If you are planning on going touring then look no further. This bad boy is ready to take you.
Nigel Dean, was a racer turned builder, based around St.Albans area, and he built this lean, mean touring machine.
This has been built with distance, weight and comfort in mind.
The frame has been constructed using Reynolds 531 Supertourist tubing- nice and sturdy under load.
It’s fitted with a Shimano Deore LX 21 speed groupset and hubs (top of the range back in their day), cantilever breaks (offer better stopping power when under load and offer clearance for wider tyres), quick release skewers, ergo comfort grips, fitted with mudguards and rack, Continental touring tyres and piece de resistance a black Brooks leather sprung touring saddle.
This bike is literally fitted and read to tour, all you need is a set of pannier bags, a map and a head full of ideas and empty of work thoughts.
20.5″(53 cm) toptube, 19.5″ (49 cm) downtube.
£650, fully serviced (and a free water bottle to boot).
