advice on buying a bike for round the world cycle??
Hi, I am going on a 24,000km cycle around the world and am not sure which bike to get.. im around 5.10 and 70kg and ideal bike size is 53cm frame.
i am thinking of getting one of these 3 bikes:
In addtion to buying these i will put on a pannier on the front and replace the handlebars with butterfly bars. These three bikes are hybrid style.. have lower back problems so i want to stay away from road bikes and drop bars.I am not pushes about time and am only planning on cycling around 70km a day for 6 days a week. i am planning on doing this rate in an uprigth body position rather than been bent forward on the drops as this could hurt my back.
I will be cycling on all sorts of roads including the pamir highway so I will need 40mm tyres. i wont be carrying too much gear either.
could someone please help me on a bike to pick? Will any of these three bikes do the job? Im not fussed about gears or brakes really as long as they work im happy
