My current touring bike is a Trek Checkpoint customized for my good self. And I love it.
IF I was to upgrade, it would be to the somewhat more expensive Priority 600x.
In fact, my guru — Ryan Duzer — switched from a Checkpoint to the Priority. That’s Ryan in the photo.
One of the designers, some call this bike the Duzer Cruiser.
I think I’d prefer the no maintenance belt drive pinion system. And the nearly unbreakable Gates Carbon Drive. AND the suspension looks pretty good on this tough bike.
The supply chain problems of pandemic is over. You can get a 600x stock in the USA, as I post, within 5 days.
