We live in an age of hybrid products or products created through collaborations. The Fern Chuck Touring Bike is just that. Fern and Gramm Tourpacking have teamed to built the most practical, functional touring bike on the market. At first glance, you may question what the creators had in mind. A closer look at the wheels may explain that.
The Chuck is equipped with 26-inch wheels, a Shimano XT rear derailleur and groupset, and rim brakes on both wheels–all to attack desert environments. Finding a place to store your gear on The Chuck will be no problem. There are plenty of well-planned Gramm Tourpacking bike bags strategically placed on the bike. Even with the bags, the total bike weight is a low 23.15 pounds. Three bottle cages, a front light, dynamo, straps. Lowtrail Race geometry, and the Columbus tube set round out the accessories.
The Chuck isn’t an e-bike but it surely is a bike that is one you would want when preparing for your next touring adventure.
