That looks great Ton. Something has shifted in me, I seldom get enthusiastic about the latest mtb, but show me a touring bike and I go all wistful for country lanes, a thermos of tea and sausages in my saddle bag.
That's a substantial fence, very solid.
Those bikes look great all round. Very considered.
Can you report back when you've done some big adventures on it?

Just had a look at the spec on the Edingburgh cycles website. That's a lot of bike for the £££'s. Good choice
Must be fast coz it appears to have a parachute on the back to slow it down.
Nice bike there.
I've got one pretty much identical to that! Great bike, very happy with it.
However, it is my third Edinburgh Bike Co-op Revolution Country Explorer, I had two of the previous models (Al, rather than steel) and both ended up cracking at the seat-tube/bottom bracket junction, bizarrely when they both came up to the 8000 mile odometer reading. Anyways, the steel one is going strong at 4000+ miles and I keep checking it for cracks without any signs so fingers crossed.
Just got to put a Brooks saddle on it with a Carradice cotton duck saddle bag and it'll be good to go!
nice looking bike, I too thought Singular at first glance, so, post rtedundancy plans ?
Liking that. A lot. Just got one of these Spa Cycles saddles for my Fargo, hard as a hard thing right now but a good comfy B17 shape, but cheaper and they reckon will last longer. Only £35 so worth a punt.
