Hard-wearing, impervious to punctures and with enough tread to tackle pretty much anything, the XR was the default choice for anyone doing anything interesting on a touring bike.

With others — just as with your favourite pair of shoes — you enter into a kind of symbiotic relationship.

A minority of people, however, discover they do not get on with the leather Brooks, whether for physical or ideological reasons.

Padded shorts may help, as may gel saddles or covers , but there are no shortcuts around trial and error. Getting the combination right is more art than science.

This is why spending time trying out lots of options at a local bike shop comes so highly recommended, and why many bike shops offer like-for-like replacements of cockpit components at no extra charge.

Newcomers to cycling often gravitate towards flat bars or riser bars , which offer a more upright riding position; less efficient but more comfortable.

Almost all touring bikes of continental European origin are set up in this way. Flat and riser bars put the hands and arms in a more natural position for most riders, and longer bars offer more leverage over heavy front panniers or handlebar bags.

Some people like butterfly bars for the variety of handlebar positions on offer, though others dislike their lack of rigidity and find bar-ends offer the same benefits without the compromises.

After several hours of trial and error, my bike was fitted with a mm flat bar and an 85mm stem with a degree rise. Did I mention a substantial test riding period is recommended when getting a bike tweaked to perfection for expedition touring?

Now, when Richard consults with a new customer, he has them try out many different options. Gear shifters and brake levers sometimes need to be removed during maintenance and repairs, and lock-on grips really help in this situation.

You should expect grips to wear out over time. Cheap grips and those made of softer rubber might feel more comfortable to start with but usually wear out faster.

Prolong the life of your grips by wearing riding mitts or gloves. On drop bars, good cork or leather grip tape should last for many thousands of miles — make sure you install it correctly.

Richard added a pair of his own low-profile rubberised anatomical bar ends, which plugged into the ends of the handlebars. You could bring a service kit and several sets of new bearings, but buying good quality flat pedals in the first place is a better choice for minimising maintenance.

Even so, expect pedals to need servicing on your way round the world. Thankfully, 15mm is the worldwide standard thread for pedals, so finding compatible tools and parts is unlikely to be an issue.

If the tubing snaps at a stress point, a weld fails, or a bolt shears off, your worldly possessions are going to be bouncing around without support.

The likelihood of such a breakage increases with time and miles, with additional weight, and with the roughness of road surfaces.

Under normal expedition use, the chances of them breaking are practically zero, except in an unlucky accident — when the steel construction will make it possible to get them temporarily repaired by welders the world over.

The Cargo has been in production, all but unchanged, since Also popular is the Tubus Logo , which is designed for bikes with shorter wheelbases eg: gravel bikes or old-school mountain bikes where additional heel clearance is needed.

I previously fitted one to my Kona Explosif for that exact reason. My rationale here was similar: Tubus have a second-to-none reputation, and the Tara is their longest-standing lowrider compatible with all the most popular pannier models.

And there we have it. For convenience, here is the complete specification of the original bike build described above and illustrated in the photos:.

To see the updated specification of the Oxford Bike Works Expedition , which is based on this design, check out the Oxford Bike Works website.

Bicycles are really pretty simple. This may negate what you will save by doing it yourself, but a good set of tools should last a lifetime.

Allow several days to accomplish the build, swap parts, and fettle. Professional touring bike builders and assemblers also know a few additional tricks of the trade which may be omitted in factory-built bikes.

These touches come from an understanding of common long- term touring ailments. These are delicate touches. A professional builder will include many more as part of the individual service you can expect — one of the many reasons you might choose to have a bike like this custom-built for you if you like the idea of a personalised specification but lack the experience to put it together yourself.

I hope that this article has comprehensively covered the process of designing and building a touring bike for a round-the-world cycling expedition.

Yes — I will reiterate this advice until the day I die — you do not need bags of money and top-end gear to go cycle touring.

With regards to the pedals, Tom, you know you can get SPD shoes with sunken cleats? Great advise there!

I esp. Plus the choice of plain gauge spokes for one side of rear wheel. Have you seen these re: protecting the saddle and wheels?

I imagine for those taking electronic gadgets you would recommend a son hub as the most proven? Great to know v brakes rims last that long on tours.

On the frame, I was always told that is best, at dints and strength? Great article. Choices in work prevents me touring long distance at the mo.

Despite that I like reliable workhorse bikes anyway! We have Surley and Co-motion both ends of the money spectrum for touring bikes.

I think there is great merit to the DIY bike with Deore and parsing out parts. One tip from my side. Very simple, but extremely effective to protect your trousers, from own experience.

Also, the lower range of Shimano comes with steel chainrings and not the butter soft aluminium rings of the higher models. Quite long lasting….

The Tara uses 14mm tubes in the hoop 10mm in the straight bar. Some panniers such as Ortlieb will require a larger lower clamp than supplied. All good advice.

I rode Marathon Plus for about 3 or 4 years on my old Schwinn mountain bike and try as I might I could not wear out those tires no matter what, trail or road.

Maybe Marathon Extreme pricey or the mondials you suggested. Ergon grips are great. I do find the cork to be a fairly soft material and not as durable as the rubber versions.

Got some nice gouges in mine! Beautiful bike and thoughtful build! Thank you very much for sharing the detailed parts list and your thought process.

I know that 26 in. That said, do you think 29 in. Or their lower availability and larger packing size will be a problem? Hello thank you for your very accurate description of all the bike details.

Thank you very much Tommaso. Just had the same issue. Installed bottom bracket to find the lowest chainring on the chainwheel is too close to the frame.

I think the bottom bracket is too short. WIll be starting again. Very detailed guide and useful tips. Thank you so much for the post.

Looks really good. And if you do just a little bit of research you will understand. But unlike the body parts in the bike you have the choice.

It works the same for back and front derailleur? Shoud i use a Shimano ultegra ? Or i can use the microshift? Thankyou so much, Sory my english.

Until last year it was definitely derailleur compatible. I see that the Shimano Deore cranksets are set up for the external bearing bottom brackets, such as the Hollowtech 2.

Hey Scott, good luck with the tour! I started out with a very second hand square bracket from a second hand bike in Australia that was apparently found in a ditch when I did a 10, mile ride through Asia a few years ago.

The square bracket died after a few thousand miles and was replaced by a hollowtech. But then that broke quite quickly too. And Tom, thanks for the enormous trove of information.

Would be good to have an update review? I have been looking for a new bike to build for some time and have got the frame list down to , surly troll, thorn Sherpa and Oxford bike works.

How does Richards frame set compare? What drew me to the bike was that it was ridden across Canada after its original purchase with no appreciable ware other than its owner discarded it for the next 30 years in his garage.

Hi Tom , I see your running a 9 speed front deraileur on that bike but with everything else 8 speed. Hows that working out?

Amazing article,I love it. I have built my own adventure bike more or less based on the same logic before I read this. It rolls fantastic : pavement, gravel roads, forest trails….

While your emphasis on simplicity and durability sounds right for my adventure, my trip may differ from others in a couple respects.

First, my trip will be extremely remote, so it is not a question of finding a bike shop with compatible spares — there will be no bike shop.

I need to be entirely self-sufficient. But they are real roads suitable for normal passenger cars.

Any additional thoughts you might have on bike design for such a trip would be most appreciated. In return I will share my wisdom on merino wool.

At least on my torso. I have one question. It seems to me you use quite a lot of spacers to rise your handlebar. Is that an issue?

His bike just have a longer steerer tube on the fork, so the handlebar can be set up higher. For touring, you need the handlebar at about the same level as your saddle as you need to be comfortable during many hours on the bike if you check the Surly LHT, it also has a lot of spacers.

Still, no matter what kind of bike, I always prefer to have a longer steerer tube and many spacers. Ah, yes, makes sense.

I always thought frame manufactures use longer steering tubes and move them up slightly to make excessive spacer usage unnecessary.

Hey Tom, you got a Chris King headset but a un bottom bracket? I would have expected another King or a skf bas Hi Tom, I just ordered a new mountain bike, my first new bike in 28 years, and have been wondering what to do with my old one.

I was amazed to stumble across your website and find my bike is incredibly similar to yours! I fitted Shimano SLX shifters 3x9 , but still have the old friction ones.

I use the bike for commuting, but now I realise I should be touring round the world on it instead! All your suggestions and recommendations have been being regurgitated for a while now, perhaps decades.

I started looking at assembling an expedition grade tour bike in I read everything I could find on the subject. You tout reliability as the primary factor in touring, and I agree that no one wants to break down.

But technology and reliability have advanced to the point that not only front suspensions but also rear suspensions should be standard on the Ultimate Expedition Tour Bike UETB.

For years disc-brakes were shunned by riders and now without a doubt are far superior performing and more reliable.
