fuji touring vs blt bruce gordon

hi!
I know this is a price over quality question but is it really worth the double price(fuji 850$,blt 1610$)?
Thanks in advance for your help.

Depends on what you want. Is there really a difference between Cadillac and Chevy? Between Folgers and Starbucks? Between Mountain Brook (obscure reference) and "your wine here"?

The Fuji is a good bike for a good value. Mass produced using foreign labor. The BLT is an American made bike that has good parts and is already for touring. You wouldn't have to get much or change much for the bike to be ready for touring right out of the box.

It depends on what you want to do with it, how long you are going to keep it, and whether you want to run with the herd (like touring cyclists are much of a herd) or what to stand out.
