Michael A 650b Randonneur

Here's a classy lugged 650b randonneur. It's got all the basic requirements -- comfortable geometry with a low trail and stable handling with or without weight in the front handlebar bag; it's got a front generator hub and bright front light wired through the rack; the bike has plenty of tire clearance for fatter tires, and long Honjo fenders with mud flaps to keep the road spray off. There's a light duty rear rack that can accommodate small panniers for those short bike camping trips. The drive train is Campagnolo, and everything works like a dream. This is a bike that begs to go out for some seriously long rides, and is meant to be comfortable the whole way, no matter the road conditions. I'm envious of Michael, especially since this one is just about my size.

Enjoy!

Giuseppe's randonneur includes many of our best elements of bicycle design. The details are numerous. We were going for the classic style lugged bike, using a mid-weight steel for comfort and stability.

The rack was built specifically to fit this bag, and so keeps it comfortable and steady, even on bumpy terrain. The rack also has a front light mount on the road side, and the wiring from the front generator hub is routed...

Bill Alsup's Randonneur

Bill's bike is a very stylish randonneur with a lot of subtle features. It has all the requirements for long hours in the saddle, which is a good thing, because Bill will be riding it in the 2011 Paris-Brest-Paris. This bike, which Bill has named "Clara," uses a custom blend of True Temper tubing. The front and rear racks are minimal and to the point. Both front and rear lights are run off the generator front hub. The bike has...

This light, sexy road bike was designed for comfort on the long rides. It's a very classy lugged frame with a small front rack for a handlebar bag, with an integrated light mount on the rack. The stem and fenders are powder coated to match, and the whole bike is a simple design that mixes the best of the classics with a taste for the modern.
