Winter Bicycles "Mahasher" 700c rando

Mahasher- Named for the Indian golden mahasher, the largest of the carp family. The golden mahasher is a slender, large swimmer and shares similar golden flecked green coloring to this randonee bike. The Winter Mahasher is a 700c randonneur speced for energetic sporting rides, running around town, and stretching out to event distances

Looks very nice.

Why not direct mount brakes?

I rarely use direct mount brakes. The center recessed mounts are great stoppers, and if there was ever a need to change units it is a non proprietary set up. That said, if a client really wants them I am happy to oblige.

That is a really nice color, and, anything named after a fish, is cool no matter what.

Looking at some of Eric's other bikes fitted with Paul Racers, I was wondering the same thing, but I can understand the logic of staying away from proprietary systems--god knows we have plenty of that in bikeland already.
