Raleigh's Port Townsend is all about the journey, so let the miles roll by in style on this retro-inspired, steel-framed steed. Reynolds 520 butted steel has the inherent ability to damp road vibration; this bike is smooth and comfortable no matter how long you're in the saddle. Grippy Kenda tires pair up beautifully with the tough Weinmann wheels, while custom metal fenders keep you dry and happy. Shimano's wide-range Sora drivetrain provides 18 hill-topping gears. A faux-leather Raleigh saddle and cork grips complete the classic look and since sometimes you need to carry extra gear along, you get a front rack to carry things in style.
The road less traveled was meant to be seen from the saddle of Salsa's globe-trotting Vaya 2. Salsa's Classico double-butted chromoly tubing offers a great ride whether you're head down to the store, or on a cross-country trek. The frame is designed around a heads-up, all-day-comfortable touring geometry, has clearance for 42mm tires, and is dressed up with mounting points for front and rear racks, fenders, and a bevy of water bottles (all sold separately). Schwalbe's Marathon Plus Tour tires have a deservedly high reputation for durability among the touring cognoscenti, and when they're wrapped around a pair off burly, no-nonsense Salsa/Sun wheels you're prepared to ride wherever your heart desires. When it comes to reliability and smooth, easy shifting performance it's hard to beat Shimano's 105 drivetrain, and this 30-speed setup pairs that reputation with a wide-as-the-Great-Plains gear range to ensure you and your gear reach your camp at the end of the day. All-conditions stopping power is key when you're on the road, and a pair of Avid BB7S mechanical disc brakes ensure that you have total control at hand. Salsa's own stem and bar, Truvativ seatpost, and WTB saddle ramp up rider comfort during long days in the saddle so you can focus on the ride, and not your equipment.
