Yeah, that's my conundrum. The only bike I know I want to do more than 40 miles on is a Roubaix. But I'm not sure how the bike will work for touring, especially loaded down. I'm not sure a steel touring bike would be more comfortable than my aluminum Secteur that I don't like to ride.

I do know a couple of things. I don't want to take my main Roubaix on tours and I don't want to use the Secteur for it either. So now I just need to decide what to replace the Secteur with at this point.
