Kyrgyzstan: what type of bicycle is preferable?

Postby Graywak » Sat Nov 18, 2017 12:48 pm

Which type of bike would be suitable for a unsupported 17000km bike race in Kyrgyzstan? Most be completed in less than 14days.

I'm pretty sure no type of bicycle can cover 17,000 km in less than 14 days. (Heck, it would be difficult even on a motorcycle.)

A touring bike would seem to be what you're after, though.
