From casual commuters to round the world adventures, a touring bike is a great way to get to your destination, near or far. Regardless of whether you’re looking to add pannier racks and bags for a long haul adventure, or a simple and efficient single speed set-up to cruise down to the cafe and back. As everyone’s needs are different, a frame is a great blank canvas to plan your new ride around.
Steel is the most common material when looking at touring frames. This material is affordable, robust and most importantly, easily repairable if the worst were to happen while you were days away from the nearest bike shop.
Whilst touring bikes can be purchased complete for competitive prices, there’s just something special about building a bike from the frame up, advancing your bike mechanic skills and making the bike truly yours in the process.
