Here are a few new pictures of the Randonneur. You know the drill, it's not finished yet. But we're getting there. Tomorrow I will do the last bits of welding and then I will wait for the lovely parts.
I decided to put the bottle cages under- instead of behind the seat. That has the big advantage that you can pull out bottles quicker without turning them around and that you can also put it back quicker, which will let you ride on faster as well. At first I was hesitant to do so because of the extra frontal surface this change would create, but after putting them on for a try I was convinced of the ergonomically advantage plus that they don't put on that much extra surface at all.
I also finished the fenders, but I didn't take a picture of them yet. That's something for later.
Training is good so far considering that I had a good cold last week. Actually, the cold was quite bad, but that sounds so negative.
Enjoy the pictures and don't hesitate to ask questions.
