It has taken far too long to find time to gather all the parts and assemble this one but it is finally ready.
It is not as elegant looking as the Rivendell but the geometry is meant for my own gangly geometry.
Here it is before I muster the courage to cut the carbon steerer to its final length.
Ready for the first test ride. Only one brake, no handlebar tape and some simple pedals but I can’t take the suspense any longer.
On the dedicated cycling path.
Now it’s ready for a second test ride. Got pedals now, handlebar tape and brakes front and rear. Smooth ride, very responsive and fits well. A bit of a wet 40km ride.
And now some images of a 50km ride to the Hook of Holland and back. A sweet Sunday outing that concludes with a sunset on the North Sea and moments later a fullmoon rises – a moon that will be eclipsed by the earth’s shadow several hours later.
