It weighs in at 25.5lbs the way it is. Not bad for a steel touring bike.

I'm gonna build a badass mini DIY system


If you got any ideas, lemme know!

Either the description of a touring bike has changed since I was last into it (70's and 80's) or you plan on travelling really light.Are you going to install racks and panniers?

If you don't mind me asking, why did you go from MTB to road?
Just curious.

I like any kind of bike riding. I am starting to look for a new mountain bike frame too. Probably going to be an Intense Uzzi VPX or a Santa Cruz.

My goal is to have a bike for every purpose.

Nice choice in bikes.
A buddy of mine just picked up a Santa Cruz VP Free.
That thing is awesome!
Very light and capable DH/FR.

Educate me...

Why do touring bikes still use those wide canti-brakes? Is it for rack clearance? After switching to v-brakes years back I'll never return to the canti's if solely for the ease of set-up of the vee's. Just wondering.

Nice bike by the way. Is that Bianchi a track bike? We used to have one on a stand at a shop I worked at. Everyone liked to spin the crank back and forth, but they would forget it was direct drive. A few people got really close to getting their fingers stuck in the front sprocket. Oh... just noticed the knobby tires. Single speed cyclocross? Looks fun anyways. Cyclocrossing is crazy!

I would have used V brakes if it were not for the road type brake levers I'm using. They don't have the amount of pull needed for v brakes. DiaCompe does make a road brake lever though that works with V Brakes. So instead of using a weaker caliper(road bike type) brake that doesn't have large tire or fender clearance, Cantilevers are used.

I will bring folding 2.25" 29er tires to slap on if I have to do alot of dirt road riding on a specific part of the tour.

On the Bianchi, it's a single speed cyclocross bike. It has a Paul flip flop hub to run it fixie, but I don't like fixie.
