    Rode a couple last year in this bike below after I got it completely restored.



    Since later October, I have been riding a newer bike and have done several solo centuries and then some. 14.4 lb!

    This Red Randonneuse was launched in December and I've ridden the Lexington, NC 200K on 1/1; the Lexington, NC 300K on 2/2; and the Caesar's Head 200K on 3/8. More brevets are planned.

    The Yellow Roadie is fun on shorter, better weather, daylight rides including Seattle to Portland.

    That really is a gorgeous bike. It's hard to beat an FG/SS for looks, IMO. The blanks, BTW, can often be found through tandem suppliers, as they are common on the stoker's bars.

    The LeMond referenced here is no more (frame broke at the drive-side dropout - click here to see the break), so I now have two new long-distance bikes.

    This one has completed a couple of centuries and now lives in Connecticut, ready for when I travel to the in-laws:


    It's a 2006 Jamis Eclipse frame with a mish-mosh of Shimano components (Ultegra and 105), Truvativ Roleur Carbon compact crank (50/36, came with the frame, as did the Easton EC70 fork), Mavic Aksium wheels, and other stuff that was on the LeMond before the old steed's untimely demise. The only thing that's different on it now compared to this picture is the saddle, which was on another (loaner) bike at the time. Total weight on this (as seen, but with normal Specialized saddle) is 19.1 pounds. There are more pics of this bike here.

    This one is the bike that is with me in DC, and will be used for a lot of centuries (and at least one double) this summer:


    It's a 2008 Pedal Force ZX3 with a Campagnolo drivetrain (Chorus and Centaur), Neuvation R28 SL3 wheels, and a lot of other fun stuff. It's a great bike: comfortable on long haul rides, yet very responsive and light (a shade over 16 pounds). You can see more pics of the build-up here.

    Now those are rando bikes!
    I imagine they're smooth and comfortable without losing anything in speed.
    Very nice.

    My only century was ridden on this, my only bike. It is a Jamis Coda Elite. I do happen to like it a lot, it is a very comfortable bike to ride. With any luck, there will be another century sometime this summer.



    I do have the bars set up a little differently than I have ever seen on any other bikes.

    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    I did a 130 mile ride on this newly finished build last weekend.

    The tubular tires make the biggest difference in comfort. It's a cyclocross bike which I've adopted for road use - the geometry is basically touring oriented but with a very low 74mm BB drop.

    The drivetrain is 1x9 with a XTR 11-34T cluster shifted via a Dura Ace downtube indexed shifter.

    Previously, I rode a traditional road (race) bike, but I wanted longer stays and slightly less twitchy geometry for the distance riding that I like to do.

    I spent a little time dialling in the 7500 yesterday and the bike is feeling really good. The last century was done with riser bars and the new ergos make the ride just that much better.



    My '55 is ready for those long fixed gear rides... I added the Bluemel fenders and pump over the winter.



    Figured that I would also take my Kuwahara Cascade on a few long rides...it too is fixed.



    And I just have to see if the little guy can pull off 100 miles...

    That's a very cool bike, mate. What is the chainring size, and do you have any trouble keeping the chain on it?

    Thanks for the nice words...

    Das:
    The bar in the first photo is the PRO PLT (Shimano's component line) with a Thomson X4 stem. Since then, I decided to move my seat forward and keep my same reach so I got a 1 cm longer stem and non setback post. Narrower bars from 3T as well.

    Six Jours:
    I did have some problem with the chain coming off when I was mashing in the 44Tx11T due to chainline issues. Since then, I installed a chain guard which has taken care of the problem. The inside of the chainring is protected with an N-Gear guard. My gear range is 34" to 106" with the 44T chainring.

    Here's a view from this morning: pictured with mismatch tires as my rear Veloflex decided to get a cut on the sidewall this weekend.

    It never gets old posting pictures of my bikes


    I couldn't find a good pic of my old bike by itself, but here's one with me on it. I've done doubles on this one

    Just wanted to do a bit of additional bragging.



    Pretty much have the bike the way I want it now. Berthoud bag, Schmidt hub with E6 light, and the new fork with extra rake and braze-ons for the generator wiring.

    Thanks mate. Funny thing; the complexities of the "integrated' randonneuring bike have got me thinking about putting together a single speed. Grass is always greener, I guess. LOL.
