Gear Talk / Down to three bikes....
« on: October 18, 2010, 06:42:33 pm »
In the spring I am taking off an a multi-month tour. It will involve all road types. I am 6' 2" tall and weigh 245 lbs. I am not an experienced rider. My trip will be solo and self contained.

Bike choices? A.) Surly LHT 60cm w/ 26 " wheels
                   B.) Trek 520
                   C.) Novaro Safari 21" frame w/ 29" wheels

Qualities I am looking for...  strength and ease of emergency repair, availability of replacement parts/components...cost $1000 or less...... upright seating position and comfort..(speed is not as important as scenery)

Would you tow a trailer? single/double wheeled? Or carry front & rear panniers?

Anything I haven't considered but should?

Thanks for the feedback!
