Gear Talk / Kona Jake vs Trek 520

Hi All,

I realize there are many posts on bikes, but I can't decide on whether is is worth spending extra money to buy a touring specific bike.

I have a feeling everyone will tell me it is, however can you please explain why.

I should add, I am an avid cyclist (I race) but have never toured and am biking from seattle to Tijuana in August, I plan on biking roughly 75-100 miles a day for as long as it takes.

I can get a Kona Jake for $800 dollars plus take,
 vs the trek 520 for $1200

I plan on packing fairly lightly given the distance of the trip

Hi all,

This August I and 2 Friends are biking down the pacific coast in 25 days. I was wondering...not including flights or equipment...what is a reasonable per day budget? We plan on camping 5-6 days a week.
