George rides a semi-custom VO Randonneur, so when he wanted a city/commuter bike he naturally got a VO Polyvalent. He writes:
I thought you might be interested in some photos of the Polyvalent build I recently finished up. It's a complete black and silver motif with a combination of old and new components. The bike is intended for commuting, errand running, and social rides. So far, I've really enjoyed the bike. The ride is stable and the low pressure tires really smooth out the bumps.
I like these panniers that Kyle found. They are Swiss army surplus and look neat on his prototype Polyvalent. I understand they can sometimes be found at army surplus stores.
Finally, there is a nice review of the VO Campagne handlebar bag on the Bertin Classic Cycles blog. The rest of the blog is well worth reading too. Check out this, rather dark, photo of a Bertin Porteur Parisian.
