The original and the best – the bike you turn to if you were to quit your job and embark on an impromptu pedal-powered world tour!
We have sent countless customers who have embarked on journeys around the world on this model; China, India, Southern Europe, Nordics etc.
Groupset wise it’s a Tiagra triple at the front is the one for climbing the hills with luggage.
Build-wise,the frame has durable, no-nonsense components that we knew from personal experience are tour/expedition worthy and should last the sorts of high-mileages for which the bike was intended. The spec list should, by all accounts, read like a cyclo tourist’s wishlist; even going so far as to include an Shimano dynamo hub with B&M front and rear lights, Tubus racks, Marathon tyres, 36 spoke wheels on Rhino rims, it even comes with spare spokes for that “snapped a spoke in Mongolia moment”.
Expedition-ready straight from the box – just add rider, luggage and a strong sense of adventure.
