Ridgeback Journey 2012 Touring Bike


The Ridgeback Journey 2012 Touring Bike has a With a low centre of gravity and a classic drop bar riding position, a World series bike is as comfortable as it is stable. Long distance tourer, rugged commuter or just for day rides, a Ridgeback World series bike offers a cycling experience steeped in history but with the benefit of contemporary technology. Built to exacting specifications, frames are constructed to a size specific geometry in sizes 47-60cm to ensure stability and sure handling, even when fully loaded. Hand welded using Reynolds steel tubing; a World series Ridgeback provides a responsive, comfortable ride with the structural reliability essential for a traditional expedition bike. Designed for long periods in the saddle in remote locations, World series bikes are sensibly specified. Blackburn racks and bottle cages are fitted because of their proven touring heritage and a Blackburn frame fit pump completes the package. New to the range for 2012, The Journey utilises Shimanos Alfine 8 speed internal Hub gears, offering a system that requires minimal maintenance, clean lines, and importantly no risk of damaging your derailleur when you’re in remote spots.
