is this a good deal
« on: March 05, 2006, 01:19:16 am »
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?

The bike is probably suitable.  Whether it's a good deal depends on how much you have to pay for it. A 6-8 year-old Schwinn isn't worth much.
