Burely Django, Hepcat for touring
« on: August 03, 2019, 11:54:10 am »
I am interested in a cross US ride and am deciding on a bike.  I have ridden bents for 14 years and have 4 I could use.  The trike is not an option and is used for short rides with no gear.  The RANS F5 is comfortable but only accommodates 650 skinny tired wheels.  The Schlitter Encore is a possibility but I would have to have beefier wheels and probably pull a trailer.  The most obvious choice would be the Burley Django as is it comfortable and fairly compact, however would require carrying spares for different sized front and rear wheels.  I would be interested in hearing from anyone who has used a Django or Hepcat for long touring.  My other choice is to purchase a more upright diamond frame but would rather put that money into the trip then into a new bike.
