With this article we try to fill a gap which hits a wrong note on a web-site about bicycle tourism! So far I haven’t found the “courage” to deal with this subject, especially because I am aware of its sensitivity and subjectivity. The question, however, is among the most frequent among cycling travelers and hereafter I will try to answer to it: how to choose the right touring bike?

Seeing so many requests for tips about buying a touring bicycle we have received this summer, I decided to make a brief (and not exhaustive) online search to figure out which touring bicycles are more popular on the market and which make bike travelers more satisfied. Following I will recommend you 5 models that seem to give satisfaction to their owners. Personally, I have always traveled with a MTB by choice and even from necessity and in the last bike trips, in Norway, in North-Eastern Italy and during our ten months in South-East Asia we have ridden a Viner VR 5.5.
