So… if Chris Bishop isn’t going to NAHBS this year, who’s going to win it? I’m partially joking but Chris’ latest work is mind-boggling. Ryan’s 650b Randonneur frame is absolutely stunning and I still can’t believe how many details are packed into this bike. Head over to the Bishop Flickr to see more!

    Insane design, planning and fabrication. Couldn’t ask for more from a builder, really.

    amazing, those racks are loaded with perfect little touches. the whole bike is.
    I don’t really get the logic behind 650b tourers though, (I know I know its a randonneur)
    -Surely youre commiting yourself to a life of awkward, expensive and hard to find spares?
    Is it more common in the states?
    still, really beautiful.

      They use a 26″ tube just fine and tires are pretty available.

      650b Panaracers are like $20. Isn’t that normal for a tire?
