I need a bike for my first ever bike tour, and desperately need some help... I'm quite new to the "bike world", and have a hard time understanding all the technical jargon. After some research, I'm thinking this might be a good choice;
A few questions then:
- Anyone with personal experience of this model, who'll give a quick review?
- If no personal experience, does it seem like a decent enough touring bike, or are there any big red flags based on the listed components?
- According to their size chart, I'm in between two sizes (S,M). Sadly, no local dealers nearby, so I can't physically try it before buying... so, which to choose? Is smaller generally better for not destroying your back, or is it the other way around?
If anyone has the time to answer, favorably in a "biking for dummies" sort of language, I would be eternally grateful!
