I'm trying to find a second-hand bicycle suitable for touring Asia for 12 months.

Either a touring bike like the Kona Sutra or Surly LHT, or a hardtail MTB which I can stick some panniers on.

I'm 6', so pretty tough to find second handers in Japan.

Might have a Trek 4900 MTB with hardly any miles on it available and a rack.
It's a 21.5" so it will fit you no problem.
If you don't get yourself sorted out with a touring bike let me know.

Thanks - I'll give you a shout in a few weeks if I can't find anything else. I'm looking to get the bike in the next month or so and try it out in Japan for a while before flying to Hanoi in September. Ideally looking for something that can accommodate front panniers too as my wife will be coming and I'm the stronger cyclist so want to carry most of the load.
