Small Batch Series – “Super Randonneur” Specs, Options and Pricing

Very pleased to announce that I will begin work on a run of stock frames. It is a lugged steel randonneur frame, dubbed the “Super Randonneur” or “SR” after the award that is presented to those that complete the randonneur brevet series of a 200km, 300, 400 and 600km.  There will be 5 sizes available, and the first batch will be of 12 frames.

A well made randonneur bike balances performance with comfort, along with being equipped for varying road and weather conditions, providing lighting for night riding and capable of carrying a small load. Though designed around the rigors of randonneuring, the inherent features of this style of bike make it ideal for daily riding and light touring. My own randonneur bike has basically been my daily rider for the past 6 years.

Listed below is the sizing chart, standard features, various options and extras that will be available. Being a small, one man shop, I am able to offer quite a few options which probably makes the “SR” more of a semi-custom frame set than a stock one. I hope the information is straightforward  and concise. Please feel free to email or call with any questions. If this looks like the kind of bike that you are interested in, you can reserve  one in your size with a deposit.
