56cm 1990 Very clean low miles. This has triple butted splined cro-mo tubing. Great touring bike! See what Sheldon Brown says about this bike!  $800 with all new cables, tires & bar wrap (have a favorite tape or tire? let me know!).  Only reason I am selling it is I ride a 53cm. I am a professional bike mechanic. If you have any questions email me at or reply here. Pictures available upon request.

I am going with a new touring frame. I am looking at a Long Haul Trucker, Soma Saga, Aurora Elite, or a Raleigh Port Townsend (the last two would be complete bikes. Cost is not as much a factor as reliability. Would be touring around the States and Canada. Self supported  with tent bag, cooking gear etc..  I am 61 years old, 160 lbs medium frame. (53 or 54 cm.)  Personal preference is for 700 wheel base but with good logic I can be talked into 26. I ride a Brooks or an old Ideale (my personal favorite) saddle and I am a bike mechanic so other than frame repairs I have no worries. I have read some on each one of these but I want some feedback from users with real life expedrience
