I built this bike to take to the UK and show in my first international show at Bespoked Bristol, but as fate would decide, it wasn't to play out that way.
Half way through the build I fell from a roof and fractured my spine. 6 painful weeks later I got back on the torch to finish this build and use it for rehab to build my back strength back up.
The Raddoneur is my interpretation of the classic randonneur, just with a heaping helping of additional rad. Modernized and designed to tackle the technical dirt tracks of my hometown and further afield.
A lively bilam constructed frame, fork, stem and custom rack form the core of the build, off which hang top shelf parts from Paul, Chris King, White Industries, Campagnolo SON, Cinelli and Brooks.
650b x 2.1 tyres run tubeless make for sweet rolling and suck up all the bumps and ruts.
Paul Klampers provide the stop, and Campy Athena groupset provides the go.
There is a lot of detail in this bike, machined bilam sleeves, engraved details, manually machined top cap, custom cerakoted King Cages, Busyman tape, Kumo bar ends and even Busyman chain slap tape!
