Have dropped handlebars and/or some bizarre frame shape? (Like the Salsa I saw today. Odd thing it was)
We go touring pretty much every year now. I'd love to be able to buy a touring bike to suit my needs off the peg, but nobody makes one. It's not a problem, I can and have built our own, but are we the only people with these requirements:
HYDRAULIC disc brakes. Good ones. I tow a trailer full of camping gear. Vee brakes, I know from scary experience, are woefully inadequate to stop me in the wet. This alone rules out drop bars as cable discs are pretty poor with road levers (I've set plenty of them up...) and the hydraulic road stuff is to expensive and lacks power anyway.
LOW gears. 22t granny ring. We're not rushing but we don't like pushing! I'm talking full MTB gearing. Not a road triple. 9sp is perfectly adequate and nice and cheap these days
Full rack AND mudguard mounts. Obviously. But you try mounting mudguards on a 440mm A to C fork. You have to make a bracket for it. And these forks don't have low rider mounts either, not that we use them but a touring bike should have them.
25.4mm handlebars. OS isn't necessary. Thinner is comfier and gives more space to screw stuff to.
TOUGH. Road based frames and wheels can go all wobbly when you whack 150kg of rider and luggage/trailer on them.
Both our touring bikes are 26in wheeled MTBS with 1.5 slicks, short upright stems, rigid steel forks, racks, 'guards etc. but I've had to faff with both to set them up. Making brackets for stuff, drilling holes in frames etc.
The closest bike I can find at a reasonable price is a Ridgeback X3. But that'll need the gearing lowering and a bracket made for the front mudguard.
Not really bothered TBH, but I find it odd, with all these different diverse bikes around that, as far as I can find, nobody makes an MTB based tourer. It's not rocket science, and surely there's not just me that wants one?
