Bobbin Scout Hybrid Bike [+/-] $1,000

Bobbin touring cheap under 1000

Another steel option: the Scout is a retro racing-tourer with bags of style and character. If you’ve been seeking a fantasy on wheels, step this way. A Cro-mo steel frame, bar-end shifters, cantilever brakes and hammered mudguards, Scout is a machine to get carried away on. Unfortunately, it comes with a limited 16-speed drivetrain, but can always be upgraded for more demanding tasks.

The lugged steel frame is ready to fit a carrier rack and bottle cages for all your expedition requirements while the rat trap pedals are toeclip-ready.

The Bobbin Scout is a retro-tourer best suited for light touring and bikepacking
