I am considering a Comotion Norwester as my next touring bike.Anyone with any experience or thoughts on this bike?

I took delivery of my Norwester early 2005. It's a fabulous bike - I highly recommend it.

I have used mine for limited loaded touring (overnight weekend camping trips, with 30# of gear in panniers) as well as extensive club rides and training. I've put about 3500 miles on her.

I started out with ultegra 10spd, but switched to 9spd so that I obtain lower gear ratios, to handle mountains with a load - - I will be missing those ultegra shifters though!

Good luck!

You might save a bit of money and still get a quality bicycle with the Burley Hudson. I have a brand-new one and think it is great. I can't compare it to the Comotion though since I haven't ridden or seen it.
