That's a great turquoise. Do you have the Pantone code for it?

Very Nice

Set-up. Beautiful, yet no nonsense.

Nice! Looks good and also

Nice! Looks good and also looks useful.


ATB That is one fine ride.Who manufactured the bike originally,or is it custom made from the Reynolds 708?


it's a Raleigh Randonneur - clearly from a time when they were still making better quality handbuilt frames - it's got nice-enough plain lugwork (which i've lined in gold) and a very pretty fork crown. one of my favourite features on the frame is a triple spoke-holder braze-on on the non-drive chainstay which ironically don't fit any of the three different lengths of spoke on those wheels :)

i've read that 708 is lighter but not as stiff as 531ST and similar in material to 753 but heavier-gauge and with an octagonal internal profile. anyway, i've yet to try it fully loaded but it seems to ride beautifully.
