Philippe's touring bike
First bike to leave the shop in 2017. The client rode 18000km in 2016 and intends to beat that with his new LaFraise Cycle in 2017. Evidently the bike is made for long distances with possibly the largest existing handlebar bag for touring bikes, custom made to the client's specific requirements by TIM TAS & REK (it even has a double foldable map layer), just like the pannier bags and racks.
The frame is fillet-brazed from Columbus Zona and Columbus SL steel tubes. The triple crankset is made in France by Spécialités TA, the Supernova lights are powered by the rim dynamo from VELOGICAL-engineering. Wheels are SunXCD rims on ENE touring hubs with the super comfi, yet high-performance 650bx38mm Compass tires supplied by 2-11 Cycles.
