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


  • 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
  • Specs and images are subject to change
