This one sounds pretty BOBish, but is too small for anyone in my family
(dang, those kids grow fast!) ...

I have a Sekai sport touring 21" or so that might be good for you. I
upgraded many of the components and it has some extras such as speedometer
and generator light.
The upgrades include a Nitto Technomic stem, engraved Modolo brake levers,
new pedals, chainrings, rear cogs, shellaceked cork tape, new Continental
tires, shellacked hemp cord chain guard, bar-end shifters, cantilever
brakes(stock). It has a Brooks Pro leather saddle and a new black seatpost.
The handlebars are Nitto raddoneur bars. The crank has three chainrings,
including a good granny gear, so you could ride this bike over the Rockies,
or the Alps for that matter.
I put a silly amount of money and new parts into this bike while I was
restoring my main road bike. Now it mostly duplicates that bike and I would
like to get rid of the little gray Sekai.
My phone if you are interested, is 360.676.4838.
