Granny Gear rides a Rivendell Romulus, with has identical geometry, so he can weigh in on his thoughts, which of course might vary.QUOTE]
I thought I heard my name. Not sure how to take that "weigh in" comment....
I do have a Romulus (a lower priced knock-off of the Rambouillet)...its the bike with a noble Roman for a headbadge rather than a Rambouillet sheep.
Seriously, I do like the Rom very much. Sport touring geometry, all steel frame--it tracks arrow straight, especially on sweeping downhills, eats and vaporizes road buzz for long rides...a great "all-day", any surface bike. I have an old up-right racer which is good for those 30 milers with friends where you're elbow to elbow and feel better with a "quicker" response. I also have an old light-footed rhinocerus Bridgestone RB-T which feels good no matter what weird stuff I bolt on.
Big Paulie...congrats on your milestone....Be Proud!! I've noticed that Gary is getting out of hand again...not so much impertinent as obsessive-compulsive. We need to keep nipping at his heels before he gets kicked out of his apartment complex for excessive and promiscuous bikery.
With rain clouds (yet endlessly again-- is there no respite!!) over my house, I'm off to the garage for a spin on the boredom trainer--just how much boredom can I withstand before I snap. I spin and listen to the latest Fred podcast...a life saver.
