    Ah, looking much happier. 40 miles on Skyline Drive yesterday, something like 4500 feet of elevation. Now I know I can make it up Thunder Ridge on the 18th!

    Alert observers will note that I've gone to 10 speed DT shifters on the Century. STI's with a compact triple (50/34/24) was just too fiddly.

    Very nice pic. You do look happy. I'd be happy too if I could ride up there, or even had the opportunity to try. (Used to hike it long ago.)

    10-speed DT shifters? Are they indexed or are you running friction shifters for 10 cogs? How does that work? Or do you mean you're running 2x5, as in old-style "10 speed" like some of us still run?

    Jim- I'm using DA 7900 DT's, so indexed on the back and friction for the front. Exactly what I needed, as it gives me much more control over the FD shifting and trims. Toyed with the idea of bar-ends but my simian-like arms have no problem reaching the DT's.

    Surprisingly, replacing the STI's with Tektro R200's have actually made the bike feel more stable on 35+MPH descents. I have no idea why.

    I've always been envious of local riders who have the time to drive out to Skyline for the day, but now that I'm retired...

But it's not the kind of route I would do regularly... kinda like a lot of tourist destinations: you're really glad you saw them, but you don't feel the need to see them again. That said, there were some pretty damn cool views, many of which I never saw when I lived here, so it was all good. Passing by the massive Naval shipyards--like small industrial cities themselves--was neat, but access is tightly controlled and you can't get close to them:

    Downtown SD and Petco Park, home of the Padres. The red trains shuttle between SD and Tijuana, Mexico:


    From the ferry to Coronado. Coronado-SD bridge, in the background, does not allow bike traffic:

    Welcome, @slipknot03! Cool bike. Cool picture too! I like the flip-flops.

    Clunker or not, it's gotta have gears!

    Wow, that's quite creation, @slipknot03 !!

    Very cool details, that front wheel spoking is wild. I've seen some here during the Tour de Fat in Tempe, AZ, but not to this level.

    Welcome Ilija! Wicked spoking, can you still true the wheel when necessary? btw Did you flip the pic or is the crank mounted on the non-drive side?

    Yeah, wheel is perfect, runs really good, and it can be trued perfectly if you know how.
    I tuned it only once in the last 1000km. I'll do it these days again, since I'm going for a longer ride

    And it's on the wrong side, I put it there for fun - and confusing people
    So far so good

    It really expresses the level of attitude that this season's collection is meant to embody. I think what we're seeing here is clearly a strong partnership between designer and model, where Jim is really not just wearing the cap but expressing the cap, and through it, the designer.

    That's my "all business" pose. Just got back from a week camping trip. Much fun was had. Even did some mountain biking on the bike above after taking off the luggage. Good times!

    Thsnks highgear. Yes, I hope you can have the blessing of sharing a common passion as you kids reach adulthood. I was riding his Mercian Olympic. Nice bike. His collection includes a Pinarello Banesto tribute and a Fat Chance Yo Eddy. The Schwinn is his wifes bike.
