“I have yet to fashion a handlebar bag & may break down & buy one before that actually happens. There are a few things I’ve still to do: wire the dyno hub, as cleanly as possible, make/buy a front bag, & improve the poor fender triangulation. Also I want to make a nicer mount for the rear light. I may mount it low in the rear fender or utilize the canti brake housing stop as a mounting point. But mainly I can’t wait to get some real kms in the saddle, already the bike is supremely comfortable & stable. I’m looking forward to a life-time of happy rides & experiences. A big shout-out has to go to my employer, Fairfield Bicycle Shop, without them I’d have no frame & a very difficult time setting up this bike with the specific, quality parts that us Randonneurs covet. I plan to have my impressions of the bike written up after I’ve logged 200-500kms in the saddle.”
Aaron will continue to tweak his bike as he rides it and I’ll ask him to report back in a few months once his broken her in nicely. Great job on the build Aaron…=-)
