B'Twin Riverside RT 520 Touring Bike
The Riverside Touring 520 is ideal for your first forays into bike touring with a bike that's designed to explore.
It has a sturdy frame and components for adventures both near and far.
A Sturdy, Comfortable Frame: We have designed this triple-butted aluminium frame for maximum durability, sturdiness and comfort. More than 500,000 km of testing under its belt on all continents and in all weather conditions. Internal cable routing.
33 mounts on the frame and fork to attach all your accessories and pannier racks. Compatible with all pannier racks. Removable rear derailleur hanger.
Pannier Rack: We have developed a uniquely robust rear pannier rack to carry your belongings. Six bolts attach it to the rear stays, allowing you to carry up to 40 kg of baggage or a child seat. This unique design choice also avoids the problem commonly encountered by bikepackers of the screws shearing.

Ergonomic grips with integrated bar ends.
Stem: Size S: 60 mm / Size M: 80 mm / Size L: 100 mm / Size XL: 110 mm.

City Bikes are a decent investment for urban riders - suitable for roads, parks and canal paths, as well as light excursions off-road, they're a good all rounder. Alternatively if you're more serious about speed, I've got quite a few Road Bikes listed, and for the dirt junkies amongst us, a decent selection of Mountain bikes too.
