I'm considering using my 1980's Miyata 312 as a brevet bike - not the lightest thing in the world, but it has decent fender clearance, relaxed angles, and eyelets for full fenders. Behold:
(these days it has a brooks, bar tape, SPD pedals)
One big thing this bike is missing is holes for a 2nd bottle-cage, but the LBS said they could drill the holes for $10 so I'll probably take them up on that - no way I can do brevets with one bottle.
Anyone else looking forward to (or already) challenging yourself even more by riding an older/heavier bike? Then please post here.
Anyone attempted a Brevet on an older bike and regretted it? Please do tell.
