I'm looking for a touring bike that will also spend time as a commuter. I originally wanted to do something with a three-speed internal hub, but I would probably have to build something from the frame up to get the set-up I want. Then I found the Castro Valley from Bianchi: http://www.bianchiusa.com/06_castro_valley.html#. I don't have much touring experience and was wondering what changes or other bikes some vets could recommend. What worries me are the wheels; 32 spokes and none too beefy.
