Let Me Help You Find The Perfect Touring Bicycle

Touring Bicycles

The bicycle you select for your travels is the most important piece of bicycle touring gear you’ll ever need to purchase. Pick the right bicycle for your trip and you’ll be sure to come home with those wonderful bicycle touring memories you’ve been dreaming about. But pick the wrong bicycle and your trip could be over before it’s even had a chance to begin.

  • The dream you are likely having involves going on a bicycle tour and having memorable experiences you will carry with you for the rest of your life. Experiences so incredible you will tell your friends and family about them for years to come.
  • The reality, however, might be that you never complete your bike tour, because you picked the wrong touring bicycle – a bicycle that wasn’t built for the kind of bike tour you were participating in – and you were unable to return home with those magical memories you were hoping for.

TheEssential3daaaWARNING: What many first-time bicycle tourists don’t realize is that there are several different types of bicycles made for bicycle touring. There are touring bicycles made for short day trips around your home; fast, sporty touring bicycles made for racing and light touring; and an entire separate breed of touring bicycles made to carry you and your gear all the way around the world. Plus, there are bicycles made for a whole bunch of different types of cycling (and aren’t really designed for bicycle touring at all).

Touring Bicycle Frame Materials

3 – Frame Materials

The frame of your bicycle is the backbone of your machine. The components (i.e. derailleurs, shifters, brakes, etc.) can be changed and upgraded over time, but a weak, heavy or uncomfortably stiff frame will remain with you no matter what. Because of the weight that touring bikes need to carry and the amount of time you will spend on the bike while traveling, the material used in making the frame of your touring bicycle is extremely important.

Touring Bicycle Wheels, Tires and Tubes

4 – Wheels, Tires & Tubes

In much the same way that there are different types of metals used in touring bicycle frames, there are also different types of wheels, tires and tubes used on the various types of touring bicycles. What you will tend to see is that touring bicycles of different types generally use the same or similar size wheels and tires. So, you want to make sure that the wheels on your touring bicycle fit the type of bicycle touring you wish to be conducting.

Touring Bicycle Racks and Panniers

9 – Racks & Panniers

A traditional touring bicycle carries most of its clothing, gear, food and equipment in a set of panniers, which attach to the bicycle with the use of either front and/or rear racks. The benefit of bicycle panniers is that they are easy to pack, relatively easy to access on a daily basis, and they allow you to ride the bike in a normal way once you get used to the extra weight that you are carrying.

Bicycle Touring Trailer

10 – Trailers

Another way you might choose to carry the gear you need for your bicycle tour is to transport that equipment with a trailer. A trailer is a large, one or two wheeled device that you pull behind your bicycle – and the trailer usually attaches to your bicycle at the rear axle or from your seat post. Trailers are a great option for individuals who are totally new to bicycle touring.
