Looks like all you need to do is throw a leg over it and ride. Tidy!

I love steel touring/randonneur bikes, yours looks wonderful and nicely outfitted. What are your plans?

Made some changes for a test ride.
Better shimano brakes and cane creek levers.
My favourit cranks Ritchey logic
Hyper modern 8 speed index downtube shifters
New Tange Headset
Better wheels

It worked well, I did my first 200 km Brevet in december 2015
Boradeaux-Paris 2016 was the plan but for some reason "Bordeaux-Paris 2016 will not take place"

Next plan
nitto randonneur bars
New frontbag
mudgards
brown bartape
