18,754 • I’ve submitted a few bikes over the years, but this one’s my favorite and most recent. It’s a 1968 Atala Professional that’s set up practically for the wet Eugene, OR winter. Many of the parts were moved from my 1972 Windsor Pro. It’s got all of the characteristics I loved about that bike (light, agile) and none of it’s flaws (toe overlap, no fender eyelets, too stiff).
