Here it is, our first custom touring frame. This was a project for the fun and joy of learning the art of frame building. We may become involved further in custom touring bikes in the future.
This bike is setup with longer chainstays to accommodate racks. It has an additional third water bottle mount and braze-ons for mounting racks. A Surly Cross-Check fork was used. Mostly Shimanon 105 components were installed with a triple chain ring. The tires are the touring worthy Schwalbe Marathon XR’s with Mavic A719 rims.
