¡No pasarán! Rando explosion!

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

It was a real pleasure to make a randonneur frame for Aaron, as it’s not every day I get to build a bike directly inspired by the Spanish anarchists. This is the poster Aaron sent me:

The frame is prepped for a full generator lighting system, and is designed to run medium reach brakes and fenders for tires up to 700x28c. Our friend Dave W at Broadway Bicycle School will be building it up, so watch this space for pictures of the full build.




I’ve also began building a 650B rando bike for Tom; he’s running the big 42c Grand Bois Hetre tires, so we’re running s-bend chainstays to give him room for his 55mm Honjo fenders, as well as giving a reasonable Q factor for his Sugino cranks.



Next: Finishing Tom, Mike’s Spirit for Lugs road bike, Laura, and another MIke! Then – belt drive mania!
