Thanks for these photos. Nicely presented and well done. They offer a nice lesson on frame design: I'd take the BJ over either of the other two just on the design, which both looks cleaner and has a more functional brake routing, etc.

Jon Spangler whose Peugeot UO-18 twin-lateral mixte looks functionally similar to the BJ in a vague sort of way, but isn't nearly in the same class (drool, drool...) in Alameda, CA USA
