    Avaghon X29 touring bicycle

    Real steel from Dutch bicycle manufacturer Avaghon, handbuild and customized at Bike4travel in Rotterdam.

    The X-29 is a real allrounder. Whether you’d like to go bikepacking, do a fully loaded tour or speed down a mountainbike track, the X-29 has all the characteristics to make every situation a success.

    Reliable high quality steel with the well-known Avaghon triangle built in the strong and stiff frame. The X-29 is a trekkingbike with a bit more mountainbike capabilities. Off road tracks are no problem for this bicycle. And that’s exactly what we like!

    Features:

    Rohloff hub Shimano XT hydraulic brakes

    Tubus Logo Expedition rear rack

    Gates Carbon belt Schwalbe Almotion 50-622 tires

    Tubus Tara Lowrider front

     

    Currently we rode about 5500 kilometers on the Avaghon X29 and are very pleased with its riding capabilities, frame stiffness AND looks! We’ve done fully loaded on- and offroad trips, climbed steep mountain passes and rode easy, flat tracks in the Netherlands. In about 1500 kilometers we will write a full review, but here’s a heads up: we love the Avaghon X29!

  • This is the moment you’ve all been waiting for! Meet our new buddies for the rest of our bicycle touring adventure: the Santos Travelmaster 2.9 with Pinion and Gates Belt Drive! No, it was definately not time to send the Travel Lites to the bicycle graveyard, they could easily keep going, but these new Pinion babies need a ride on tougher ground. And we have the honor to be one of the first (if not the first) world cyclists to show them around the globe.

  • The Santos Travel Lite has been our loyal friend since the beginning of our bicycle touring adventure; more than 20.000 kilometers ago. We’ve abused ‘Wilson’ and ‘Storm’ badly! But, the Santos bicycles didn’t even blink! They are strong, stiff and comfortable and MAINTENANCE FREE. Watch this video to see where the Travel Lites have been and what they had to endure.
