Nice ride, Giles. I miss my touring bike that had bar end shifters like those.

I had that frame custom built about 40 years ago. It moved with me from place to place over the years and never got made into a bike.  About 3 years ago, I built up to be a modern interpretation of a touring bike from the 70's/80's....

Beautiful! Mine was a Miyata from c. 1981 that I scored at a thrift store, and rode all the years I lived in San Francisco. Broke my heart selling it when I moved to Mexico.

Cycling during COVID has been pretty awesome I must say.  Roads are mostly empty which makes riding around the city and exploring roads I otherwise would avoid possible.

It's an incredibly fun but unforgiving bike to ride.  Super fast.

The bottle cages on that frame are perfect.

Hmmm, maybe my Gary Fisher is 'vintage'. It's certainly old and knackered.  :D

I threw my white suede saddle on the commuter to see how it would react to raw denim.
