Gallery: Michael’s Easy Racers Tour Easy

Here are a few pictures of my Tour Easy, Molly III. The one that started it all. There really isn’t anything that Molly can’t do, including take me across the country, fully loaded, in style and comfort. Lately, she’s mostly been my winter commuter, the fairing and fenders offering the best rain protection of any bike in my stable. In the past I’ve used her for commuting, errands, touring, and even a little racing. I’ve ridden Molly on all surfaces, from perfect tarmac to chipseal to gravel. —Michael
