Gear Talk / Specialized Crosstrail as a touring bike
« on: October 04, 2010, 01:55:50 pm »
I bought a Crosstrail last year as a general purpose, casual, rail trail, dirt road, kind of bike.  I ended up doing some touring with it on the C&O Canal/GAP Trail and a 3 day part way around Lake Champlain mostly paved road tour.   It performed well on those rides and was comfortable.  I'd like to do more touring but I'm concerned about it's suitability and even durability for more and longer tours.   I'm considering buying a Surly LHT or Trek 520, but I have reservations because the bikes are expensive and maybe the Crosstrail is good enough.  Any thoughts?
