The French touring bike or Randonneur is the type of bike which, for me, symbolizes the true essence of cycling. These are ultra high-performance bicycles, designed to be comfy enough to ride all day, handle relatively light weight, and last for years. These bicycles are traditionally lugged and silver brazed steel. Bring out your inner constructeur and design the bike of your dreams.
"I've ridden a lot of bikes in my day and each had something I liked about them. This is
the first bike I've had that fused all little things I liked from other bikes together." --Tahn
