Used 2004 Super Galaxy coast to coast USA - over 4,000 miles. Replaced Schwalbe Marathon tyres with Marathon Plus 700 x 38c - highly recommended - NO punctures. Replaced saddle with cheap Bontrager compressed foam (my preference). Replaced rubbish front pannier rack with a Tubus but rear rack was fine. Spokes, wheels, gears, frame, headset, chain set (all the important bits) PERFECT for whole journey. I damaged (my fault - by overtightening) Shorty 4 brakes - spares were difficult to find in US. Excellent handling full touring load. VERY good touring bike. Excellent frame. Gearing took in the Appalachians, Rockies no problem. Now have over 8,000 miles and only service was new pedals and chain. Wouldn't have swapped it for any other bike I saw on the road.
