Hi there,

I am after a high quality steel mountain bike to convert to a touring machine. I am 5 ft 9 with a 33" inside leg think I want something with like a 18-19 inch frame a 22 inch top tube.

Would love a Muddy Fox or a Marin Pine mountain or something of similar quality. A lightweight frame and rack mounts for panniers are essential. It will be taking me a long way (Istanbul to London) so i want something solid and with a bit of character. Garish paint jobs welcome!

Best regards.

Flood
