Any thoughts on Tout Terrain?

Posted on
  • Hi

    I came across tout terrain in my lbs while searching for a commuter/dadbike and i thought their expedition frames look pretty solid (in particular with the integrated rear rack)

    As i have not seen them on the forum, does anyone have experience or an opinion on the quality/durability?­expedition/

    Many thanks

  • The only place I know sells them advertises the fact with an image of someone wearing crocs.

    Speaks volumes.

  • I thought they made trailers? They make some nice super light trailers, can vouch for them.
    Bikes on their website are like French version of 'stevens' brand

  • In Germany they are very well know. Because, obvious it is a German brand but also because they make high quality stuff. Their bikes are multiple (magazine) test-winners. Magazines like RAD-Touren.
    I like them a lot. Really good stuff. And nice and simple designs.
    Here in the Netherlands they are also not very well know. Only in a few places for sale.

    Ok then they have do to good stuff

  • Very helpful Thanks!

    You think they overpriced or worth it?

  • Sorry had no idea they were German, assumed French from the word 'Tout' unless it appears in German too?

    What makes a bike worth its value isn't always that obvious, e.g. an average commuter might have altus 9 groupset on it (which is fine), but on a bike from a large well known american brand it will likely have, cheaper range hubs/headset/bb/cabling, whereas a not so popular brand might appear to be £150 higher retail, still only have altus 9 groupset, but then has hubs that will last more than 6 months etc. That kind of stuff is often hard to weed out from the mftr's spec sheet.

  • They're great.
    Bikefix say the very best touring bike manufacturers of all, and they know more than a bit about that.
