    Giant Innova

    I have an early 90's Giant Innova frame and fork that I'm wanting to build. I did a search and couldn't find anyone using this as a touring bike. It's a cromo frame and has plenty of eyelets for rack and fender in the rear, and two eyelets on each tip of the fork, it's just missing the mid-fork eyelets. It uses 700c wheels as well. Are there any other reasons this bike wouldn't be good for touring?

    i wouldn't think so. and a lot of 'low-rider' type racks come with provisions to add a mid-fork support bracket, so i wouldn't even worry about that.

    post up some pics!

    It's getting soda blasted at the moment. I'll post some pics as soon as I get it back.

    Okay, So I'm a little late on posting the pics, but here is the bike so far.

    Giant Innova Conversion


    I have a crank (46-36-26) that will do for the moment. Also, just ordered Silver Bar End shifters from Velo Orange. I have a B-17 on my Trek that will be transferred when I'm finished. And, I'll be ordering a new wheel set in the fall.

    Any recommendations on brake levers and front and rear derailers?
