So I'm about to buy a new bicycle that I plan to use for long distance commute, fitness training and touring on vacations.
Looking for a fast well-balanced bike, I thought about a hybrid or a flat bar road bike.
Which of these you think is more suited for touring while being fast for my other activities?
Thanks for your the sage opinion.
