After a successful run last year, The MAP Randonneur Project is on again for 2012. I’m not sure what the details are for 2012, but here’s the gist from last year:

The MAP Randonneur Project is a traditionally inspired, light-weight randonneuring bicycle made for fast, long rides, mixed terrain, and big 650B tires. Combining the best in modern materials, classic style, and proven randonneuring geometry, the frame, fork, and rack have been designed as a unit to go the distance and provide the ultimate in comfort.

Each bicycle is custom-sized to your specification by choosing individual seat tube and top tube lengths. Provisions for generator lighting, fenders, water bottles, and frame-pump are all standard features. Frame-tubing is chosen based each individuals weight and riding style for the best ride characteristics possible.

In order to keep as close as possible to the custom process, only a small number of framesets and racks are produced each year. Building begins in December with delivery by June. Deposits of $1000 are taken until my capacity is reached.

The cost of the frameset including the same single-color finish included on all other MAP Bicycles is $3000 and the matching chrome plated handlebar bag rack is an additional $375″

All I can say is email them for more information.
