The Transcontinental 2014 -Bike Suggestions?
The recent new story on road.cc on epic cycling really caught my imagination and sense of adventure as I was looking for something 'big' to work towards.
I ran it past the other half and unexpectedly I got the green light, so im now entered in the 2014 Transcontinental. Training and planning has begun in earnest but looking at my current stable i don't feel like i have anything suitable:-
Giant TCR Advanced SL0
Blue Triad SL LE
Planet X Kaffenback 2
The kaffenback is probably the closest out of the current crop but it weighs a ton, great for training, but dont fancy hauling it up and over the alps whilst carrying everything else i need.
Any suggestions / ideas on a frameset for this kind of ride?
Current criteria are:-
disc compatible if possible?
