After recently unveiling the Silkroad II, Tout Terrain is here with another spin on their expedition worthy frame. Using the same frame that’s found on the 26″ or 27.5″ wheeled Silkroad II, Tout Terrain is now offering a 700c build as well, called the Blueridge.

Tout Terrain Blueridge offers 700c  bottom bracket

Since the frame is the same one used on the Silkroad, the Blueridge sees all of the same updates including new Thermocrom steel tubing and a lighter integrated rear rack. Additionally, the frame is belt drive compatible with a split dropout design and an eccentric bottom bracket shell. Cable routing is external but there is internal routing (including through the rear rack) for the lighting system.

The Blueridge includes an option for the Cinq Touring carbon fork with a 395mm axle to crown measurement and clearance for 700c x 50mm tires. Like other Cinq fork models, this one includes completely replaceable stainless steel hardware, a bunch of mounts with their “no-thread” thru bolt eyelet system for increased cargo capacity, and internal dynamo wire routing with a dedicated light mount.

Tout Terrain Blueridge offers 700c  geometry

It is interesting to see the same frame offered in three different wheel sizes. Comparing the geometry of the Silkroad II 26″ to the Blueridge 700c, the Blueridge is 25mm taller in standover height for the same size frame. Bottom bracket data is only provided as BB Drop, which won’t change based on the wheel size. But if the standover height changes by that much, it stands to reason that the actual BB height will change as well. The geometry numbers of the 27.5″ version are closer to the 700c version, but still a slight 6mm difference in standover per size.

Tout Terrain Blueridge offers 700c flat bar

Offered in a flat bar build or the drop bar Blueridge GT, this bike is clearly focused on long distance touring on paved roads. Claimed weights start around 11kg, with pricing heavily dependent on the chosen build. Each Tout Terrain bike is built to order with many options in terms of drivetrain, brakes, lights, rack, wheels, and on and on. The Blueridge models are available immediately with standard delivery times.
