    Is this the one Doug64 rides with his wife or GF??????
    " If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand which feeds you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countryman " Samuel Adams, 1772

    Was this a custom geo build? I ask because one of my curiosities with having a Gunnar spec build done was if the geo could be made so I didn't need spacers and steerer extenders. My current bike is going to need an extender on top of the existing uncut steerer...will look silly but is needed to bring the bars up to meet the extra seat post I need to fit.


    I was curious if you told Gunnar to have the geo for a high bar height or not as it still looks like you need to rely on a lot of steerer tube and spacers to get it done.

    The geometry is a stock 66cm Sport. The fit was obtained using the Guru system, http://www.gurucycling.com/. I had this done a my local Bike Doctor. After the fit, this is what Gunnar recommended. Custom geometry is a $300.00 upcharge, so I suppose a frame could be built to delete the spacers, but it probably add to the head tube length, which probably wouldn't look better. A 68 cm might help that, but with my 931mm pubic bone measurement, I already have to be careful when I come to a stop. Frankly, this bike is so comfortable, I could care less about the spacers. The black ones are gone, that's all they had in stock when they did the build, replaced with silver, and I've switched to a Brooks saddle with a Velo Orange seatpost, and stem. To soon to comment on the Brooks, but I love this bike. The Guru fit was well worth it.

    Thanks for the info, a sport or a fast lane are on my list. Nice to see a close comparison for frame fit too.

    I really like your oldest bike.

    My bikes:
    City bike, 51" coaster brake.


    Road bike, 37"-105" Not really suited to changes but way better for my neck and it handles better than I thought it would. Trying out this summer as a last ditch effort to not sell a nice bike and replace it with I don't know what.



    Favorite bike
    1962 Dunult 3 speed, lower gears, rack, grips, stolen last fall.

    My '97 TREK 820 is currently disassembled for a frame up rebuild, I'll post before and after pics soon. Just finished doing the wife's '97 TREK 820, don't have a good before pic of her bike but here's one identical to what it looked like when it was new.....

    and now.......

    her cruiser/commuter.............

    Once my TREK is done I'll start on a makeover of what's left of this K2 Escape Hybrid but it's likely to be an over the Winter project.

    Jim, that is one beautiful Bertin, I like an orange colourway bike. As usual your attention to detail is impeccable. The Brooks saddle is perfect for the build, too. Is that a Swallow?

    Thank you.

    That saddle is a Velo Orange copy of the Swallow. I obtained it from fellow BF member photogravity. He'd gotten it at a swap meet or someplace and had no use for it. It seemed right for this bike.

    This is a Belgian Bertin with the usual Belgian detailing like the chrome-paint socks on the rear and powdercoating instead of paint, supposedly a C32, 1972. It's a curious frame. It feels odd for a mile or so, has good stuff such as Campy dropouts, should be a decent rider, is moderate weight, tracks well, but always feels sluggish. Maybe better tires would help. Those are a pair of Ultrasports I had from another scenario. Never liked them, but the black looks nice.

    I just put new 22 speed Red on my Pedalforce RS and put the displaced Ultegra 6700 from the Pedalforce to a new Nashbar aluminum frame to replace my rain bike I crashed.
