What kind of bikes do you use?

Footprint uses mountain bikes fitted with fatter road & dirt (hybrid) tires and a handlebar bag. Although if you are accustomed to touring with your own road bike, you will have a few more punctures but you can enjoy the extra speed. Most local bike shops will pack your bicycle for a small fee and bicycles fly free internationally. Footprint is very pleased to handle transport and assembly once your bike arrives and pack it back up ready for departure. Please make sure your bike has been serviced and is in good working order prior to the trip. Spare parts are difficult, and even impossible to find in Vietnam.
