Designed for long days in the saddle when comfort is key, this classic steel rig comes replete with everything you'll need for your next trek. Upright geometry and a mountain-bike drivetrain will keep you pedaling long after others have retired; mud-clearing cantilever brakes and puncture-resistant tires mean you won't think twice about veering off-road. However, we were won over by such details as rack and fender rigs, which let you easily convert it from a commuter bike into the ideal touring-camping steed. [$1,200;]
