Windsor Tourist: first impressions

My first impression is that it is a good deal at $599. For those who don’t know, this is a bikesdirect bike, which comes boxed, shipped for free in the US. Some say it's a rebranded Fuji Touring...

Hmmm . . . yeah, the Ortlieb with the camera insert and extender (and map case) looks great for my needs (read wants). But, wow, add that up and it's $164 US.
