Now with 100% more Rando

So I guess Gideon is my official test pilot now. He got the first Pret a Porteur (which he punishes daily at a print shop messenger job) and recently asked for a randonneur rack for a 400 mile three day he's planning. Requirements were a) small, b) light, c) extra water bottle cages. It was worth the price break to get a set of the top plates so I can definitely make more of these. $90 without the bottle cage mounts, $100 with.

Dave at Blackstar is making a matching bag for it too that will slip onto that tall backrest and then snap the front for quick, secure attachment. I'll add some pics of that when it gets done.

  1. fantastic! I'm actually getting ready to build up a randonneur, this is great news! I'll have to get one with the extra bottle cages, that's amazing!
