Unboxing the Thorn Nomad bike

Anyone that knows me, or has been following  my travel blog for a while, will know that I have been looking to buy a new expedition bicycle for quite some time.

A month ago, I made the journey down to Thorn Cycles in Bridgwater, where I chose the one that I wanted built, and a few days ago, it was delivered to me.

As it happened, this week I was incredibly busy, and as much as i would have liked to have put it together straight away, things didn't work out for me. Still, patience is a virtue, or so they say, and after a couple of days, I go around to it.

Expedition Bicycle Out of the Box

I am used to bikes being delivered with the wheels taken off and put in the box separately, but in this case, the bike came with the wheels on – Even the tyres were pumped up!

Expedition Bicycle Accessories

It came with a number of accessories, of which I only know what half are for!!

Touch Up Paint for the Expedition Bicycle

This was a nice touch, if you excuse the pun, and probably gives you a pretty good indication of what colour the bike is!

SPD Pedals

I used these on my last trip, and they really were top quality. I hope to write a product review of them in a few weeks time.

Rohloff Hub

I have chosen a Rohloff Hub for my Expedition Bike. It's expensive, but well tested, and again, I hope to write a review about this in the coming weeks.
