Rafaelas new bike!

Yesterday evening I finally went to pick up my new bike, it is a Toutterrain Silkroad, which is specialised for bicycle touring. With this bike you can go online and choose which features you want, so you can really personalise it. The frame is made of CrMo- Steel and the carriers (frame around the wheel to mount panniers) is made of stainless steel, I have those both around the front and back wheels. My bike has disc brakes and derailleur gears with 30 gears as well as  handlebar locking, so when you have a heavy load the handle doesn’t swing to the side which causes the bike to fall. My favourite part of the bike is the “Dynamo” which will power my light when I’m riding and also has a USB input in the middle of the handlebar, so when Matt has low battery on his phone I can charge him for charging it. 😉

So far I am really happy with it! 🙂
