    I have always enjoyed following this thread. Picture of my most recent longish ride (my standard) to the CAN/US border.

    Thanks,

    Sweet! This is what I call a Zombie Apocalypse Bike (ZAB).
    It is pretty bomb-proof...weighing in at 40 lbs. The rims alone are two pounds apiece. It is a pretty plush ride though. I am looking forward to some single-track short tours next month.

    He! When I built this bike I made a few silly decisions on purpose, style over function. One was to use the original NR crankset. That means a small chainring of 42T (or 41T if I was willing to lay a zillion bucks on ebay) to climb New England's native crop, the short steep hill, on roads laid out in the 18th century before they invented highway codes. That large cog is a 34T, IIRC, courtesy of Pastor Bob.

    It also uses a Campy NR RD (though this one is early 80's, not mid 70's). To handle the freewheel the RD uses one of Henry III's aluminum cages modeled after the Rally. It works well enough, but a Suntour would be more precise. On the other hand, the 47/42 (IIRC) chainrings give it a nearly perfect half-step crossover.

    English-threaded NR hubs, 32 spokes, Torelli Master rims, Vittoria Open Corsa EVO SC tires.

    I have trouble going slowly on this bike. I can spin out that freewheel. But with a more conventional FW my C&V legs couldn't have handled these hill even when they weren't C&V.

    Pass the Dutchie on the non-drive side.
    Rather a 100$ bike with 1000$ wheels than a 1000$ bike with 100$ wheels.

    Nothing like a ride with the sea breeze in your hair and the smell of the salt in your nose. (in the saddle pic of my ride today).

    Drilling holes in tires to lighten them is a step TOO far....Bet that was a wild ride!!! Hopefully no other damage to wheel or frame.

    Got stopped pretty quick and no damage to the rim. We both jumped pretty good - sounded like a ***** shot when it blew.

    About the same with the parents I assume.

    Our boys loved theme parks when they were that age.

    Hmmm, matter of fact, they still do.

    They just don't want to be seen there with their parents anymore.
