Finally put on the headlamp, took a shovel and pick, and started digging into the morass of confusion which are the "Updates & Revisions" to previous gallery submissions. At some point a year ago, I figured out something clever, then promptly forgot about it until a few months back. By then, things had gotten relatively confused and out of synch, so I've had to chip away the grunge and refind them. Which has occurred. So, here's the first batch:
Singlespeed Gallery Revisions:
John Busteed's Rivendell Quickbeam
Jim Mather's Rivendell Quickbeam
Gary Passmore's Trek 420
Joe Huddelston's Nishiki Sport
Current Classics Gallery Revisions:
Mark Rosenberg's Rivendell Road
Stu Wemhoener's Raleigh Resurrectio
Stu Wemhoener's Burley Tandem
George Dickerson's Motobecane
Robert Hill's Richard Sachs #16
So, if you sent in a Revision to a previous Gallery Submission, hang in there! I've got them queued up and am starting to move through them. (And if you are thinking of sending in a Revision or Update, please take a second to reference the Gallery Number of the original submission - that helps me find it more quickly.)
In the past week, there were also updates to the Working Bicycle Gallery and the CX Bicycle Gallery.
Working Bicycle - Daniel Dahlquist's Robin Hood
Needless to say, Grant is not the first frame designer who has taken this approach. This laid-back Robin Hood brings a stylish sweep to the genre of Working Bicycles. Robin Hood was a brand originally acquired by Raleigh back in 1906, and was part of their bicycle manufacturing empire.
Here, Daniel has added a stylish front Porteur-style platform rack and simple but functional VO chaincase. The additional racks allow him to use this as a camping bicycle, and it looks like it's ready to roll out into the woods.
Additions to the Working Bicycle Gallery:
#130 - Daniel Dahlquist's Robin Hood
#131 - J. Tackett's Trek Loaded Fuel 80
#132 - Lee Chae's Kogswell P/R
#133 - Robert Clark's Brompton
CX - Kevin Mulcahy's Bruce Gordon Rock-n-Road
Bruce Gordon has been steadily designing and building bikes for over a quarter century. He has always crafted framesets which were more than happy to roll offroad, or carry whatever you asked of them. Whether passing out pocket protectors with the phrase "Bruce Gordon Cycles - Where the Touring Nerd is King!" or engaging in the Interbike pranksterism which was SOPWAMTOS, he was making quality bikes when most people didn't care or notice, and every current builder owes him an acknowledgment of thanks.
Ooops - how did I end up on this soapbox...
Anyway, this Rock-n-Road has all the aspects of what I like in a CX bike - a stripped down robustness, the clearances which can only be found in a steel frame and an understated finish. Plus, there's a chicken on the stem. Can't beat that!
Updates to the Cyclocross Bicycle Gallery:
#64 - Esteban Diaz's Trek 700 Conversion
#65 - Kevin Mulcahy's Bruce Gordon Rock-n-Road
