    Here is my favorite bike - classic steel with modern components.

    Thank you.

    The Dirt Road bike isn't really a CX bike, it's a road bike, but set up a little more relaxed - and with room for wide tires, for long lazy gravel road days.

    This bike will take up to 36 mm tires.

    I just installed fenders on my KHS today. I refer to this bike as my poor man's Atlantis.



    People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.

    OK, I'll play. Nothing fancy in my fleet, but all have been substantially or completely built or rebuilt by me, including every wheel in the bunch with the exception of the front wheel on the recumbent.
    First is a 1999 Peugot Paris with a 5 speed Sturmey Archer. This is my all weather, all season bike. In the winter, it gets a set of studded Schwalbe Marathons and keeps on going.
    Next is a Surly Big Dummy with a Rohloff Speedhub. It's complete mehanically, but it is a work in progress from a utility point of veiw. On my to do list when I get some spare time (Hah!) is to build a rear seat to haul my grandkids around. They'll soon be too big for trailers and baby seats.
    My Sakai is of uncertain vintage, but I'd guess it to be at least 30ish years old. I put a Sram iMotion 9 speed in that one.
    I do know the exact date of manufacture of my Schwinn Twinn Tandem. Oct 22, 1964. That one sports a Shimano Nexus red band 8 speed.
    The one that looks like a John Deere is a 1999 Quetzal. That's the one I use for road tours or any time I expect to be going further than about 40km or so. Rohloff speedhub in that one too.

    I have an idea in my head for a new bike.

    Something like a cross between an MTB and a gravel cruiser.

    Rohloff hub, generator hub in the front.

    Fender and rack mounts front and back, with headlight mounts built into either the fork crown or the fork blades.

    Headlight wiring from the front hub, running internally in the fork blades,

    It's an idea at this point, needs some work, some fleshing out.

    I'm going to have Sam Whittingham of Naked Cycles build it.

    I saw your next one yesterday. No pedals at all. There was a fat "bar" that was pushed forward and back to propel the bike. Next might be on where you hand crank the pedals (can't say I've seen that one... yet).

    My latest, a 2009 Ritchey steel frame Breakaway. I've installed a rack for commuting. The wheels were built with WCS hubs and Salsa rims. Compact crankset, rapid rise derailleur, Dura Ace bar end shifters, and my B17 saddle.

    I've already shown my 73 Raleigh in an earlier post. Here is the rest of the fleet. I just picked up the 2010 Tarmac Pro SL over the weekend. It replaces a Roubaix Expert which frame was broken when a drunk 20 yr old pulled out in front of my 4 Runner totaling it also. So far the other driver's insurance has taken care of the bike but not my car or bent 2" hitch rack. After a month my wife is still sore from the seat belt and air bag. The bike is "wicked fast", it's so evil and stealthy I don't think it cast a shadow.

    Bad weather ride, $78 PricePiont frame, $79 Performance CF fork, and bits and pieces from the work bench.

    My first real bike, 1973 Raleigh Super Course TT, again, just can't stop showing it off.

    I'm afraid to follow that ^

    At the age of 15, I graduated from cutting lawns to start my first real job at George Garner Cyclery in Northbrook, IL. George Garner Cyclery was a performance oriented shop with a large volume of racing bikes sold.

    Northbrook has a Velodrome. A wide range of competition fixies, road bikes and touring bikes were always available to demo. I worked with frame builders & racers including Ron Roi. It was demanding but fun, I was very lucky to be there.

    I spent 80% of my summer & weekend income on a Road Race Paramount bicycle. Fully lugged, top of the line Reynolds tubing, Full Campagnolo Neovo Record group, wood filled tubular rims.

    I still have the bike, I'm the original owner, the bike is now 36 years old. New in 1972, I had the bike rebuild at the Chicago factory in 1983. It has been lightly used since.

    Ignore the wheelset, they are a mismatch and not original.







    My Soma Double Cross is my most used bike, 4500 miles since new one year ago;
