A touring bike that hasn't been put together properly. Perhaps the chainset is in the wrong way 'round so it could be a BB shelling mishtake.

It's a marketing ploy to get lots of people to click on a link, it'll never work...

A touring bike is any bike that takes panniers or a trailer.......

I have toured on a Brompton, Airnimal, various recumbent bikes and trikes, my Thorn raven and on one short tour, a delivery bike!

Toru ; Japanese verb 'to steal'

A Toru-ing bike must be one ridden by robbers then.
