Bought a new ride

Just got a new ride. A 2012 Raleigh Port Townsend. Added a rear rack, front bag, and lights and it is good to go.

Nice looking rig.

I have front & back racks on about half of my bikes, they come in handy so often. I'm guessing we might see you in the utility cycling section soon...

The VO Campagne. I've never seen a decaleur before so it took a while to figure out how to mount it.
