THE BIKE YOU'D TURN TO IF YOU WERE TO QUIT YOUR JOB AND EMBARK ON AN IMPROMPTU PEDAL-POWERED WORLD TOUR!
Build-wise, we dressed the frame with 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 wish list; even going so far as to include a Shimano dynamo hub! Expedition-ready straight from the box - just add rider, luggage and a strong sense of adventure.
