Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

You could have leaned them up against the wall for free. It worked in my apartment dwelling bachelor days.

now that I am married, I used a mount that spans studs. It only takes two screws to hold it. It is no different than hanging a mirror or large picture.

I'm just not a fan of having to knock around looking for the hard wood, but instead having something that's mobile.

Thanks. Those are freshly laced NOS hubs and tubular rims. I haven't decided on tires yet and unlike clinchers, I don't have spares hanging around. I will have tires glued on for spring.

here it is with clinchers:

Sweet - I would love me a Warbird! Kind of a stumpy stem and a little high on the spacers, but still hot.

I like the frame bag. My Tangle arrived last Friday. I haven't tried it out yet, but am definitely looking forward to it.
