My collection, as a set, is a dynamic group and ever changing. Despite my best efforts to “keep the herd small,” I’ve still managed to stumble across some fun frames that appeal to me, usually when I’m not in any sense actually looking for anything new. A couple of readers have asked for a run down on what I’m currently riding, so without further ado this is my bike collection as of today’s date.
1981 Holdsworth Professional, the most recent of my builds, set up specifically for short errand and lunch rides from my office.
1982 Gazelle AA Champion Mondial Special, my current favorite “fast” bike.
Boulder Brevet, 2012. This is my hands-down favorite bike. ’nuff said.
ca. 1980’s Bob Jackson. Simply love this bike, but I recently decided to part ways because it is just too small. Dammit.
ca. late 70’s/early 80’s Raleigh Rapide. This is my neighborhood and “tweed” rider.
1989 PDG/Waterford-built Paramount.
1984 Peugeot P8, my venerable commuter, repurposed from a POS frame I found at the end of a guy’s driveway, set out for the trash.
1972 Peugeot PX-10 – need I say anything more about this?
ca. 1988 Freschi Supreme Super Cromo, a very beautiful bike with a beautiful ride.
1960’s era Follis, model unknown.
