First Impressions Giant Toughroad SLR 1 Tourer or Bikepacker?
From the Taiwanese colossus Giant, here’s a 700cc gravel that looks well fit for touring. Equipped with wide tires, Shimano Tiagra drivetrain, and low gearing it seems a good match if you want something that could handle off-road stretches easily. It comes with Extras X-Defender Front and Rear Rack and it’s available in four different sizes.
The specimens listed in he various linked websites are slightly different, double check before purchasing. The hydraulic disk brakes may be a downside for touring, since they are proven unreliable, would be batter to swap them for mechanichal ones.
