Specs: Aluminium frame, 700cc / 28″ tires, Shimano components, butterfly handlebars, racks and mudguards.
Upsides: Ready to roll – it comes with everything you need for loaded touring. Lighter than most tourers because of the aluminium frame.
Downsides: For big expeditions in remote areas, the aluminium frame isn’t ideal and the racks would probably need upgrading.
