Looking at buying a new bike this spring and really like the Sprint as I'm into doing lots of weekend rides and will be touring the east coast of Canada this year: New Brunswick, PEI, Nova Scotia then drop into Maine before heading back to Montreal Quebec. Anyways, point is, I love the Sprint but just don't fit on it so well...legs are crunched up too much...The Tiger on the other hand is a very comfy bike, or so it seems. My question is, is it a capable touring bike? Also is spending an extra $1000 for the center stand worth it? Any other pointers/ advice would be appreciated!
