i've really enjoyed your blog, and was very helpful when i was choosing my own touring bike and components. ordered a world tour about a month ago and its due to arrive, hopefully late this week but probably more like next week. i'm pretty excited about building it up and test riding it, so just trying to check i haven't missed anything. so a quick question for you, did the bike come fitted with hangers for the canti brakes? and were they any good? thank you

Hi Archie

Glad I could have been of help, that's what this blog is all about really. The bike comes with a rear hanger as part of the frame, which is the best possible mount for a rear canti, but you will need a front hanger, I went with a silver Tektro hanger that I bought from Velorution in London. You may have to hunt around for one as they are not very common in 1", let me know if you get stuck. Don't forget the other little parts like downtube cable adjusters, donut rings for cables etc.

Let me know if there is anything else I can help with, I am sure you will love your World Tour, it's a great bike!

Best - Dan
