I came across this more traditional 650B Berthoud yesterday while browsing. It's a very different bike, but the kinship is obvious. Nice big pictures:

Perhaps this really belongs in the road section, but I thought you might all enjoy it here.

This got my vote in the BoTM. In fact I'm thinking of learning French in order to sort me my ultimate 'bike for life.' Thoughts of another custom bike won't leave my head. A bike for the road bust less race orientated than the current fleet. Either that or pay to get the Alan rebonded.
