    Touring Frame/Complete with Disc Brakes?

    What are my options? I currently ride a Tourist as a heavy commuter/touring bike, but would like to have disc brakes for my next build.
    Best regards - steve

    touring is what you do , the bike just lets you do it on a bike .

    I like my Bike Friday Pocket Llama , it has disc brakes , and packs down into a suitcase size,

    to use Airplanes and other public transport to get to places you want to tour through ..

    They are made to order in Oregon .. and already popular around the world .. touring the world.

    I built one around a Nashbar mountain bike frame and fork,I LOVE IT!.....Frame and fork can be had for $150.00 if you pay attention to their site for sales and such.

    Here are some possibilities. I'd have to look for my old posts to see which ones I was looking at months ago. Anyway, for your viewing pleasure...
    Giant Anyroad 1

    Giant Revolt 1
    http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-ca/...specifications

    You can click to see the more expensive models but one of the advantages here is you have a sloping top tube which means if you go up a slippery incline and fall on your feet, you may not bang your crotch.

    EDIT: I found a link to some bikes...

    In general, I find the Trek CrossRip and Specialized TriCross interesting as well.
