Koga Signature Randonneur review

Koga Signature Randonneur
Cycling Weekly Verdict

When it came to the ride, there really isn't a bad word to say. It's comfort at a new level, and not to the detriment of speed. The kings of touring in the Netherlands have built a reputation based on excellent service and even better bikes. This particular model has me scratching my head to find anything really negative to say. If touring accessories and ride quality are top of your list of priorities, you'll do very well to take a closer look at the Koga Signature website.

All the way from Holland is the Koga Signature Randonneur, ‘Signature' being Koga's online custom orientated service. You don't get a custom-made frame, but what you do get is... everything else. With several frames to choose from, including their well-respected and well toured aluminium models, I chose to go with the steel Randonneur.

After the frame, it was all a bit of a blur. There are half a dozen options in each category, ranging from tyres, to lighting, stands and seatposts, luggage, saddles, wheels, dynamos, locks. You name it, you can spec it. The dizzying selection left me bewildered and excited all at the same time. In the end Koga settled it for me. A mid to high-range specced bike pricing in at €2,500. Which is about £2,100 in our British monies at the moment. Prices do in fact start from about £1,200 for a complete bike and skyrocket all the way to £3,600.
