The team at Bicycle Touring News in Idaho just opened up pre-orders for the Tumbleweed Stargazer in an exclusive Rainy Sage paint job. Learn more about this limited-edition colorway here…

UPDATE: We originally posted this on October 4th. However, Bike Touring News just sent us new photos and the color is completely different than what was depicted in the computer rendering that was originally published.

The recently released Tumbleweed Stargazer is a nimble drop-bar mountain touring bike that’s packed with bikepacking-friendly features such as thru-axles, clearance for 29 x 2.5” or 27.5 x 3.0” tires, and plenty of mounting points for gear, racks, and bottles. Logan put in a solid few months of riding on the Stargazer prior to its release, and his closing thoughts sum it up well: “The Stargazer is in a class of bikes that has a few good options to choose from, many of which are a little easier on the wallet. However, it’s also quite unique. It has all of the mounting points you could hope for, a substantial frame triangle for fitting a bag, and a very nice roster of specifications. The frame also seems very well designed, offering a fairly supple ride for its beefy mountain bike-esque stature. And of course, Tumbleweed nailed the aesthetics with two nice colorways and classic styling for the graphics.”
