Touring Bike Round-Up.png

At 718 Cyclery, we ride and sell a wide variety of Touring Bikes (for the purposes of this exercise, we are defining “Touring Bikes” as those with drop handlebars, bar-end shifters and a triple chainring).

We are looking to put these bikes through their respective paces, as well as provide simple clear data that a potential buyer can use for consideration and comparison.

We will be taking these bikes out on our upcoming Micro-Tour and Summer Tour adventures, and report back to add more information the the below entries.

Bikes will be listed alphabetically by Brand Name, and our hope is to add to this from year to year, maintaining an archived section as new models replace old.

One final criteria….these are all bikes that we have access to as a Dealer. Live Inventory Here. For more information, see our Touring Bike Comparison Chart
