are only a few good
choices when buying a high grade touring bike
Windsor Tourist, Trek 520, Motobecane Gran Turismo, Co-Motion Nor'Wester, Rivendell Atlantis, and so on. These bikes are all high grade touring specific bikes that have many features in common - including price tags well over $1200.
You can do whatever you want with a Motobecane Gran Turismo, but if you're anything like the guys at Motobecane, you're gonna want to travel unfamiliar blue-line highways on this bicycle. Maybe ride it to your reunion.
Motobecane's product engineers designed this bike for comfortable loaded touring. The angles of the butted, cro-moly frame are relaxed for stability, the wheelbase is long, the clearances around the wheels sufficient for fat, sturdy tires and fenders.
The wheels are especially strong, each built with 36, 14-gauge spokes laced into strong, double-wall aluminum rims with comfy riding Kenda Euro Trek long-distance tires on them. These Vuelta Touring wheels are stress-relieved three times and hand built for lasting strength and covered by a damage replacement warranty. www.vueltaxrpwheels.com for details
The drivetrain, upgraded this year, is a durable mix of Shimano's smooth shifting road and mountain components. Its a wide-range 27-speed Shimano /Dura Ace /Deore XT setup, gears for the Smokies (up and down) and the desert southwest. The lightweight, cantilever brakes are powerful stoppers.
Gran Turismo comes with:
