We're cycling from Bangkok to Singapore, a wonderfull, very scenery route! While our idea of cycling through South East was quit spontaneous, we bought our bicycles at Probike in Bangkok.
We cycle mainly on tarmac, this is why we choosed for the Trek FX 7.2, 20 inch (51cm) en 22,5 inch (57cm) in a black colour. I'm 1.75 metre high and my husband is 1,90 metre high. The bandwidth is 700x35 and we're content with this choice.
We changed the cycling rapper for a better version and one of the bicycles has an Italian comfort gel saddle. Furthermore we have four black-red Ortlieb Back-Roller City bags and two black-red Ortlieb Front-Roller City bags.
The two bicycles are bought on the 22nd of June 2011 and together with all the extra gear they costed us 1.100 euro. We expect to arrive in Singapore around the 1st of September and we cycled by then around 2.500 K's.
In Singapore we want to sell the bike's, while we will continue our travels in a different way. We want to sell the bikes including bags and all extra's (except for the speed& distance timer) for 800 euro. The pick-up of the bike's is negotiable.

I use a Trek when I cycle over there, as well. It's a 1998 Trek 730, one of the precursors to the ones you have. A excellent, comfortable ride!
I'm not responding because I want to buy your bikes. I just wanted to say that I like your blog.
