closer to a hybrid or a touring bike or something more specialized like a road or mountain bike?

    My first bike was a MTB because I thought I wanted to ride off road more. But I actually found myself riding more on the road. I can leave from my house to ride on the road. To ride trails, I have to drive somewhere. If I had to choose just one it would be the road bike.

    Sorry, but I didn't see cargo bike on that list, or a folder for travelling, and really, no fat bike?

    Do you have one of these? This was on my one-wheel trip to Slick Rock in Moab.

    Just chiming in about the 520. I took my 2012 520 cross country from March 2 - May 2nd and couldn't of been happier w/ the bike. Not a single problem with it and I saw 3-4 other 520's on the road. The LHT is almost equivalent, but let's face it, nowhere near as pretty of a bicycle.

    Tell yourself you're done if it makes you feel better, but in truth you've only just begun.
