I am going to start doing a lot of bike riding and I am looking for some good touring bicycles. I have decided to ride my bike to work every day, so I need something that is really dependable. I have had a few mountain bikes before but never a touring bike. I have read that touring bikes are basically a combination of a mountain bike and a road bike. I am looking for a bike that will last me for many years and am willing to pay extra to get the quality that I want. I also would like to find a bike that has a really long warranty so I do not have to worry about buying a new bike for a long time. I also would to make sure that my bike will be comfortable on long rides.
I have not ridden a bike in a long time but I did enjoy it before. I cannot wait to start riding again but am hoping that I can find the right bike for me without going over a thousand dollars.
