Wow and no parts fell off the bike? BTW, the Daudon also happens to be Helen March's favorite bike in the famous March family bicycle collection in France.
I like where Camille hid the tool kit. The answer is in "The Golden Age of Handbuilt Bicycles".
My ride was on a 2005 Peter Weigle. I recently obtained a new Schmidt halogen light which provided an extra measure of visibility in the higher elevations where it was quite foggy.
Watchung Resevation to Summit NJ, past Overlook Hospital, up and over Ray Homiski's commute climb (Mountainville Road, past Houdaille Quarry), down Tracy Drive,up Deer path, down Glenside, back to shop.
Bikes- Peter Weigle, Land Shark, Falcon, and two off topic bikes.
Approx. 20 miles 1 hr. 35 min 12.5 mph average 1306' climbed
No rain, but plenty of mist.
