Long distance cycling, touring bike or cyclocross bike? Empty Long distance cycling, touring bike or cyclocross bike?

on Wed Apr 13, 2016 11:17 am
I'm looking to start long distance cycling within the USA and considering getting either a cyclocross bike or a touring bike for the purpose but I'm not sure which would be best.
I currently ride fairly substantial distances, by most peoples terms, on a road bike but without any luggage.
If I were to start distance cycling on routes like coast to coast or end to end I'd do so with the minimum amount of luggage so wouldn't necessarily need a bike capable of holding heavy panniers.
I like the general look of cyclocross bikes and according to the reviews I've read, some are suitable for touring such as the Specialized Tricross range and I could also use this for general bad weather commuting which I regularly do but I'm wondering whether a 'proper' tourer would be a better option.
Any suggestions / opinions?
