"off road tourer"

please define


In my case it is a Xizang with a quids worth of pannier rack on the back. Any bike with rack mounts will do and as in my case p-clips can be used if you don't have rack mounts.


that was my thoughts TK
a bike with a rack

mind you that nishiki might be a prime candidate for a build

I've ridden a Dawes Galaxy around the Cairngorms off road


Oooww yes spend all your time wondering if the next BANG! will be the one that breaks the frame, and using all your concentration counteracting the frame bending and twisting, sounds like fun :?


Ha - the frame I'm using is 19 years old, lightweight alu and already has a fairly sizeable ding in the non-driveside chainstay!

Don't get me wrong you can use any frame you like :wink:
But I want to enjoy the ride and the scenery not worried or distracted by the bike.

RobMac, if you insist on using a tourer made of Titanium spagetti then your paranoia is justified :lol:

Never felt my Galaxy was twisting beneath me or was in danger of snapping and mine was one of the skinny 70's machines. The 80's onward models had beefed up frame tubes and were even tougher. Brazed 531 is the steel of choice :wink:
