It’s my fault. I pointed Joe to a slideshow of a beautiful custom touring bike (perhaps the one above), and he fell in love. Brian Chapman builds some of the most beautiful steel bicycles I’ve ever seen. And now, because of me, Joe’s on the waiting list for his own custom touring bicycle.
Joe will have to let us know if it will be ready in time for lejog. I know he doesn’t want to ride the bike he did for LtoP. Meanwhile, feast your eyes on these beauties!
