This Space for Rent



I went up to Tomcat Bikes this afternoon to pick up a frame for repairs, so I decided I would take the traditional randonneuse because I can always sling a frame over my shoulder and it would be a shame not to ride a new(ly painted) machine. Well, when the owner noticed this paint scheme they got very insistent that I should put an appropriate basket onto the thing, and gave me this ridiculous little basket.


I’m not going to look a gift horse in the mouth, am I? Maybe I’ll leave this thing on the bike when I start riding 200ks; it’s certainly fashionable enough!
