A few pics of my take on a classic rando bike ie, a touring-type of bike built with speed and agility in mind. In other words, a bike that handles/feels like a racer that can also carry a load, fit fenders, AND go anywhere tires (45c's in this case). It's the only kind of road bike that makes my opinion.
Classic lines, lugs, and lightwieght oversize True Temper OXPLAT tubes used on this one. There's a whole lot of little things going on with this frame that really added to the fabrication time, but I'm really happy with the result.
Custom front rack with a high rake/low trail fork to keep the handling snappy when loaded. Pacenti crown and Paragon brake studs.
Note the integrated fender support and light mount.
Painted in "Park Tool" blue and cream.

Modified Paragon dropouts. A blurry pic, but I included it because I like the lines so much.

You need a cable hanger, so I made one in the classic rando style...just because.

It got away from me before I could get pics with the decals and custom rear rack. Hopefully I'll get some pics of it built up soon.
