Gear Talk / New Rider Advice on Purchasing a Road Bike
« on: February 22, 2005, 10:42:03 pm »
I live in Chicago and don't like being out in the cold so I usually ride my trek 800 or 820 mountain bike from April to September.  Nothing fancy but it gets me from point a to b.    

I'm new to bike touring and would like to know which bike I should consider for purchase?

Price range if possible under $1000.00

I plan on attending one of the introduction to bicycle tours offered by ACA.

In the future I would like to do 7 to 15 day tours so I would like a bike that could hold a heavy load.

I’ve read the article Choosing a Touring Bike for the Road by Larry Diskin but I would like to know a name brand bike and model.  

I would like to thank every one that replies to my questions in advance.  Your information is greatly appreciated.

Thank you
