General Discussion / Buying the right size touring bike.
« on: August 25, 2010, 09:55:24 pm »
I have a trek 1000, thinking about buying my first touring bike and I want to buy the right size. I see the Surly for instance has about 6 sizes. When I bought my Trek 1000 I was new to biking and not sure if it is even the right size. Even though I ride between 2500 and 3500 miles a season, my upper body, (shoulders, neck, upper arms) ache quite often. So I am not sure I even have the proper size road bike. I would like to start taking some tours and need to know the right size so that I can cycle for days without the upper body aches.

Trying to plan my first tour, is it advisable to wear shoes that clip in or not while on the road. I have a Trek 1000 what is the minimum size tire i should have for a short tour. Any advice is appreciated.

I ride a Trek 1000, approx. 4 years old. I have one that I ride in Michigan,  and one that I ride in Florida in the spring. Bought both at the same time. The Trek in Florida, has had 4 broken spokes (at different times), the Trek in Michigan has had none. Any reason a different climate would cause problems with spokes? Or is this just a coincedence.

Last year I put in about 3000 miles. But not mort than 43 at a time. I never get to a point where my rear end is comfortable enough to ride farther, like a century. Any advice would be appreciated.
