|but you asked for "the best touring bike available" and that would depend a lot on issues like fit for you along with the features, durability, etc. Something like a Bruce Gordon Rock n' Road ($2400). Check out the March 2002 edition of Adventure Cyclist for a buyer's guide. They list touring bikes from $600 (Jamis Aurora) to $4200 (Seven Tsunami Ti). Gordon has a reputation and has been in the racket longer than just about anybody, so you won't go wrong there.|

|Check out the Bianchi Volpe.
Reasonable price, decent components, comfortable ride.
|Nothing wrong with Atlantis..||retro|

|I like some of the other recommendations (Bruce Gordon, and I've always thought Cannondales were good value). But if I were going to make a trip like you've described (as I've been planning to for about 20 years), I'd take my Atlantis. Check it out at www.rivendellbicycles.com|| |
