thanks seeds, but a friend of mine took the pic on our recent trip to gooseberry mesa. I found it unique and wanted to share.

Wasn't my doing, and I don't know much about it, yet. Someone experimented with it, and said it works, but that's about it. I don't know what cage is on it, even after a little thumbing through the Velobase pages. I'll let you know how well it works, when I get around to putting it on something.

So, it winds up being a long reach dura-ace?

Curious because I'm still learning.

It's pronounced, "Co-burn."

I have a new project... I had a bit of money from selling an extra banjo and have been wanting a nice frame to equip with some Shimano 600 Tricolor components I've been slowly collecting.

Just finished my Lemond Zurich project. Got the frame and fork on eBay back in September and didn't get a chance to play with it until last week. I always have a thing for red bikes. Can't wait for the 50 miles shakedown ride tomorrow.

Came across this one today. Regrettably, at 54x54, it's too small for anybody in my nearest family......

This is what's keeping me off the bike these days:



Got the last of the tile laid in the kitchen last night. Started grouting the cracks tonight.

In between jobs this morning, I was able to sneak in a quick walk at Mohonk Preserve during my lunch break. Beautiful overcast day.

Now THAT's utilitarian. I just bought the same U.S.-made Wald front basket from a LBS new for $20. Not particularly elegant, but it holds stuff the same as a $160 asian-made VO "porteur" rack. I can buy another vintage bike for the price difference. No offense, the VO stuff looks nice. If ya got the dough, knock yerself out.
