OK I am rubbish at choosing bikes so after advice and probably do not know enough.
Looking for a light touring type bile as I have a couple of charity rides coming up this year and only have a Specialized Epic which is inappropriate.
Budget not too important as I promised myself a second bike but looking at a bit of an all rounder.
Use will be tracks and footpaths along with road. Did the Trans Penine Trail last year so similar terrain to that really.
Thinking Salsa Fargo or Vaya type or CX capable of taking a pannier. It will never be heavily loaded but something I can comfortably do 100 miles a day on for a few days and use as an all year round bike. Probably want to have disks on it as well.
