Howdy, again

This is the last bike for a while, I'll shoot my MB-1 and Witcomb when I get a chance.

I built this bike a few years back for my wife Mel, who needed a comfortable road bike that could go on tours, dirt roads, and long rides, as well as getting groceries, and commuting. The set up is fairly stock, with a few exceptions: I found the SR Apex touring cranks at a local shop, and set them up as a wide range double. The wooden fenders were handmade by a friend of ours who custom made them for the bike, with inlays that compliment the lug shore-lines. They are mainly cherry, with burled maple inlays, and an ebony pin stripe. The hardware was the best we could find at the time: SKS. Compared to other wooden fenders, these are lighter and more flexible, which has been an positive attribute. The plys used are single veneer layers, so where a normal wooden fender might have 3-5 plys, these have 10 or so. They are also (hard to see in the pictures) slightly rounded. The rear bag (which looks better full) is a saddle bag that my wife made for the bike. It's recycled wool with leather detailing and brass hardware. Holds a raincoat, lunch, and a spare waterbottle with room to spare.

The bike is ridden on all surfaces and for all purposes in central PA.
