My second attempt at a randonneur. The Follis frame was about an inch too small. This one fits just right. The "super compact" gearing allows my aged knees to pedal up & over steep hills in spite of this bike's heft: 26.5 lbs "dry" and 36 lbs fully loaded w/ water, snacks, cold weather gear, tools, spare tubes, etc.

I bought this frame from the original owner. He had it powder coated red and applied new repro decals. I painted the stays and flutes of the Honjo Koken hammered aluminum fenders to match the frame.

It's a terrific bike to ride: it's smooth, and seems to agree with my pedaling style.
