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

Shogun!

Just finished it up this weekend. It's a rider/racer so a few bits and pieces were changed for safety and comfort.

700 rear, 26" front.

Surprised at how stable the bike is at speed with the small front wheel. I hit 45 or so on one downhill and it was pretty solid.

Love it. Is the shifting just friction? Ballsy for tri's if so.....and awesome.

Gorgeous! You need to run it (if you haven't already) at a club TT - you could crush 'em on both time and style points.

Very nice!

My first "real" roadbike was a shogun, circa 1984. It's long gone. Still holds some sentimental value.

Consider cross posting in C&V.

And I just posted how cool vintage bikes can be in nuke_diver's thread.

Point made.

Just curious; I thought GT had some exclusive on the triple triangle. Not so I guess...

Isn't the constant downhill considered an unfair advantage ?
