How is the UTB different than the Rodriguez Adventure?

The UTB uses 26" wheels instead of 700c, and the frame is built wider to enable the owner to install mountain bike tires if needed. That's the only difference.

26" wheels provide two big advantages for the go-anywhere cyclist:

  • Rugged or really wide tires: Some people like the ability to install real mountain bike tires or really wide tires on their commuting/touring bike. 26" wheels make this possible.
  • Super Portability!: If you travel with your touring bike and choose our travel option, the 26" wheels make packing the bike WAY easier. If you'd like to see how much easier, read this.
