Rikulau Mundo M3 Touring Bike

Rikulau Mundo M3 Touring Bike

For a touring bike, frame stability, comfort, and easy to maintain are essential.

M3 tube set was originally designed for marine environment, therefore, it is basically rust-free and easy to be taken care of. The tensile strength can reach 1100MPa, so, a frame built with M3 is eligible to be a stiff and, yet, comfortable product. For long- distance travel, unstable tail caused by high load and soft rear triangle is the least a rider would like to experience in a high speed descend.

Furthermore, increased head tube releases pressure on the rider’s back, and longer chainstay makes loading large size pannier bags possible.

M3 touring bike has been road tested and highly regarded by cycle touring experts from Taiwan and Malaysia. It is a companion to be seriously considered in your next long distance bike tour.

Features

  1. Standard head tube and BSA bottom bracket design for easy maintenance
  2. Heavy duty wheelset built with DT Swiss hub, spoke, and niobium rim
  3. Longer chainstayfor large size pannier bags
  4. Two frame versions for 700 C or 26 inch wheelset
