Fantasy Touring Bike
My touring bike is starting to creak and groan and show its age (its about 20 years old at the frame, the Brooks saddle is much older). It was originally a Marin Sausalito hybrid but only the bars stem and frame remain.
So the question is if you were building a fantasy touring bike from scratch what would you go for?
I am thinking Ti frame, disc brakes, carbon forks and nice dynamo hub. But it all seems a bit niche to find in a normal bike shop, so help me with frame suggestions, components to build it up - the more exotic the better - I want to build something really nice then ride it across Europe first then the USA.
