    Giant Long Journey

    I was in Phnom Penh last week and saw two touring bikes chained up overnight. One was a stock Kona Sutra. The other one was fascinating: drop handlebars, cross/interrupter brakes, and front suspension - don't think I've ever seen a bike with drops and suspension in the flesh before. The frame seemed to be labelled "Giant Long Journey". It was dark, so maybe I missed some other useful identifying details. The wheels were Alex, and the tyres said "Security" (I think) one them, but that was about all I could make out. Cantilevers front and back. Dura-ace STI shifters.

    So, anyone know anything about this bike? Google is not giving me instant gratification.
    Specialized Tricross Sport 2009. Giant Yukon FX 3.

    Ah, I had the name wrong, I knew it had to be something like that.

    Now, this one looks closer: drop bars, cross levers, same wheelset. Looks like they upgraded the shifters and maybe drivetrain though. Interestingly, there seems to be three levels of this bike, with the Great Journey 1 using 700C, and the other two 26". The #3 doesn't have drops.

    Googling around there's not all that much on it, seems to be sold only in a few Asian countries. Was curious whether I'd come across the owner anywhere.
