    What do you guys think about this beauty? I`m planning Europe trip(about 4-5k km, maybe more) in next 2-3 years so Im in a search of a new bike that can do this without any problems. Tnx in advance.

    nice bike, with a tubus rear rack, i wouldn't use the front dynamo light that is wired to the front hub, install there a front rack and you are set to go, oh but, you can consider a rigid fork, travelling in paved routes through Europe you dont need a suspension fork,

    I built one of these up for my girlfriend. They appear to be a really good quality frame. I personnally would get the disc brake model for touring. Its the only way to go. I tourer fully loaded (me 100kg+; bike 15kg; panniers 30kg) using a Cannondale tourer with Avid BB7 discs. Fantastic stopping power even in the wet. I've never had any success using rim brakes touring, they usual only slow you down & won't stop you in a hurry!
