Bom Bom Bom, Bom Bom Badil!

Patrick sent me a whole pile of Bombadil pics!

Here's a nice downtube shot, including the decal

Front headtube view

A rear view shot, complete with seat bag. I don't think the bike's laying on its side! I can also make out the familiar tread profile of Schwalbe rubber.

Sigg water bottle with a nice bottle cage

The whole enchilada! Niiiiiice!
