Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I have a Giant Butte. It's been converted to a dropbar touring bike.



Here's another Giant bicycle I've converted to a dropbar touring bike.



Cheers

^Those look like very capable touring bikes, nice modifications! 👍👍
I'd like to do the opposite conversion on my OCR 3 road bike.
Now that I am old, I've found an upright position more comfortable and am considering converting the cockpit to flat bars.

I'm not seeing any huge bikes in this thread. They all look normal sized to me.

You don't realise that 950c is the standard wheel size for Giant.
