When I look at grainy photos from the 20's to 40's of TdF racers, their bikes appear to have laid back head and seat tube angles, and slow steering trail. Almost like a relaxed, sport touring bike. Any comments?
BTW, I've been lurking for a long time and just started posting. BF50 seems an informative, intelligent, and friendly forum. Just returned to cycling after several years away. I'm re-learning base miles and spinning low gears from the perspective of a 61 year old with 61 year old, over-used knees. Looking forward to where I'll be next fall.
Anyway, Hello all, and glad to be here.
