Custom Bike - 6~8 weeks
Bike Repair - 1 week
The bike has been a dream to ride. The fit is perfect. I have no aches or pains from riding it all this distance. The Rohloff hub has been wonderful. I am so spoiled to it now. There have been so many other bike tourist who have complimented me on what a beautiful bike I am riding.
Although my route has been mostly on paved roads I have also spent several days travel on unpaved roads and trails. One off road mountain pass in particular was in such poor condition that a full suspension mountain bike was almost needed. However, the bike exceeded my expectations in the way it handled. This truly is an expedition level bike. I would not hesitate to ride this bike in third world countries.
