2009 Grand Bois Randonneur (TOEI built)



Built in 2009 by TOEI for Grand Bois. 650Bx42 clearance with fenders. I am the third owner. This is a 'entry' randonneur they used to build with Kaisei 022 tubing and no internal routing.

Swapped tires and wheels and wrapped bars.

That looks like it's ready for a day trip or two.

I really like it with the black tires and bar tape.

Are those Gravel Kings?

Somehow looks better / more "right" with the new set-up. Enjoy!

When I see a machine like this I think, Ahhhhhhh. A machine that one can sink his weight into, and leverage through curtains of sunshine, or through puddles of chocolate that fill the hollows after a spring rain. A steady companion on a jaunt through a surprise November snow, up mountains that extinguish the burdens of our failures, and by the sea that fills our lungs with the sweet tinge of decaying seaweed and salt. We should all be so lucky to have a machine such as this one.
