    I envy your Merlin, northbend.

    Here's my everyday ride, which has yet to be on anything longer than a metric century.


    It's an '89 Schwinn World frame I repainted and built up with mostly the cheapest used and discounted parts I could find.



    Its "dinglespeed" drive train allows for some versatility in a fixed setup, which is great for all kinds of things. I hope to do some 200 and 300k rides with it this spring when the roads aren't covered in slush and salt.

    I've been lurking on this forum since almost a year now. And it's been a good year for cycling. One imperial century, 2 imperial almost-centuries, over 2500 kms of riding and a new bike gifted by my wife halfway through the year.

    I noticed the fenders on your Trek 520. Can you give me more details about them?

    Schwinn Continental (unknown number of times; no odometer in those days)
    Schwinn Le Tour (once)
    '80s Fuji 12-speed (once)
    Trek 560 (probably 4)
    Specialized Hardrock (once)
    RANS V-Rex (about 12)

    The Le Tour was horrible. The Fuji was pretty uncomfortable. The Trek was okay when I had a good back. The Specialized was actually the second most comfortable bike I've finished a century on. On the RANS I did six centuries back-to-back, quite comfortably.
    What is bicycle touring?

    Been lurking for a while, but I thought I would share my new century (or longer) bike. Had it built by Ira Ryan, with King bling (Hubs, headset, and BB), Ultegra, and Paul Neo-retro brakes. My previous century bike was a Trek Portland - which I did 4 centuries and Cycle Oregon twice on.







    The ratio of people to cake is too big.

    That Ira Ryan is quite nice... lovin' the cantis and colors. Something in me wishes all bikes like that had classic retrogrouch stuff all over, but that's very much a form over function thing. For riding's sake, I hope the brifters and other modern stuff give you the ride of yer life.

    So far, all my centuries have been on my Kona Jake-the-Snake, with road tires. My next one,
    if/when I can get in shape, will likely be on my Surly LHT.

    2001 Lemond Buenos Aires

    Just cleaning the bike off since it is sub-zero temps here in SW Ohio. Having the winter blues and need to clean up my ride. This is my 55cm 2001 Lemond Buenos Aires 853 Reynolds with full ultegras all around. The pedals will be changed out with Look pedals for 2009

    Hope you like it.

    Those 853 frames ride beautifully. Like those older retro decals too. If there is a of-the-peg frame that should keep it's value and become collectible it aught to be this!

    My century bike is a Specialized Roubaix Expert, 2008. Here's a few photos, some from prior BF posts.

    Ah yes, I had Buenos Aires exactly like that one that I sold last year. It was a fantastic bike and I'm still wondering what the heck I was thinking when I sold it.

    Many nice bikes pictured here. For my butt, this is da' bomb for long rides. Yes, I know. I will be accused of being a recumbulator. But I don't have a white beard or a big belly. I do have a pocket protector, slide rule, and I am an engineer.

    The bike is a Challenge Fujin SL II.

    Here's my ride most all the time. 1994 Trek 520, upgraded to 8 speed with XT/Mavic wheels, Nitto randonneur bars, and Brooks B67. This bike has a jillion miles on it, including centuries,three cross state tours, and several unsupported tours. It gets 3000 miles per year. Next year it may get 9 speeds, brifters, and a new factory paint job.
