Down in price by £75 compared with the 2003 model, our Edinburgh Country touring bike is now better value than ever.
- Proven Reynolds Chromoly steel frame.
- Compact geometry makes the frame laterally flex free - a desirable attribute in a touring bike built to carry loads.
- Reliable Shimano gears and hubs.
- Good wheels built on Shimano hubs for reliability.
- Grippy street tyres man enough for dodgy-surfaced footpaths.
- Tektro cantilever brakes made specially for tourers with drop bars (they actually work better with drop bar brake levers than most Shimano cantilevers).
- Full mudguards.
- Alloy luggage rack.
- 'The benchmark for affordable tourers.
- 'With the panniers full to bursting the Country handles well in all departments, tyres secure on the tarmac, with no hint of shimmying through the perfectly aligned compact Reynolds frame.
- 'Brazed-on spoke holders on the left hand chainstay show its serious touring aspirations.
- 'Sora shifting is consistently true.
- If you want a touring bike but don't have much cash, the Edinburgh Country is a great place to start. Another winner from north of the border.
