This freshly powder coated, Peugeot Orient Express is an elegant commuter, which we've affectionately designated, as a "Monster Porteur". These frames were originally marketed as mountain bikes, but we have re-purposed it with swept back handlebars, Schwalbe "Fat Frank" 2.35" Balloon tyres , Soma Porteur front rack, Brooks saddle, and fenders. Refurbished components include, a more modern eight speed drive train, linear pull brakes, and our hand-built wheels. The long wheel base and steel frame ensure a luxuriously supple ride as well as ease of handling even under heavy load. The seat tube is 56cm and the top tube is 59 making it sort of a men's medium or women's tall with a comfortable upright seating position.
