Three months on the Kona Sutra LTD

One of the most frequent questions we are asked about our trips is, “What bike should I buy?” The answer of course depends on the rider, and the tour in question. We’ve written before about choosing a touring bike in general, and specifically for the Tour d’Afrique.

This time, instead of writing about how to choose a bike, I decided to write a review of the bike I actually bought for the Trans-Oceania, the 2016 Kona Sutra LTD.

“I really appreciated the versatility of all the mounting options on the Sutra LTD. In the Australian Outback, I actually made use of the extra mounts for water, sometimes going through four or five bottles in a day.”

“My trip ended with ten days of loaded riding. But that’s why they still make triples – in the small chainring, and 36t rear cog, I was able to ride up some ridiculously steep gravel trails and double track, switchbacks and all.”

Special thanks to Sweet Pete’s Bike Shop for their assistance building this bike.
