these are from the last 40Km of my cross country tour. Over 4000 miles on my other Bob Jackson but I had this bike brought to me late in my last day, switched bikes out and sent my trailer and other bob ahead of me so I could make the final leg of the trip before dark, well almost... I finished after riding for about forty minutes after dark.

sadly I look at this bike more then I ride it, but I do ride it when I'm not in the city where 70's single pivot brakes are ok. Some day I'll get around to building a tubular wheelset for it, I wish I wouldn't have rebuilt them to clinchers when I got the bike but its still a great bullet proof wheel set, the MA2's make fixing flats a pain and only certain tires will fit over the flanges but they feel very smooth.
