Not today -- Wednesday, in fact -- but I haven't had time to post until now about the delivery I got from Groody Bros.

Well protected...


...and beautifully restored!


I'll be putting this thing together this weekend and updating the build thread I started last May.

Today I got this in the mail!!!!!!!!!!!!



Love the paint and this cool little headbadge.



Columbus EL oversized with Dura Ace 7400 parts. I mocked it up quickly to sort out my fit but will tear it down now and fix it all up. Needs some paint touch up and that may be tough to match but I'll get it sorted out.

Has 700 x 32 with more room to spare and not the 3 water bottle cages and rear fender mount braze-ons. I'm going to be very happy with this one if it rides well, as expected.

Picked up another Batavus Randonneur GL in my size as a backup/restore frame.






Reynolds 531ST frame and while my other later model has a 531 fork, this one uses a different brand.
I don't recognize the logo though. Anyone any idea what tubing it is or recognize the lugs?

Gazelle Lausanne Hybride X-tra Lite

N+1 strikes again...

I've been looking for a lightweight Mixte for a while and then this came along:

Gazelle Lausanne Hybride X-tra Lite (1995)
  • Reynolds 531 Super Tourist tubes and fork
  • Full Shimano STX RC (RaCing?) hubs, brakes, derailleurs and some Deore LX parts here and there.
  • 7-speed Shimano IG cassette




Got it for €75 so I feel another project coming.
I was planning lightening it up a bit and powdercoating it to a different color but the paint is still pretty much perfect.

It was one of the last 531 frames from the racing department until Gazelle switched this model to aluminum in 1999.
The 90's hybrid interpretation of the famous Champion Mondial.

Let's start with giving it a good clean first this weekend.



Also, shoutout to @Bianchigirll. This is the 56cm version but there is a 58cm model...

Very cool, assuming it came with the original very specific quill seatpost.

  • Sunrace 9-speed thumb shifter
  • Brooks B67 (?) saddle
Time to do some fitting this weekend.

Nothing wrong with low gearing. Us tall people know knees don't last forever.
