The Pinion Tourer is our classic world tour bike made of titanium. It consequently follows the philosophy of an almost maintenance-free travel bike with Pinion gear shift (and chain) or Gates belt drive. In order to simplify maintenance while traveling, our customer decided on a mechanical disc brake. The croissants on the handlebar end provide another possible hand position. With many hours on the bike, it is important to be able to make the contact points as flexible as possible. This bike was a forerunner for one of our current standard frames, the s Pinion Adventure Classic, because compared to previous Pinion touring bikes, thinner tubes were chosen for a more subtle appearance.
