The Fuji Touring is a good comfortable all around touring bike. With gearing that can handle good hills and some distance. It is not the lightest touring bicycle but is a great value and typically sells for around $770.
The cro-moly steel frame is well made and has the basic touring braze-ons: double water bottle mounts, front and rear rack mounts, and spare spoke holder.
The 700c wheels have 36 holes, 14 gauge spokes (adequate for loaded touring) and cantilever brakes for stopping. The shifters are STI, which I do not prefer for touring. STI brake/shifters are harder to get repaired while on the road, but many cyclists use them with excellent results. The 50/36/30 front crankset and 11/34 rear cassette combination is better for light to medium touring in rolling hills to smaller mountains. I believe that most long distance cyclist would prefer lower gears than this crankset offers.
