The wheels have started to turn; well actually they are in place on my new touring bike. This year I wanted to move away from road touring, so I have put together a bike capable of handling some interesting off road tours. I will post some pictures soon and give a little bit more information on how it came together, and explain the component choices I made.
Just preparing for the trip over to Iceland later in the month this means the bike has been a big focus over the last few weeks. As well as bike it pays not to forget the body so I have been out the last few weeks increasing the mileage to avoid my legs screaming out in pain. Although I plan to cycles fewer miles than previously I want to enjoy the sites not have my head resting on the handle bars in agony.
