Hey guys, I'm literally completely new to this but I'm planning a trip from London to Nice and am looking for a good but not expensive touring bike! So far I've been thinking about Fuji Touring 2015 but it doesn't have disc brakes and I thought that was pretty important for long journeys + where it's likely to be quite wet weather. I also like the Genesis Tour de Fer 2015 but its slightly over my budget and it looks pretty heavy (14.18kg? Is that heavy? It sounds heavy)! What do you guys think? Opinions? Other suggestions?
