    My new Century - Double Century machine. A bit heavy at 21.7 pounds as pictured with CX rubber but buttery smooth.

    Just took my bike to the lake for a nice little 100 mile ride. I just looked through this whole thread and am super jealous of the steel 650 dyno hub yadda yadda bikes. I'd love to build one up some day, but for right now this is what I'm rolling with. The frame pack works great for a sandwich, apple, windbreaker, extra gloves and balaclava. My repair kit and spare tubular are in my jersey pocket. I do have to say riding tubulars was a great choice as far as ride quality IMO.
    I've also done a century in this but will definitely not do that again.

    my new long distance adventure bike:



    in summer 2014 i think i did 4 or 5 centuries on this... most of them were accidental (meaning i didn't leave for the ride expecting to hit/pass 100 miles):



    in 2013 i did a double century (STP) and some normal centuries on this:

    State of my Indy Fab Ti Club Racer, built in 2006 when I was prepping for BMB. Its seen lots of dirt roads, and rides up to 400k. And some camping and exploring.

    Recently swapped out the 'long reach' Shimanos for Paul Racer Mediums. I can now fit some larger tires under fenders.
    And after breaking my 3rd rear Honjo I'm trying the PDW Full Metal Fenders.
    Took it out for a shakedown today to test the USBWerk powering the GoPro.

    To do - mount up the wired tailight (Secula+ (for post / stay mounting)), make a light bracket that will fit a Paul Rack Adapter bolt for the eDeluxe, and get something larger than Conti 28s or Pasela 28s to ride on. Likely the Clement USH or the new Compass tires in a 30 or 32. And figure out mounting / wiring for the USBWerk, and play with either my Ortlieb HBar Bag or the Jannd Mountain2 front bag. I also have a Revelate Tangle that will hold a 70oz bladder, with hose setup for longer rides.

    Started riding about 4 YO. Rode my first century on a Trek 1.2, three years ago. Got a Surly LHT 2 YO, and have several loaded centuries on it. Purchased a Specialized Roubaix 2-3 months ago. No centuries yet, but looking at attempting a double century this summer.

    My fresh updated titanium disc frenchie randonneur. I have been knocked by a driver one month ago, so front wheel and titanium disc fork were out of order. I also had Gilles Berthoud chrome fenders, the front one was also dead. So I bought a new full carbon disc fork, changed the front rim (H+SON Archetype in black) and remade the spoke lacing on the front hub (which was just new and safe, a White Industries MI6 disc). I also installed fresh new PDW matt grey fenders. They are less bling bling than Berthoud ones, but I finally prefer their look.

    So here is my randonneur in action

    Titanium disc cyclocross frame
    Shimano 105 groupset - Ultegra CX70 46/36 175mm crank - 12/30 Ultegra cassette - 105 shift brake levers

    Lately I've been using my soma doublecross for long distance duty. Not the lightest bike (Reynolds 631 main triangle) and not the lightest wheels (700 x32 tires, mavic A719 rims and Deore XT hubs) but it's comfy regardless of the road surface and I really like the gearing (48-36-26 sugino triple and 12-26 9 spd cassette on the rear). I've been doing a half century once a week on the bike and I'm looking forward to doing some longer rides soon:

    Thank you! The fenders are 700c SKS Longboards and the pump is a Silca Impero. It's since been swapped to a Zefal HPX.

    This is my latest love. Soma Grand Randonneur with Campa Veloce front and rear, and a lot of Velo Orange parts. SP PV-8 dynohub, Velo Orange Grand Cru rear hub, Selle Anatomica saddle, Gilles Berthoud front bag.
    In this picture she's dusty and dirty after 100K on questionable roads. Last Friday I rode 245K and everything seems to work just fine. Next weekend it's time for Vätternrundan, 300K.

    Did my first (and so far only) century on a Ridley X-fire, just with some road tyres on it.

    I've ridden more centuries on this bike than any other:



    But my latest century (2 weeks ago) was on this one:
