Our PBP Machine

Photo of the Retro Benotto we will be riding in Paris-Brest-Paris in August. Not the lightest bike on the block, no Ergo shifting, but it's very comfortable and it's repairable should anything break. Note the unusual Rally rear derailleur, which handles the 48/34 by 13-28 gear combo quite nicely.


  1. Why the older bike and equipment? Just to be different?

  2. It's a very comfortable bike, and the vintage and aesthetics fit with the historical character of the ride. Also easy to fix if anything goes wrong.
