Have you ridden significant mileage with the upright bars? What is your opinion of them?

1981 Panasonic DX-2000. Seat Tube 66cm c-t. Top Tube 61cm. 52/42 & 11-24 7 speed (not original).

It was forty bucks and now it's finally ready for me to ride the heck out of it. Two weeks until I do the New Haven Century.

Here's my new bike, a 2009 Jamis Aurora. My maiden voyage was also my first metric century (101km) and my second ride a week later was 119 km.



These pictures were taken along the 'Route des Champs' (The Golden Waves Cycling Trail) south of Montreal. I hope to tackle a real century this summer...




Nice & flat....

Beautiful new ride you have there! I love the Acorn bags and the Kinesis top tube bag. I just ordered a Kinesis bag myself.

It's a stock photo from Rideable Replicas. I figure he's probably just trying to be cute, though I hope I'm wrong! One of these days I am going to order their top-of-the-line "Superior" model to ride at our local 115 year old park. Can't imagine putting in a hundred miles on one, though...

She's been some trouble for the past few months. Busted up RD, worn out chain, worn out middle chainring. After finally having it all replaced I needed to put it to a serious test. Was the first time that I did a ride longer than 32km, but it was well worth it.

I did 112km in 4 hours, with some serious saddle soreness. Love every minute of it. Pain is temporary, quitting lasts forever, right?

Finally I'm allowed to post my baby here:

Ignore the straps. I had it hanging from some hooks on my parents front porch so i could scrub it really good and clean my drivetrain.

Just did my 2nd road century on my 2010 Specialized Allez Comp (bone stock sans rear tire).

Just last month I did a dirt century on my 2010 Specialized Rockhopper (very much not stock, only the frame, fork, cranks and the crappy BB5 brakes remain).

Bruce Gordon Rock 'n Road.

The name fits.

I run this bike on fire roads in and around the BWCA, as well as long distance rides.

I use the pictured wheelset on road, with a set of Deore XT/Open Pros with Challenge Grifo 700 x 32 tires off-road, hence the fender line.

This is now my main ride for distance. What a super older frameset!



Adding a Nitto m12 front rack and Brand V bag.

165 miles yesterday on my new 'budget' build. Bought the frame in the 2007 Pedal Force group buy. Finally got around to putting it together. Took it out for a 2 mile test ride, then got up the next day and did the long ride. Not the best idea, but the day went great- other than the dang wind in the afternoon when I was worn out. SRAM Red rocks...

I've done quite a few centurys with my franken Masi...Started out as a 1987 Trek 660 but I replaced the frame after bending the original trek frame. 52 40 chainrings with 13 to 19 seven speed cassette. Dura-Ace headset, bottom bracket, seat post and front derailleur, the remainder is the original 600 Ultegra gear. Sadly, it hasn't seen a century ride in about 20 years, but it also hasn't seen it's last century now that I've gotten back into cycling.
