Does the eTrex support maps? It looks like it is within by budget, however there are many models and some don't seem to support maps...

Ok, thank you. I am starting to understand more the difference between a touring bike and road bike. What about the Cannondale Tesoro Traveller Classic 2010. I can get one with a load of gear and almost no use for 500.Is the fact that this is an American brand a drawback in terms of getting spares, fixing, etc.

Thank you for all your comments! Keep them coming. :) So far, I have concluded from them that I should go for an aluminum frame bike. I should probably check that I can mount a sturdy pannier rack on the back also. Is it essential to wear one of those shorts? What about the shoes, I've never riden with them. Regarding the seat, I thought I wouldn't worry too much and in case I don't find it comfy I can always put a gel thingy on top. BTW I do cycle to work almost every day and I actually have training going up mountains so I guess the fitness issue is settled.
