Firefly Bicycles: Ti Light Tourer Jan 10, 2013

This Firefly Ti tourer reinvents the term “light touring”. I see a compact front, mid-range rear and a radially-laced front wheel with fenders. While the die-hard touring nerds will object, I am digging it. See the full set at the Firefly Facebook!

    “I see a compact from” = compact front (crankset)? 

    • John Watson

      Yes, sorry

    Looks like a hot rando setup to me, minus the guaranteed-to-break-if-you-weigh-more-than-a-buck-forty-five Mavic wheels. Put a White Industries/Schmidt/A23 wheelset and lighting on there, and you have the perfect ultra- and rando-rig.

    smart looking bike. smarter still with the full size frame pump.

    • John Watson

      Right? Love it.

    The road pedals are a bit silly for anything labeled “touring”, even light. Walking around in road shoes on tour just isn’t going to happen.

      I toured from Portland to SF in road shoes. You aren’t walking, you’re touring. I got off the bike plenty too.

    loose the rim label and it’ll be perfect

    I’m waiting for the 20 page Grant Peterson review of this bike
