Here is my 1972 Raleigh Superbe and my 1971 Raleigh Twenty both which get used for tours. I actually can tour on any of my bikes, I just choose the one that strikes my fancy and works for the trip I am on. I don't have any loaded pictures for some reason. Most recent trip was a S24O down near Charleston, SC. I rode the Twenty about 35 miles to a campground spent the night and rode back the next day.


Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(

ISO: A late 1980's Giant Iguana MTB frameset (or complete bike) 23" Red with yellow graphics.

You can go to Rohloff.de, there is a builders list of framebuilders , there.
N.H. based Peter White imports and retails German Tout Terrain frames from Germany.

Eccentric BB for chain tension, is a common tandem frame component
to tension crossover timing chains..
CoMotion in Oregon builds Rohloff ready frames , as does UK Thorn bicycles

another solution is a sliding dropout on the back, the axle and disc mounts slide together
so stay in adjustment relative to each other

if you are retrofitting a frame with a disc mount reaction fork piece OEM 2 slides over the lower bolt
of an ISO disc mount, and a chaintensioner takes up slack .

I got this a Koga WTR '04 used, 3rd hand. low mileage https://www.cyclofiend.com/working/20...clark1008.html
added the Schmidt generator hub.
there is a signature program at Koga Now, a menu of component choices is built up in NL factory
then shipped to dealers, but there are few in the US,
But you could have a meeting abroad with one near the Airport
say Shiphol AMS, in Holland.

Here is a TT silkroad soon after I built it.

The bike now has a shorter stem, a nitto front rack for Ostrich Handlebar bag, and a Hebie 'chainglider' full chaincase (which is amazing, btw).
