Custom S&S Grand Randonneur Travel Bike

Hi Evan,

Also, on Friday my Grand Randonneur came back from Bilenky. Finally. They did a great (and fast) job of installing the couplers, but they outsourced to a painter that took twelve weeks! Boy am I glad to have it back.

I put on new wheels and tires. Those SunXCD hubs are from your store. As a long-time user of the Paselas, I'm really glad to see those treads on the B-Lines. Tight fit though. Since both are new, I'm not sure if that's the fault of the tire bead or the A23 rims. The fenders are painted the frame's original RAL 1015 ivory.

Time to get it all scratched up and dirty!

Hi Evan,

I went with your advice and got a 52 Soma, got it through Harris Cyclery in Boston. Very happy with the choice and initial rides are very promising. Please find a few pictures of the build enclosed.

Bikes name is TURID

Happy 2014 and thank you for supplying a great frame!
