13-26 / 50-34 / 11 speed shifter hooked up to 10 speed drivetrain with a Jtek Shiftmate, works like a charm! Johan also built the decaleur, front and rear rack himself.

This is a one of a kind, the only one in the world. Handbuilt in 2008 by Johan Petterson in Gothenburg, Sweden. This was his first attempt at building a bike for himself, he wanted to build an classic randonneur inspired by his personal favorites. To suit his kind and style of riding. He only builds bikes for himself and in 2013 I got the chance to buy it from him since he completed his new 650B randonneur.

He really jumped in with both feet in this build and bi laminated the seat cluster and just did a marvelous job all around. Even though this is first frame, fork, decaleur, front/rear rack you can really tell there is serious craftmanship behind it all. It's light even though it's all "randoed-out", rides really smooth and does a great job of eliminating all road-buzz without losing confidence/feedback to you as a rider. I've taken it full on touring and it did a great job, it's really just a great and beautiful bike that I'll never be able to sell..
