it took so long to get back to you about this. Attached please find
some photos of my Litton Randonneur.

frame was ordered in 2006. A lot of the inspiration on my side came
from Bicycle Quarterly and the many articles on frame geometry and
bike reviews. The rest of the input came from Ed's years of experience
as a frame builder. The head tube angle is 73 degrees, the fork
rake is 55 mm. Ed built the front rack upon which I'll use a Berthoud
front bag. The main purpose for the bike will be brevet riding,
however Ed will build a second fork with less rake. I'll use that
2nd fork when I configure the bike with no front rack/load. Originally
I had intended to have chrome plating of the fork ends and drop
outs but I dropped that idea due to a variety of reasons.
