A randoneuse

Just finished another randonneuring bike. It is very similar to Tom's commuter in geometric design, but it runs gears and canti brakes. The lugs are tubes were different but it only added to the fun in making them. This one involved a little bit of lug cutting and it is still simple yet different.

Tom's commuter is with the painter and I cannot wait to see it finished, it will be stunning. 

Next up would be an mtb, I am not sure if I can make it in time for NAHBS, it is approaching fast.

I hope to see some of you there.

Tom's commuter

Happy new year.

I have just finished a bike that started in 08' and was finished today. The holiday season has slowed the progress a bit but it is now done and heading to paint soon. Other than the frameset, a custom stem and seatpost were commissioned.

A very nice parts list was drawn for this bike and it is heading to Indianapolis for NAHBS 09'.

I will be building another bike very similar to this in the next couple of weeks, this one is not going to NAHBS though.

If you are interested in custom bicycles, plan ahead to visit the show, it will be a big one.
