I lived with one of my best friends Lee, for almost 10 years. And even though Lee has since moved to Connecticut, I never could get far away from him. We’ve gone on countless bike rides and several extended bike tours together but he was always on his old KHS mountain bike and me on my old Raleigh Competition (also not a proper touring bike). Well, the KHS got stolen over the summer and Lee had wanted a Circle A for a while so that clinched it. I built him this touring/commuter bike that he will be pedaling around very soon. He came up with the paint scheme which has a sort of baseball inspiration. I also recently built myself up a touring bike and plan on doing some trips with Lee. Or at least have him meet me halfway on a trip out to visit him in Connecticut.
