My Light Touring Bike - evolved



I thought you might like to get a look at my light-touring bike in its latest evolution. We leave in five days for a week long credit card tour of about 500 km. The bike is a Specialized Sirrus Comp (2008) that started life as a aluminum-carbon flat bar roadbike. Every year I made further changes as I realised where my interests lay. This past winter I changed the drivetrain to Deore XT with 11-34 triple gearing.
