Want to world tour

Want to world tour 46 posts and 1 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Hello /n/ I assume this is the right place I haven't discussed this on any 4chan board before other than /out/ and never a full thread. but I want to tour the world on a bicycle. I'm looking at cycling from wherever I am in 2016 (likely Germany, possibly UK or cyprus) down to Australia. I'm someone who has always enjoyed cycling and have cycled pretty much my entire life. But I have never taken it... 'seriously' its always just been something that's there. I know how to perform basic maintenance but nothing major. I've done plenty of research and have the gear for my panniers pretty much nailed down. Currently I have a cheap town bike that I take on lengthy long weekend tours across Germany just to build the hype for the tour. I'm very much enjoying it and decided its something I want to dedicate a few years of my life to. The only thing I really need your help on is the bicycle itself. I've got the gearlist covered. I'm looking at a Tout Terrain Silkroad with a Rholoff Silver hub. But I am also looking at a Koga Randonneur 700c which would be a easy buy as its literally just down the road and they all speak good english. I live in Germany but do not speak German which is a bit of a issue! I'm leaning more towards the tout terrain silkroad. >http://www.en.tout-terrain.de/bicycles/silkroad/ >http://www.koga.com/en/bikes/trekking/collection/randonneur.htm?frame=H

Pull it out this spring and decide it's only marginally better than my steel frame mountain bike I pulled out of a scrap pile 4 years ago and put un-tacoed wheels on. Ask $400 for the 29er. >Gone in a day. Anyone else prefer older bikes to brand new ones?

Not sure if this is the right place to post this, but how do I into long distance running/endurance over miles and miles as a means to travel/explore shit? I'd like to be able to run like 50 fucking miles a day easily. Is this possible/achievable? How long would it take?

how important is a warranty, you can get 3000 dollar bikes with mostly the same specs as 1000 dollar bikes, but the 3000 dollar ones have a 3-5 year warranty, as opposed to a year maybe.

My father has sentimental attachment to an old bike from the 80's with downtube shifters and I would like to upgrade it to brifters for him. I was wondering if the brifters would be able to fit onto the handlebars, or would I need to replace the handlebars (and stem). Also, are indexed derailleurs universal in terms of fitting onto the seat tube and dropouts? I'll be cold-setting the 126mm dropout to fit the 130mm 8 speed wheel. pic unrelated

Hey lads, what can you tell me about this old road bike? http://orangecounty.craigslist.org/bik/4612522262.html The owner doesn't seem to know a lot about bikes. Neither do I. What should I be looking for while shopping for these kind of used vintage bikes, price range ~250?

Hope you're all doing well my fi/n/e friends, About a year ago I got a Cyclocross bike after a long (4 month) assessment as to what bike I wanted, it was my first bike, and I love it a lot, always will. I initially was going to spend about 100-200 bucks on a bike, but ended up shelling out about 1200 for a really good bike. I come to you all in need of some advice on what bike to get next, and it's something that I know most of you will fucking hate, but I can't help it, and I'll explain to you why I have to do this. I am in need of two fixed gear cycles, one for my fiancee, and one for myself. I have been using my cyclocross bike while she is using her (really fucking beat up and about to die) town bike. I coast so fucking efficiently on my CX bike, while she is left behind still trying to keep up. I found a decent entry bike for her, but she didn't like the color scheme of it, which I guess is understandable but it fucking broke my heart, because it was decent. I really want a fixie for fitness and fun purposes... not a large investment, but something that I can add to over time. I was either going to go with a Critical (http://www.criticalcycles.com/) or Vilano (http://www.vilanobikes.com/fixed-gear-bikes/vilano-fixiex-fixed-gear-single-speed-urban-fixie-bike-1.html), if you guys have any recommendations within that price range, I'm open to it. But what she ended up wanting was either a brown seat/handlebar scheme with a cream frame (critical) or brown seat handlebar scheme with a baby blue frame. So it has to look straight up vintage fucking hipster etsy tier shit for her to like it. I am not so picky, as long as it is a good bike.

My uncle just gave me his old bike, really happy with it [especially that it was free] I just wanted to know if it was technically any good or not?
