Metal Bike Commuter

In Anticipation of My Thirties

I’m making no secret about the fact that the end of next month takes me out of my 20s forever. So, my wife, (who remains in her 20s until the next decade) has been asking what I want for this momentous occasion.

Really, money is tight right now. So I don’t have the cash to spend thousands on a customized bicycle perfectly fitted for my frame.

I think I want a touring bike. I really like what I see with the Surly Long Haul Trucker, but I’m just not sure we can plunk down over a thousand dollars on it. That being said, I’ve checked out what Bikesdirect has to offer, and there are a few in my range that I think look nice, but I’m not sure about the quality.

For all of you experienced with touring cycles, what say you?
