Here you go, Mojo now running 28 randonneurs

The finished ladies bike with an old set of 700c wheels. It originally had 26" wheels and now can use short reach brakes lol

MAN! Nice job ob both counts. 28mm tyres have become my favourite for commuting as well, seems to be a happy middle ground. Hmm...26-->700C + Short reach brakes...never thought it would work...one more reason to horde and tinker :twisted: thanks for the update, I feel like I now have closure :mrgreen:

The shoulder still gives me niggles of pain now and then but I'm back on the bike Dave! Great weather to be able to ride as well.......

28's are a lot nicer ride for commuting but once these randonneurs have worn out I want to do a bit of reserch and find a better tyre. They can be really unpredictable in the wet, great puncture protection tho...
