Simplicity and Robustness
Intended for travel and long excursions, the touring bike is ideal for cycle tourism and swallowing up the miles. Equipped with a robust frame (mostly steel), allowing the installation of luggage and saddlebags , it is generally without frills and equipped with simple and effective equipment (no fragile advanced technology). It favors a simple transmission that can be adapted to all gradients.
Remember to equip yourself well before long hikes! Beasty Bike recommends that you wear cycling shorts and mittens to avoid chafing as well as a good rain jacket . To avoid fatigue, consider installing one or more bottle cages on the bike.
