    Ton, did you ever find a touring frame? What size were you after?

    Ton – the Stonerpomps on tour.

    BTW if you're quick theres an XL kaffenback (effectively 135mm geared version of the pomp) in the corner sale for £99 at PX
    great versatile touring frame IMO.

    My touring bike is… borked. 🙁

    It had a good innings though. 2x cross seasons, the HONC, the South Downs Way (laden), London to Brighton Off-road, Bristol to London, a few Audaxes, and daily hacks into town.. and that's not counting its two previous owners.

    I wonder…

    Just bought a Boardman hybrid, will that be a good touring bike y'think or will i need a triple chainset?

    Bike will take racks etc.

    Muddydwarf, it depends a lot on what style of tourer you are. If you're a kitchen sink type who takes everything they need to be self-sufficient and prefers to plod along slowly, a triple would suit. If you're reasonably fit, not too heavily laden and prepared to give it some grunt, a compact is fine even in fairly hilly areas.

    kona Sutra somewhere in oirland by a loch/lough/lake

    In Hornsea at the end of the TPT:

    Now repainted as it had a few battlescars as it also gets used as a commuter

    Great bike, very stable both loaded and unloaded, comfortable to ride but wieghs a ton. It is probably the bike I would keep if I had to bring the fleet down to 1. Also fits up to 42c tyres.

    I use a surly lht for most tours. A surly big dummy for fully loaded tipi tours. And really like the new salsa vaya. I saw one at a trade show last week and they are disc'd and lovely.

    Not into touring myself yet. Thats for 2011 for me.

    When i do it though it may be a Cross Check and Mastercard or Long Haul Trucker.

    will decide next year.

    Did somebody mention Orbit Gold Medals? Mine is an '85 vintage, been refinished a couple of times and is now like Triggers Broom. Just the frame, bars and chainset are original:

    P.s. Sorry about the location, though it is a nice area 🙂

    The Sutra

    As above – stable, flexible, but a bit lardy.

    A replacement is already "in progress"
