I’ve got the last of the components for the Kogswell P/R build together, and it’s looking like it will be assembled soon. I dropped off the handlebars at Topanga Creek Bicycles on Saturday. I’m going to use the Grand Bois Rando bars from Vintage Bicycle Press. The bars are a copy of the 1940s AVA “Randonneur” bar. They have a very distinct bend to them. I’m looking forward to trying them out.
I’m using the Gran Compe 610 Brake on the front. It’s a really nice looking brake, but most importantly it works with this front rack. I chose this combo because it will allow me to mount a boxy rando bag on the front.
If all goes well the bike will be built up by the end of the month. I can’t wait to ride it.
