Bicycling Magazine called it everything a touring bike should be. So, who are we to disagree?

  • Features

    • Load it up! Classic touring frame accommodates fore and aft racks and fenders—rear rack provided (front rack and fenders sold separately)
    • Chromoly frame is double butted for added strength under heavy loads; tubes are thick at the ends, narrowing once toward the center
    • Long wheelbase and low center of gravity optimize stability and handling under heavy loads and high speeds
    • Shimano touring gruppo provides smooth shifting through a gear range designed to get bike, rider and equipment up and over mountain passes
    • Lightweight Mavic A319S rims and puncture-resistant Vittoria Randonneur tires have the durability needed to log long miles
    • Ritchey angle-adjustable stem allows a precise fit and Ritchey Biomax handlebars offer comfort over the miles
    • Keep the cadence you want—27 speeds let you adjust for the smallest changes in wind and terrain
    • Shimano brakes and brake levers provide reliable stopping power; cantilever configuration allows ample room for fenders front and back
    • Streamline Fizik Rondine saddle is anatomically contoured and padded for support and comfort during long days on the road
    • No fancy shoes required—platform pedals with toe clips accommodate many casual shoes (but we suggest supportive cycling shoes for long rides)
    • And just to make sure we thought of your every need, Randonee includes a spare spoke mounted on a seat stay
    • Remember, REI also sells all the accessories—ultralight tents, sleeping bags, stoves— you require for an epic cycling adventure

    Imported.
