Gear Talk / Touring Bikes ($1000 Range)
« on: March 01, 2004, 04:13:24 am »
I am planning to ride my bike across the country this summer.  I was just wondering what the best road/touring bike in the $1000 range is.  I understand that most often the "best" bike is the best fitting one, but don't entirely know what my options are.  A local bike shop tried to convince me that the Trek 520 was grossly overpriced and that a Jamis Aurora was a superior choice.  However, I am somewhat skeptical.  I am just wondering what all of you unbiased folk think.  Thanks.

General Discussion / Trans-Am trip costs

my trans am trip was about $1500 (not including gear).  however, i ate a lot of ramen, almost never paid for a place to sleep, and finished rather quickly.  i felt that my economic constraints made the trip more exciting, but i understand that people have different standards of comfort.  you can eat healthy for $10-15/day and free places to sleep aren't hard to find.

definitely verizon.  i did the trans-am route with sprint and did not get service through most of the middle part of the country.  in contrast, my tour partners had verizon and were much better off.
