Gear Talk / Schwinn bike
« on: March 13, 2006, 08:43:16 pm »
I am primarily a mtn. biker but did my first tour last year (Natchez Trace).  I used my mtn. bike.  I have an opportunity to purchase a Schwinn Passage (5-6 yrs. old), less than 1100 miles on it, great condition.  Would this be a good bike for touring? I can't spend a lot on a 2nd bike. Oh, the seller is asking $250.  I plan on touring 1-2 times per year.

I rode the Trace from Jackson to Nashville back in May.  Would recommend picking up the book, Bicycling the Natchez Trace.  It will list stores, places to eat, etc.

I forgot that I had posted on this site.  Have you done the Trace already? When we rode the Trace, I picked up a copy of a book, Biking the N.T., by Glen Wanner.  Great book!

When is your trip?  Also, what southern states will you be riding through?

I'm new to touring. Toured the Natchez Trace last year and will do the Katy Trail this year.  Have been using a hardtail mtn. bike.  Have an opportunity to purchase a Schwinn Passage road bike (6-8 yrs old).  Would this be a good bike for touring?  Or should I continue to use mtn. bike with narrower tires?
