own Jamis Coda Sport, but Do I need another bike for touring Europe for a month?


Jamis Coda Sport 2012 owner here, and I've been riding a lot.

did short 2~ 3 day trip to Cape Cod, and was fun and fine. (wasn't bring many stuff, so my pannier was pretty empty.)

But one thing I don't like about it is it feels heavy when I ride this on normal road. I want little more speed, and better brake. (tune up serviced every year form lbs)

I'm planning to go to Europe (Netherlands, Swiss, and maybe 2~3 more country for a month). It's going to be pretty chill touring since me and my buddy we want to look around city, but at the same time we're willing to

ride 60~80km a day when we're passing less interesting part of the country

i'll bring tent and sleeping bag as well so I guess what I want to do is light~ medium weight touring.

other than that, I'll be riding this new bike a lot in the city, (brooklyn, queens or manhattan some times, but it gets nasty in the city, so I'd say mostly Brooklyn and Queens).

I'm thinking to upgrade my bike, but my budget is limited to $ 1000.

what options do I have?

currently I'm looking for a Bianchi Volpe (used or lbs carries them on sale now under $1000), Fuji Touring, Jamis Aurora.

what would you recommend?

Should I buy a new bike or keep mine and change brake and saddle and etc...?
