Ethical bike made from recycled tofu?
Current status report:
Latter side of fifty and feeling less than nifty.
Too many bikes on pegs and too few miles in the legs.

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.

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.
