T8 Tourer

 

I built this on a tight deadline to get away to Europe and ride from Budapest to Paris in Summer 2017. It was designed to be minimum cost for maximum function: re-used steel where possible, routing to use the Rohloff from T4, internal wiring from a dynamo hub to a USB charger in the custom bolt-on frame bag, permanent stainless front rack on the oversized steel forks.

The bike was flawless, making it to the top of Monte Zoncolan, the Stelvio and the Galibier to name a few.
