    I used two folding bikes: a german Birdy Touring (Riese & Müller) and a british Pashley TSR 30.

    I have the same bike and it is pretty great. I always want to upgrade but in terms of frame I don't know what an upgrade would be (well i my dream world I do but not in reality). someday I will find some pictures of it. I want to get it repainted too but where are you thinking of doing that?

    This is my randonnée bicycle, built last year and ridden through the season (2x 200km brevets, many 100km commutes). It was repainted a bright metallic blue this year:


    Battery-powered Schmidt E6 headlight. The lead-acid battery weighs 907g (2lbs. - a little more than a full water bottle), but provides ten hours of run-time at full brightness.


    Silver fillet-brazed steel frame and rack, silver-brazed fork. 11.4kg (25.2lbs.) as shown. I still need to install mud flaps.

    I'm looking forward to riding it on some local brevets (400km, 600km, 1000km) this year.

    Very nice, with all the details integrated. Don't see too mcuh silver fillet brazing -- expensive and hard to do right. Did you build the frame yourself?

    Thanks! However, the next randonnée bicycle I build (for myself or a customer, if they request it) will have as much of the electrical wiring routed internally as possible. There's always something for which to strive...

    Although the price of silver is high compared to bronze, it's a small fraction of the cost of the other raw materials and assembly and finishing labor involved. Not to mention the cost of paint. Nevertheless, as you said, it's expensive and not many of my customers request it. However, it was a nice change from using bronze on tubing this thin (Columbus Ultra Foco - about 0.5mm at the thick ends of the top and down tubes) to build up large fillets (which I find very appealing).

    Yes, I built it myself (framebuilding is one of my vocations).

    What would you use to do that, brass tubing? Is there a way to get past the bottom bracket?

    I do my centries on my fixed.

    This is my baby. My one and only bike which forces me to do the OC- SD century with one gear. And I love every painful spin.

    52/15 ratio.

    The bikes I have seen simply run the wiring through holes in the tubing -- usually through the lower tang of the lower head lug, and through the rear of the seat tube to the tail light -- and through the bottom bracket shell above the bottom bracket spindle. This is how I am doing it on the frame that I am almost done building. I will let you know if something goes wrong with it...

    Wow, that's insane gearing for riding long distances. Every painful spin is right.

    Its not supposed to work well, its like the boyz that wear their pants down around their ankle so their shorts can hangout - its all about "street cred."

    My 2008 Roubaix Expert Triple - I'm riding it in the Chico (Calif.) Wildflower Century on Sunday and it was my steed on the Solvang Century about six weeks ago. It's a very comfortable bike.

    Got redirected here by a post Machka made in road cycling, so thought I'd join the club. I rode the Primavera century on my 07 Roubaix comp last weekend. I've been doing some saddle searching but my Fizik Antares kept me fresh through to the last mile.




    Hi icyclist - great looking ride. What kind of paint job have you got there? It looks custom?

    Here's my old tourer... I rode it on many centuries back when it was new, but it didn't look like this then.

    I rode it 140 miles last Saturday, when it looked like this.



    Details, for those who care:
    Trek 720 touring frame, built in 1982, before they started putting cantilever studs on them.
    Shimano Nexus-8 hub, twist shifter on flat handlebar (MTB bar) with drop bar ends, aero levers on the bar ends.
    Sanyo dynamo hub, 3E lights.
    Steel fenders from a 1940's Schwinn, but these will soon be replaced with new plastic ones.
    The luggage rack is unsatisfactory; when I do the fenders, I'm going to put my old Jim Blackburn racks on it, the way it was back in '83.
    Seat is a Fujita Professional, it's been on this bike since 1983.
    I'm not going back to the original color (metallic vomit, I think) or derailleurs, though.

    Here is my ride. It's a 1999 GT Edge and although it looks like a TT bike it's not really. It's also not really a comfortable distance bike but whatever... soon to be replaced with a Waterford 2200.

    It's almost all stock 105 stuff except the shifters are record. I'm working on their position so I haven't wrapped the bar yet. The saddle is also on trial... I usually use a Brooks Swift, in honey of course. As it sits it looks like a fashion show but with the Brooks it just looks cool.

    It's done 6 or so metric centuries and 3 double centuries. The rectangular stickers on the seat tube are for the Vatternrunden, which is a 300km ride about the second largest lake in Sweden. It's the largest event of it's kind and sells out at 17,500 most every year. It's an excellent day in the saddle! Coming up again in mid June - can't wait.
