    My ride on a double-metric and multiple centuries:

    As set-up, my Ciocc is a great "all-rounder". I've also road raced, time-trialed, and day-toured on it.

    Now that's a practical and good-looking bike! I think that crankset might have cost more than the frame, though.

    I finally finished mine. Well, sort of. It'll be for my future long distance bike. It just needs a Brooks saddle. This one is temporary. I'll be riding it on the Los Angeles Grand Tour 300 and some randonneuning next year. Future addons: Velo Orange rear rack, small Berthoud handlebar bag, maybe a small leather roll-up saddle bag.



    Rest of the bike shots are here:

    This year I decided to ride an SR series on a single speed so I built this up from an '82 Trek 311 and some other parts I had lying around. I've ridden a couple 200k rides on it and a 300k last weekend. It's a great ride.

    My Traitor Ruben. Just put together by a friendly shop last week. This weekend rode a 100 miler in the wind. She's a beautiful bike. A bit heavy at 25 lbs., but rides sooo smoothly.

    2004 Trek 5500 (dura-ace) for winter
    2011 Mercian in 953 steel (sram apex) for summer. Recently acquired 2011 carbon Kuota KOM (sram red) and will be interested to see if it offers any advantage over the Mercian.

    Please post pics of your Mercian. I've owned two of them - both in the 80's and both were outstanding bikes. Thanks!

    Thanks for your interest. This is her 2 days after delivery doing the Inishowen 100 in Donegal last summer. Hadn't quite got the saddle height right yet!
    Mercian overrode my request for Ultegra hubs, fitting Deore XTs instead with Mavic Open Pro rims and a wet Irish winter has proved the wisdom of that. The Reynolds 953 frame and forks are utterly foolproof.

    I've only ridden a road century (100 miles) on my 32 pound full suspension Kona Dawg and then rode 75 miles the very next day. I know riding a century on my 21 pound Ridley Crossbow would be no problem. I ride a 100k (64 mile) MTB race each year and I'm thinking of bumping up to the 100 mile version for next year which would be on my 28 pound Kona 2+2.

    Successful 1st attempt at a century with a 2009 Fuji Newest 1.0,
    forgot to take pictures of my bike at the event. It's the one being
    loaded in the truck for the return trip to New York City.

    I don't know whether to call it my "light touring" bike or my "contemplative randonneuring" bike. It's really just a comfy and classy "day touring" bike I use when I just want to enjoy the day, do some bird watching and picture taking, and generally just loaf around.

    Did a 300 km brevet around Mount Fuji on my Bike Friday Pocket Rocket 105 after a few 200+ km training rides:



    Brooks B17 saddle, Shimano DH-3N80 dynamo hub, Lumotec IQ Cyo headlight. I was the only folding bike rider (20" 451 tyres) at the whole event.

    A 1998 Lemond Buenos Aires has been my bike of all centuries, metric centuries, and all to come. I see no reason to use another bike. It's in showroom new condition. It's first century was a "4 loop" century in Aiken, SC. I knew I was screwing up when I posted my fastest average ever while drafting with the first group of riders. Slowed it down riding with someone going my pace and at 88 miles I was killed. I finished only because it was totally unacceptable to go that far and not finish. Mind over matter.

    All centuries since then have been much easier because I didn't do swim team practice the night before as in the first ride and was in better distance shape. Live and learn.

    Of the current fleet these have all earned their big C and many small c's...


    1973 Phillips 20... Custom touring bicycle.


    Also rode centuries on this bike (1987 Cascade) when it was a fixed gear.


    1955 Raleigh Lenton fixed gear... great long distance bike if the wind does not blow too hard.


    1957 Peugeot... all good save for that saddle.


    100 miles on a mountain bike... of course.

    A few bikes need to go out and earn their big C this year... for some reason my road bikes get passed over in lieu of more comfortable touring set ups for longer distance but get ridden over shorter distances at much higher speeds.

    I love seeing people dispel the myth that small wheels and distance do not go together... my P20 is one of my favourite bikes for long rides.

    Nice collection you have there, sir! Is the Phillips P20 essentially the same as the Raleigh 20?

    The Phillip's 20 was very similar to the Raleigh 20 when it was sold here in 1973... the stock bike only differed in it's fork and crank set.

    My Phillip's 20 has seen extensive custom work... there is only one just like this.

    1977 Raleigh Pro - my first (agonizing) century
    1983 Austro Daimler Superleicht - several centuries and one double-metric (very sweet ride)
    1986 Ciocc San Cristobal (my current ride) - multiple centuries and a double-metric or so (fast and comfy)
    Date refers to date of bike or frame purchase.

    OOPS! Didn't realize that I'd already responded to this thread. Blame it on a "senior moment". (Or is that a "senor" with a tilde-over-the-"n" moment due to all the Dos Equis I've consumed?)

    Hey, what are you doing with my Pocket Rocket...? Apart from a few extras on yours and a black Brooks, not brown, it is identical to mine - color and all. I never thought these funny little bikes would be so comfortable. The furthest I have gone is 40 miles and I could easily have done another 60.
