2018 Philly Bike Expo: JP Weigle Randonneur
Photos and words by Jarrod Bunk
For over 40 years JP Weigle has been crafting functional artwork. This bike is a culmination of those years, his hand cut and filed lugs in themselves are art. They pull you in and capture your attention.
These functional bikes aren’t just gorgeous show bikes though, each one gets ridden and tested to make sure it passes the ride quality that a Weigle is known for. Every shape and line of this bike flows together, as the construction and build of the bike are done together creating something gorgeous and refined. The build is comprised of Compass parts including René Herse cranks, Loup Loup Pass tires as well as Campagnolo Chorus. This modern Randonneur is ready for anything Connecticut weather can throw at it.
