A touring bike by definition, is designed to handle bicycle touring. To make the bikes sufficiently robust, comfortable and capable of carrying heavy loads, special features may include a long wheelbase (for comfort and to avoid pedal-to-luggage conflicts), frame materials that favor flexibility over rigidity (for comfort), heavy duty wheels (for load capacity), and multiple mounting points (for racks, fenders, etc.).
These features can also make for a really good heavy duty commuter option or even with the more comfortable geometries work well for longer ‘fondo’ style rides.
2018 MASI GIRAMONDO 27.5/650.
2018 MASI GIRAMONDO 700c.
Same great double butted chromoly frame and fork combo as last year, this is the more traditional 700c wheel size option (will still take a 650/27.5 wheel) great for regular touring, adventure touring, bike packing and comes with 700x40c tires so you can even explore the path less traveled!
This model comes with the more traditional handlebar and stem set up. 3×10 Shimano Deore cranks and derailleurs, all the rack and fender options you could need.
Kitted out with the awesome TUBUS front and rear racks!
