Giant Revolt 2
Revolt 2 (2014) - Bikes | Giant Bicycles | United States
I'm really like this bike. It has places for rack and mudguards, it's a "gravel grinde" . I don't have any info about this category, nor this bike, but it seems it's a decent all-purpose bike. Of course the question is how good is the frame for packaged tours. It is commercialized that it can handle month long tours.... well ok but I miss real reviews or oppinions. I'm a newbie for touring and I could use this bike as a commuter, going to the college, but from a tour perspective I need your help. On the other hand I really don't know what it is? Is it a cyclocross bike?
It does? Where? I don't see any eyelets.

it has one set of eyelets front and back... the rear set is just difficult to see...

should do everything you've mentioned. i'm not much for rating bikes, but i do like the looks of that one.
Any better suggestions around 1000 usd? There's the Ridgeback Tour 2013 Touring Bike | Evans Cycles or cross-trekking bikes are better for what I looking for? Really don't want to give up the horn handlebars... they are so comfortable.
