    Six jours - I've done everything on a fixed gear that I have done on a geared bike and found that when given the choice of running an ss or a fixed gear I always prefer the fixed gear.

    My little Twenty folder got changed to a fixed gear when I sourced out a double sided hub and wheel and although I have a freewheel on the flip side, think I will run another fixed cog instead like I do on my Lenton.

    I would love to try doing a century on a fixed folder.

    Well, I love the rando bike. It's essentially perfect for randonneuring. (Shocking, I know.)

    But I came from a track racing background and I still think there is no bike as simple and elegant as a single speed/fixed gear. And considering the fact that changing out the fork on my rando bike last Friday took four hours -- it's a twenty minute job on a "non-integrated" bike -- I get to yearning for that simplicity.

    As for SS vs. FG, I see the attraction for both. Were I to build on myself, I would make sure to use long, angled dropouts on the back so that I could have a flip-flop with two widely spaced ratios -- one for climbing, one for flats -- without having to readjust the brakes each time. Maybe an FG for the flats and a freewheel for up and down the hills...

    My new century/double century machine. It was finished on the Saturday before my first ever double (Solvang Double). Turned out to be a fantastic ride.

    New England Centuries

    Ten metric centuries this year, one 100 mile century so far this year. Three last year. All on my steel Serotta Fierte w/Arionne saddle. 35 years ago rode ~25 centuries on a circa 1965 Lygie w B17. Lygie is longer wheelbase and smoother, Fierte quicker handling but still absorbs the vibration.

    Hi. It's not my bike, but it appears to me to be a Campy C-Record or perhaps Athena, etc., from the C-Record era. They are strikingly beautiful seatposts, in my opinion, and I run them on several of my bikes. I suggest eBay.

    Forgot to post this after the Daffodil Classic last month. It's officially my century bike now, although I've changed a few things since this pic: (34t inner ring, 11-32 cassette, removed rear rack, handlebar bag on front rack, Brooks B-17 Imperial saddle.)

    Thanks! I just got it at the beginning of this year, so it's barely got the break-in mileage on it. I'm very happy with it... I'm just working out the details on my equipment setup with it. I'm pretty happy with how I've got things now, but I need to see how it all works out for my upcoming 200Km.

    Resting at the 2007 Paris-Brest-Paris

    This is one of my brevet bikes (a Surly Pacer) at rest before Brest, France during the 2007 Paris-Brest-Paris.

    Removing Decals

    Hi,

    Thanks for all the positive comments . I used acetone (finger nail polish remover) and elbow grease to remove the decals off my Pacer.

    Concerning the clean bike, I was quite surprised how clean the bike looks considering at the point the photograph had been taken I had already ridden 560 kilometers, most of that in the rain.

    Tim

    And now for something a little different - a Kestrel Talon. I've done a half-dozen or so supported centuries on this, plus at least a dozen more training rides of 100 miles or longer. I'm gearing up for the Death Ride in July, so there's at least 1 100 mile training ride per week now, with lots of climbing. The frame dampens vibrations from all the chipseal roads around here as well as any bike I've ridden. The handling is a bit on the quick side (ie, it can be nervous after 100 hard miles), but I like it. For anything longer than the Death Ride (129 miles), I'd definitely be looking for a bike with more relaxed geometry.







    These pics were taken on the road to Tioga Pass in Yosemite last August.

    My new Seven got it's first triple digit ride this weekend and joins my '97 LandShark as my century bikes. I gave it a bath to celebrate and shot a couple pics before putting the clusterfluck Powertap wiring harness back on.

    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.

    Man, that bike looks better than ever! I recently got a Berthoud bag myself and love it.

    t'aren't officially a century bike yet, but this will be it. Only could pull off 52 miles today on it's first outing. Might be overkill with all the fittings. but as my goal is to work up to a 400k next season...

    The search for inner peace continues...

    Thanks! Yes, it is a V.O. front rack, and the tires are 32mm Panaracer Paselas. I'd like to use the 35mm size, but there's just not enough room in there for fenders and bigger tires. Just one of many reasons I'd like to make my own frame as you have done.

    Great looking LHT! My brother has one in the same color, and he loves it.
