Gear Talk / Re: What kind of bike?
« on: October 02, 2012, 12:32:51 am »
I have limited experience, but i research bikes a lot.  The Casseroll is a great bike, for under $1000, it's a steal, but it's more of a light tourer.  Salsa makes the Vaya for loaded touring.  Almost all the commonly seen touring bikes like Surly LHT and Trek 520 are going to be about $1200-1400.  You could try looking for sales on those bikes or possibly used.  REI sells Novara bikes around $1000 that I have heard are good, also if you can find a Fuji Tourist or Jamis Aurora, those bikes I believe are closer to the $1000 mark.  Hope this helps, good luck.
